Don’t eat the butter!!!!!

Little known fact (which could be a widely known fact but I didn’t know it until I googled): butter will help dissolve tree sap from a dog’s coat.

Confession: in the fog of sleep you can be milliseconds from slathering dog hair infused butter on your husband’s English muffin.

So last year we had a ton of trees (only a slight exaggeration) taken down. The result was tree crap everywhere in the yard which would annoyingly find it’s way stuck to the dog’s fur. It would then mat and get all nasty. I tried cutting it out to no avail. So I went to the internets and found an answer. Butter.

You just take a glob of butter and work it into the glob of sap. After a while the sap is dissolved. Sounds easy right? Yea, not so much. Thing is dogs love butter. And as you are trying your best to remove what I can only imagine is a somewhat uncomfortable glob of tree sap and wood chips from their belly, they are trying their best to eat the butter from your hands. Makes for a very messy and greasy experience.

Anyways- moral of the story: if you have occassion to be at my house and I offer you something buttered, it would be in your best interest to say no thanks. Otherwise you might find yourself unintentionally flossing with some black lab hair.
