Okay...this really is kind of gross. And funny. And...yeah, it's just weird.
This morning, I took Daisy (our Boxer) out to do her business, and she did this weird hop with her back end and glanced over her shoulder. I thought she stepped on a small clump of half-melted snow, and paid it no mind. Then she did it again, only it was three hops, and she looked up at me as if to say "What the heck is back there?!" So, I looked. And, apparently, dogs can get "ladies issues" as well, because there was a whitish string of mucus, about an inch long, dangling from her hoo-hah. I had to get it off with a leaf. She scooted when we went back in, too. I couldn't help it. As grossed out as I was, I was laughing. Fortunately, the vet says it's nothing to worry about.
