Stinky Linky

Some of you may have heard my little sister, Minnie Moo, call me "stinky." My whole family affectionately calls me "Stink-lon" or Stinkster or Stinky Linky. I try to keep pretty clean but I like to roll around in the grass. And if you've ever been a pug, it's pretty difficult to keep all those face wrinkles smelling likes roses. If you ask me, I smell better than Minnie but I guess that's a matter of opinion.

Anyway, I really smell right now or so I've been told repeatedly. Sometimes Mama takes me out in the front yard without a leash. I'm pretty good about staying right next to her. The two houses on either side of us are empty, so there isn't a whole lot of places I can go. Two houses down though, the neighbor just re-mulched her front yard. I'm not sure if you've ever smelled new mulch but it smells GREAT. Mama disagrees but boy, was it tasty. Yep, that's right TASTY, I tried me some manure that I found in the mulch. Between gagging and screeching, Mama managed to drag me away from one of the best meals ever.

Mama tried to wash my face off. Then she brushed my teeth. Supposedly, I still smell bad enough to make people's eyes water or remind them of a barn. No one wants me to cuddle or sit within five feet of them. Any ideas for dog breath mints?


  1. You're a dude, right? And dudes are supposed to smell! Just sayin' And we kinda like the name Stinky Linky :)

  2. Poor Link!!! I can't believe no one will cuddle with you!! Tell your momma to try coconut flakes!! They are supposed to help with not so fresh breath!! =)



  3. I think I've actually heard my mom pray thanking God that I don't have an appetite for such things. I'm not sure about breath mints, but Lincoln, I'd watch out because I think a bath may be in your future!

  4. I bet that mulch was tasty-licious, dude!

    I think I might suggest a good scrubbing, sorry, lol

  5. I love the smell of mulch, too. But whenever I try to rub my face into a nice fresh pile, my 'rents tug me away by my leash. Glad you were able to get a little mulch action in before you were restrained. My dad brushes my teeth, or at least attempts to, every night. I think that keeps my breath pretty clean - plus I eat dry food which I read is better for the teeth (and thus the breath). How about one of those "mint scented" edible bones?

  6. Uh Lincoln,
    I, uh, think your Momma is right cuz, uh, I SMELL you from here!!!!
    Do you really eat manure? I smell it . . . but eat it. . . not so sure.
    I still luvya tho

  7. He he he, we personally love stinky!

    Drools and licks,

  8. Hi Lincoln

    I never got to roll in any muchy stuff, but sometimes I find a nice dead mouse to roll in.
    Thatr freaks my moms out.
    Hummm. will water mellon help your breath?
    It does mine!
    I hope the smell goes away,, so you can get some kissys.. you little stinker you!

  9. Ah, poor you, being dragged away from your snack! And what's up with everybody? Puggies are supposed to be stinky - and the stinkier, the better!

    Pug love from,

  11. Oh no....... that is kinda gross. I almost gagged just thinking abouts it. You better hops in the tub my friend.


  12. Mmmmm mulch! I too appreciate the brown variety treat. Good for you buddy. Stinky Linky does have a great ring to it.
