    Ok, little Nikita has an embarrassing personnal issue!....She farts lots...no noise but god do they smell!!

    When we first got her I did think the first few days she might get a bit of the the old sloppy poops or wind due to the stress of being brought to her new surroundings etc but she has settled in beautifully right from the start, her poo is as it should be so no upset tummy issues or anything.

    At the moment she is laid fast asleep on her back on the rug, looking about as chilled out as a puppy can be...but every now and then a truly nasty pong wafts our way while she carries on snoozing, I wish farts were coloured...at least that way we could see them coming and have some warning!

    Astro does the exact same thing. You think it's safe because he's asleep, but you're not. The are silent killers in my opinion!

    Well that is my plan, at the moment she is on Royal Canin...which isn't my choice but the breeder had her on it, I was going to just give it a bit of time on the same thing as I didn't want to risk upsetting her diet while she's still getting used to us and her new home....then I'm hoping to get her onto raw.

    Until then I'll have to just put up with the stinky little bugger :rolleyes:

    Sounds like you've got it all under control :) In the meantime invest in some pegs? :D

    We've never heard or smelt any of Clover's so we are lucky but Duke does silent one's and one's that are very quiet but he does them then looks at my husband with disgust and huff's then walks off as though he's blaming him :lol:

    Not sure I could bear it - Denver's are 'real' killers! You don't just smell them you taste them. :eek:

    i feel your pain lol charlie our black lab has the same issue (as i write this he has just delivered a what my daughter calls "serious gas" in the room) i had fed charlie on bagged food until we got frankie and she was on the Barf (raw) diet and we have introduced him to the raw food so far it has reduced the gas issue fingers crossed once hes fully on it we will be smelling roses not "serious gas"
