For Hire: Worm Dog

Huh? What the heck is this you ask? No, it's not some new breed of dog ;o)

Awhile back, I was telling Lori-Ann that my little dog Brie, loves worms. The unusual talent presented itself last summer. DH and I would see her out in the yard sniffing around and then her nose would go right into the grass. A little scratching at the spot and then she'd roll. We kept wondering what on earth she was doing.

Finally, curiosity got the best of us. What we found was a nice big juicy worm :oP Ewwww, is right! For some reason and somehow, Brie loves worms. She not only rolls in them but she actually 'detects' them! On Friday, I had my camera out and was able to capture the evidence ;o) This is our little wonder rolling in the worm -


Here is the actual worm -


Yup, that's what she was rolling in! Gross, I know. That might account for some of her stench. LOL!

There's a house up the road that is advertising worms for sale. I'm almost tempted to take Brie up there and hire her out. LOL! Who knows, maybe Brie was a robin in another life ;o)

It depends on what kind of dog she is. Some hunting dogs roll around in smelly stuff like manure to get rid of their scent.
The silks are gergeous.

Our goofball Dachshund sometimes scrubs in the yard...I'll have to take a look and see if he's scrubbing on a worm. I always assumed it was bird poo or rabbit raisins (he eats those, too...ick)...maybe it's earthworms!

YUCK ! Tiger likes to roll in dead birds. Duncan looks like he wants no part ot the worm :)

Paisley said...

LOL! That is too funny! (And just a little bit gross!)

News Flash! Happy Birthday may not be copyrighted, but it will take a lawsuit to settle it out.

That is weird and funny!

Karen said...

lol Your other dog doesn't look impressed

Cindy said...

That is too funny! I never would have guessed that a dog would want to roll around on worms!

Lori-Ann said...

Photographic evidence! Priceless, LOL.

I was going to suggest that could be the source of all foul odors.

Frankie rols in birds poop and likes to eat it as well as old chewing gum off the pavement. Eeeewww!! Why must they do this???!!

My dogs usually roll in smelly, disgusting things. Your LK finish is very cute.

She does look like she's having fun, but to bad it isn't something you'd like her to roll in. I'll bet worms do add a bit to a smell factor after a while. It never ceases to amaze me what dogs like to eat, roll in, and voluntarily smell.
