I'm lucky, too, one of mine is the same way! My one dog thinks she's a little princess and tiptoes around even clean puddles! This is my rescue dog. Imagine being a lost little kid, and have this "hero" dog come to save you, but go around the long way because there's deer poopy in the way!
I can't imagine what Evie would get in to if she was an outside cat, though. She's such a little huntress... She may not roll in dead stuff, but I'm POSITIVE she'd kill it and bring the SOURCE of the stench inside.
catloverin_ks- where do your dogs get in to the stinky stuff? Out on walks? In the back yard? Or do they run free? There are ways of keeping them out of the nasty stuff. Leashes if on walks, or training them to stay away from it (if you know what it is). I know stinky dogs are no fun (boy, do I know!), I could share of my tactics to resolve the problem at the source. They're not fool-proof, but if you'd like, I'd be happy to share.
