they're not supposed to be funny....

Last night we're all in watching tv, the fire place is on, the dog is snoring in the corner.  At the exact moment the movie quiets:

PPPPPPFFFFHHHHTTT

Like a single note from kiddo's trumpet.

PPPPPPFFFFHHHHTTT

The dog springs up, woof! woof! She's ready to defend us from the noise.  It hits her, she stops, sniffs the air, reaches her head around and smells her own butt.  Satisfied she has located the source of the loud noise, she circles around her bed and settles back down.  Never mind the scent.

Gagging, and crawling toward the other side of the room, waving her hand violently to get the stinky air away form her face, kiddo pipes up "Ugh, Tina you couldn't even leave the room!  Mom, she smelled her own arse!  Why would she do that?!  Ugh dog what did you eat?!"

I was laughing so hard, it wasn't until hours later I was reliving the moment (sans scent) that I realized, kiddo said the word "arse" and I didn't correct her.

I know - farts aren't supposed to be funny, except they are.  They're hysterical, especially when your dog does it so loud it wakes her up!

PPPPPPFFFFHHHHTTT



Now I just have to decide if I'm okay with 13 year old kiddo using the word arse.

  1. Funny! Your dog didn't even know what hit her. And there are worse words than arse.

  2. This really made me laugh Bay Girl haha. I don't think there's much wrong with the word arse in all honesty especially considering the situation, I can't believe that it had to smell it's own bum to know it has caused the smell, that's hilarious in its own right haha!

  3. LMAO! I love it. :) I really love those moments when you're so caught up in the laughter, you don't think about things like correcting language.

  4. Why is it always dogs? Glad our cats don't do that. Bad enough we had one that snored.

  6. Hilarious!!!

    Given the situation, I don't think that "arse" was too bad at all---ha ha!!

  7. Thank goodness I was able to keep my coffee IN my mouth and not spew it on my computer! But just barely. This was hysterical!

  10. I'm laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes. We have two dogs, and one of them has the World's Stinkiest Farts. But he's never woken himself up!

    I came over from Delores's blog - thefeatherednest. Nice to meet you :)

  11. Hey baygirl,

    Today is your lucky day. Yes, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

    Now then, my human friend, Gary, the human I so kindly allow to live with me, was typing on the keyboard earlier, I snuck up to him and dropped a fart! Although, the little squeaky noise from my butt startled me and I ran out of the room!

    Yep, farts are fun and you highlighted that in your delightful pawsting, sorry, posting. And you can thank my human friend, Delores, for you having the thrill of shy and humble me, grace you with one of my um, eagerly anticipated, much loved comments. And with that my comment has reached the 'bottom' :)

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, Penny xx

  12. Arse- beats the others, and more acceptable than "ass"- can't see that language being in need of correcting.

    As for dog's farts- the only smell thats worse than my dog's farts are my own... but I don't talk about that. I let people find that out for themselves...

  13. Hi, I'm River; came here via Delores at The Feathered Nest.
    Our dog used to fart, then look at all of us in turn as if it were one of us responsible for the stink, then he'd nudge open the sliding door and go outside.

  14. I wandered over from Delores' blog, too. How could I not when she said your post was about a farting dog??? I should be ashamed to admit it, but I think farts are absolutely hilarious. Loved your post. Count me in as your newest groupie.

  15. LOL,

    I think we learnt that Arse begins with the letter A in our Oirish kindergarten skool :)

  17. Thanks for the morning smile ;-)

    Your daughter used the word appropriately and not as a curse so I'd ignore it too. And our dogs offer similar humor all the time - especially when the movie gets quiet ;-)

  18. Yes it is funny and will always be one of those funny moments in our lives.
    "Arse" well I think you have done a great job if she is only using that word in a world where 13 year old's have no respect and trash talk. You are as far as I am concerned are doing great. Decisions decisions. Popped over from the Feathered nest. B

  21. I found your blog via Alex Cavanaugh and I must say I can relate to dog farts. Ours farts so often-silent and deadly and the loud and just as deadly that he doesn't even blink anymore...typical of a male:)
