The "F" word...

Before you gasp and wonder if Kess' blog has gone to the dogs (idiom meaning: it has gone badly wrong and lost all the good things it had), this four-letter "F" word is not a bad word that humans sometimes use when they are angry...

It all began with a car ride. My humans and I had gone to visit her sister for a family get together. Now, mum's sister lives about an hour away. That's not a problem for me as I've gone on car journeys as long as 4 hours. Usually, I would peer out of the car window and check out my surroundings. Once I'm satisfied that all is well, I'll settle down for a snooze. This trip, my human even brought along my bed to put into the trunk/boot of our SUV. So, I was very comfortable.

On our return journey, my humans suddenly smelled something foul. Oh oh...they thought, Kess has done it again...and they quickly rolled down the windows. If you haven't guessed by now, I FARTed, or to use the correct term, "flatulence". Now, in a small enclosed area, such as a car, the combination of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, methane and hydrogen gas (scientific term: flatus) can be quite potent. So my humans, weighing their options of inhaling exhaust fumes from the other travelling cars or inhaling my "flatus", the choice is the lesser of two evils...So the windows came down until the odour was dispelled.

Honestly, I don't know what the big deal is...It's not like dogs are the only ones who fart. Humans do too!

When the winds blow in our house it can be quite potent too - my Mam grabs for the air freshner and depleats a bit more of the ozone layer!!!


Way to go Kess. We won't get in a contest with Dog Dad though. One time he had extra hot chili. Essex barked at Dog Dad and walked away. BOL

Kess - just tell your humans to be glad that you're not MY size - hee! hee! - my humans say the "F-word" with me is a major environmental disaster and they have to practically rip out gas masks!! :-)

Imagine that!
I mean, our fart's definitely less toxic than the air on the roads! Crazy humans - they can't tell the good from the bad!
But then we can't let them suffer either, so as Maggie and Mitch said, Fart On!
Wise Wags,

Thanks for signing my guest book.
