What is up with dogs and stinky things? For all their vaunted sense of scent they love rotting things. Our guys will never miss an opportunity to roll around in dead carcasses / number 2 of some other creature. Today Ginga went outside the house to take a stroll and found somebody's garbage that had been left outside, on the footpath. So he tore into the stuff and managed to eat quite a bit before we caught him. Then he realised that he was in trouble and got his teeth brushed with the peanut butter as well as the bubble gum toothpaste. The comment was made that nobody will be scared of him now because he smells like bubble gum. Whatever he got into was quite stinky, though. What a species. Those two hate taking a bath but no problem bathing in mud with all sorts of detritus that stinks so badly that we have the car windows open even though it's 1 degree outside.
Being scavengers they probably are attracted to garbage. I guess in the wild wolves wouldn't have lived very long if they refused to eat food that had been lying around. So that explains the love for rotting food, but I still don't know about rolling around in stinky things. Maybe it's their perfume. Eau de dead squirrel, that won't make Ralph Lauren's next line.
सड़े हुए चीज़ें शायद उन्हें इसीलिए पसन्द हैं क्योंकी भेड़ियों की ऐसी स्तिथी नहीं थी कि वह किसी भी खाने को ठुकरा सके। सड़ा हुआ तो सड़ा हुआ, नहीं खाया गया तो ज़्यादा देर अपना भेड़िया जीवित रह नहीं पाता। इससे तो पहले की बात समझ मे आई, लेकिन यह मरे हुए जान्वरों के ऊपर लेटने का क्या चक्कर है? शायद यह उनकी खुशबू है। यह 'मरे हुए गिलाह्री' का सुगन्ध लोगों के लोक मे सफल नहीं होगा।
