Does Your Dog Have A Problem With Gas Release?

The Big Dog

The Dog With The Problem!
The Dog With The Problem!

Call it what you will...air buscuit, fart, poof or gas relief!

Just 5 minutes ago I was resting and I here our daughter say: "ALL RIGHT!! THAT'S IT, YOU ARE GOING OUTSIDE, FARTING FOR THE 4TH TIME IS JUST TOO MUCH!!"

I'm sorry, but I couldn't help from laughing. I had to write a hub about it:) You see you have to know a little more history about our dog.

He is a Big Dog, he is the best dog we have ever had. He stays home, guards our home,and he loves our family. So at night we let him in the house to spend some time around us. This is so hard to do, and I will tell you why.

He will lay down behind where we sit, because he knows he is not aloud on the carpet in the living room. He is so sweet, he wines when he can't come in the house, to be near us. So we give in, but it seems it is getting to be more than we can handle.

Every Night, he gets all relaxed and before too long, he just can't help himself, he has to pass some gas. Sometimes we get a warning, we actually hear a sound pphhhhtttt!!! Then here comes the smell, remember I said he is a big dog. I guess with Big Dogs, there comes Big Gas!! My husband said maybe we can get a plug for him, so he can stay in the house. Poor guy the dog that is, as soon as he let's go, I call his name. He is already up on his feet, with his head dropped, headed for the door. I feel bad, but the smell is really bad.

One time we had a group of friends over for a Christmas Party. After dinner we were all sitting around the table talking getting ready to play a game of cards...all of a sudden there was this horrible smell permeating through the air! I pushed my chair back and looked underneath the table, and sure enough, there he was! How he got there nobody knows. How could we miss him, he is big. Yes there he was laying quietly, wanting to be a part of the festivities. So again _______! Out! Out! I had to apologize to our guests. They were all laughing, they couldn't believe it either!  I think we were all relieved to know it wasn't one of us that had the problem, it was the Big Dog!

He has another habit, of loving to swim, sit or lay in water. So in the summer he finds a stagnant pond and he gets sopping wet. When our friends come over, they think too, he is such a great dog that they want to pet him... but he reeks!! This makes it even harder to want to let him in the house. In order to get the smell off of him, we have to give him a bath with tomato juice and a second dose with shampoo. Within 24 hours he has done it again, back to being the same stinkin dog.

Thankfully he has more good qualities than bad, and I have to say: "We Love That Big Stinkin Dog!A little gas relief for him might be good, but not so good for us. So "We might have to wear a clothes pin on our nose, but we do love him.

Does your dog have a problem with gas release? I feel for you:)

I'm glad to hear someone can relate to what I am talking about! Too bad, allot of gas has to come between the dog and the masters? Just last night he was in, and fumigated the office:( So sad when he drops his head, as he heads to the door! Thanks for stopping by:)

Okay, you had me laughing at this hub just because I knew what you are talking about. I have a big dog and I have a small dog, when the big one lets out gas I could swear the neighbors can smell it. Now when it comes to the small one who eats the same food I dont think she even passes gas..I know why, she is a lady..lol

Of course with all the great hubs here about life, spirituality, and God I will choose the "dog fart" hub to read first. What can I say? That is my sense of humor. This is a great hub. Thanks for putting it together.

Sometimes I could use a dog to blame things on!

This hub is just too funny. Had a great laugh. I can definitely relate to this story. Thank God our "little dog" equals a little problem - but a problem just the same. Enjoyed the story!
