In a book I just read, that's what they refer to it as.  When your dog rolls around in the grass or on the ground, happily rubbing his face all over something with a look of ecstacy on their face?  It's pate they're rubbing in.  What is pate?  Decomposition.  For some reason that I will never understand dogs like to rub the smell of rotting anything all over their fur.  It's the most disgusting thing ever, which is why I was none too happy when Husband found Theo in the yard yesterday, rubbing himself all over a decomposing lizard.  I'll spare you the details...but sufficed to say Theo will be getting no snuggles from me for a long while.  Gross.

Oh, I see, Bryson does that too and yes, disgusting, indeed!

But when I first read the title I thought you were going to tell me you had a nice fancy dinner where you dined on pâté. Ha ha! Guess I'm hungry :P

Hehe. Well in the book I read I think it was called pate because it was from the dog's point of view, and to them it is the good stuff. Hey, how'd you get all those fancy accents in there? It looks funny to me without them.

Koda does the same thing; yesterday morning on a dead worm; didn't know there was an official name for it
