We are convinced that in Scout's previous life, she must have been Squints from the Sandlot. You know Squints. He was the one with the thing for Wendy Peffercorn. Lotioning, Lotioning!
So what, you might ask, would bring us to this conclusion? Well, while Scout doesn't really have a thing for women, this little puppy has an extreme infatuation with lotion.
We can't figure out what it is, but when we put on lotion, she goes crazy. She immediately runs over and starts licking the lotioned skin incessantly. It doesn't matter what kind of lotion, it doesn't matter what it smells like, it doesn't matter where we put it. If we get out the lotion, Scout is all over it. This morning was a perfect example. After my shower, I was putting lotion on my legs. I try to be quiet with the lotion jar so she won't hear me, but I think she can smell it from over a mile away. As soon as I started lotioning, Scout came busting through the door and started licking my legs. Then, it's a race to put pants on so she doesn't lick all the lotion off. Then, as we were getting ready to leave for church, Mr. Frisby got out some hand lotion to put on his hands. Scout was fast asleep, but as soon as she smelled it, she was at Mr. Frisby's side, jumping up trying to reach his hands so she could lick them. We can't figure out what it is she likes about it, but we're worried it's become an addiction. Anyone know of any puppy rehab centers?
