Why, oh, why do dog's feel a necessity to roll on something dead? Today was closing day of duck season and I had the good luck to knock down a green head mallard. Starlight retrieved it like a champ, dropped it at my feet, unusual for her, then scamppered off to roll around in the weeds. When I called her in she smelled like something that could knock the proverbial "Buzzard off a S*** wagon." She rode home in the back of the truck. (I have a topper) At least 30 minutes shampooing her outside before the lady of the house would permit her back in. If I'm camping and fishing by the river she will find the nastiest, three day dead Carp and roll in that. Isn't that pleasant in a tent? So it's down to the river and scrub with hand soap. I end up smelling worse than the dog. I asked two veterinarians about this and got two different answers. One said dog's do it to repel predators. The other said dog's did it to attract smaller predators so they can kill and eat them. What are your thought's?
