The Art of a Dog Fart

Am I right in saying all dogs fart?

What do you do when your dog farts?

If you’re like me, you either cover your nose or you laugh.

Most dogs I know of have those quiet but (mostly) deadly farts.  The kind that stinks up on you and takes you by surprise, because there is no notice.

Not Delilah.

Delilah farts like a human.

I was sitting on the couch, eating a snack.  Sampson and Delilah were sitting in front of me, patiently waiting for me to drop or give them something.

All of a sudden there was a loud noise, like someone blew a raspberry.  I looked at Delilah, my eyes wide and she, ever so casually, turned and looked at her butt.

I busted out laughing and Hubby said, what did she do?

I couldn’t talk, I was laughing too hard.

Seen about town.

We’ve had some decent snow here in the northeast.  When I went over to watch my grandchildren last Saturday I took a picture of the snowman my sweet little grandson made.

They live in an area where the front yard gets a lot of sun, and it was quite warm last Saturday (which is probably why Frosty bit the dust.)

Back where I live, our front yards don’t get a lot of sun.  As I drove past my neighbor’s house, this sea serpent/dragon caught my eye.

I thought it was super cool that my neighbor and her grandsons built it around the telephone pole and they colored the snow too.

When I walked up to take the picture I commented to my neighbor how very cool it was and she drew my attention to the Husky Dog they’d also made.

IMG_3817 Besides the fact it’s a dog, I love their attention to detail.

Today I’m joining our friends at the 2 Brown Dawgs blog for This ‘N That Thursday.

Because sometimes you have a little of this and a little of that, but neither one is enough for a full post. :-)  Many thanks to 2 Brown Dawgs blog for letting us tag along.

Siriously, have you ever HEARD a dog fart?

    Those snowm…snow creatures are very very cool! I’d already seen the snow dragon somewhere on the Internet, forget where.
    Gracie is not a farter, but darn it that Henri is, and for a little pup they sure are stinky!

    OMD!! I’m still laughing!! The poodles my family had when I was growing up were “silent but deadly” farters, especially after a treat of chicken skin. My own poodle — Callie & Shadow’s predecessor — didn’t fart that much, but only rarely were they “deadly”. Of course, I didn’t give her chicken skin either. Callie’s farts are usually silent and stinky, but not too bad. Poor Shadow, on the other hand, squeaks when she farts and startles herself. Poor dog literally jumps up off the floor, tucks her tail, and tries to run away from herself. If her facial expression wasn’t so pitiful, it would be hysterical! I can’t help but laugh every time it happens but then I feel guilty for laughing at her momentary misery.
    Love your grandson’s snowman, and your neighbors’ snow “sculptures”! Very creative!!

      OMD Sue, that’s funny, poor Shadow I would still probably laugh. Sampson’s are the quiet ones that stink up on you, but Delilah usually squeaks too, or sounds a bit like a balloon releasing air. Then there are the times when she sounds human! LOL

    • Jodi Stone says

      LOL it’s like Delilah was surprised too, it could only have been better if she’d stood up to investigate, but of course I probably would have peed my pants. :-)

    Love all the snow sculptures. I need to try to make another one this year. There is certainly enough snow for it! I’ll have to come up with something just as creative as the sea serpent! That is impressive for sure.

    Only you could pull off a post about dog farts. 😛

    • Jodi Stone says

      Do you make snow sculptures Kristine? I’ve never made one, only snowmen, but then I’m not creative either. :-)

      Oh I bet you could pull it off, you don’t give yourself enough credit.

    Don’t know why, but my sister and I don’t pass gas much at all and mom can’t even remember a silent but deadly occasion. Once and a while I make a little “toot” which scares me, I look at my behind, sniff it and just don’t know what to make of it and mom laughs at me saying that I tooted! I guess we are lucky that there isn’t deadly gas in our home.

    I know I know everyone says this but seriously, Gizmo doesn’t fart…honest! I cannot remember him farting…don’t know if that has to do with his (grain-free) diet or maybe he’s just too polite to let me know about his intestinal issue BOL!

    The image of Delilah looking at her butt to see where that strange sound had come from is beyond funny. My dogs only fart when they have had more veggies than normal. I finally found a dog food that has stopped all gaseous emissions.

    That’s funny Linus farts like a human and always turns around to look back at this butt too. It is quite hilarious. Stetson does the SBD’s.

    Pharrrrrrrts are the BESTEST thingys… WE love em!! They make our MOM so happy she sometimes Laffs until tears run down her legs.
    A snow sculptured SQUIRRLE.. THAT is what I saw there.. It Terrified me.

    Too cute that Delilah surprised herself with her own fart. :-) Leah farts when she’s excited…like when she’s watching cats out the window. Between her extra-tall height, and the fact that her tail curls upward, we get the pleasure of not only hearing it, but seeing it too. :-(

    Thanks so much for participating in TNT. :) With three dogs, we do a lot of covering of our noses. lol

    I love all of the snow art pictures. Very talented. They make cool paints for snow these days. Where was that stuff when I was a kid?

  11. says

    I loved reading about Delilah and her farting, this post is hilarious, thanks for the laugh!
    It’s unusual to hear a dog fart, they are normally silent but deadly!

    my Shadow farts. between her and TheEngineer, some nights i get run out of the bedroom!! Shadow also scares herself at times and tries to run away from her butt, but mostly its the really smelly ones in the middle of the night.

    she’s just a wee little poodle girl, though, so we understand it when these things SCARE her making loud noises from her tail end. 😀
