Tree Sap

Funny story....
I took Charlie, our little Italian greyhound, outside and I guess he rubbed up against some pine tree branches. We got inside and I was putting in a movie and I heard him behind me acting crazy, I thought he was playing with his toy, when I turned around it was quite the scene. He was frantically scooting his whole left side of his body across our carpet, couch, blankets, anything. He kept going getting more frantic so I grabbed him and could smell something funny but didn't see anything, then I felt it, tree sap on his coat. Putting him in the bath did nothing now he was wet and had tree sap on him. Now he was rolling over doing backflips while scooting on our carpet. I ran to target and the only thing I could find was adhesive remover. When I got back he was still being crazy so it was hard to keep him still, but amazingly enough it worked. Try explaining to a target associate that you are looking for some kind of remover to get the tree sap off of your dog that has probably torn up your apartment by now, see what kind of looks you get.

Oh man...I've had to do this with our two beagles, but you were much smarter than me...I just combed their hair until I'd combed it all out...never thought of an adhesive remover...I'll have to remember that one! :)

I will ask next time I am in target and see what they do. LOL. I love hearing about the crazy things that Charlie does.

I am glad you found us and of coarse I don't mind you adding me. It is fun to hear about all that is going on in your life. Take care of yourself. I can't believe the adhesive remover actually worked! That is so funny.
