If you knew me IRL you would understand that my entire life is about poop and hair and their management.
Sabu is not as refined in her tastes as I wish she was. Last night she demonstrated a lapse in judgement so profound I almost laughed.
There are several walnut trees in the park. Where nut trees are found, squirrels can often be found, and such is the case here. Sabu has a red hot burning hatred of squirrels and if she were ever to get off her leash there would be blood running in the streets, provided she could catch one of the little bastards.
Where there are squirrels, there can sometimes be found squirrel poop. Yeah, I just said that. Sabu has a very strong desire to do one of two things when she encounters poop of any kind: roll in it or eat it. Neither option meets my approval and mostly I’m able to drag her away before she befouls herself.
Last night we were out walking after dark and she managed to snarf down a treat of something before I could stop her. She was so proud of herself! She strutted all the way home with a smile on her face and a spring in her step.
After we got inside and were settled in to write and listen to an old episode of Dexter, she horked her “treat” up all over the carpet. She was not ashamed and would have eaten it up again (yes, she is just that gross) if I hadn’t stepped in with a wad of paper towels. Gak!
It could have been nothing but squirrel poo, as it was full of nut shards and Sabu does not care to eat walnuts and even if she did, OMG I am just going to stop there.
If you were wondering, yes, squirrel poo does indeed contain nuts.
