The not so sweet smell of success

I had quite an important meeting at someone’s house and they have a huge dog who when he lies down takes up most of the space of the kitchen. It’s like having an armchair there!

But as the conversation went on this really foul smell started emanating from the dog, I couldn’t say anything but everyone must have been aware of it and then it would dissipate before happening again.

You can imagine if a dog that size lets go, it’s huge! It happened enough times to wonder when someone was going to do something about it and eventually, the wife opened the doors to the garden but it was cool so they couldn’t leave them open so they let the dog back in and he did it all over again!

It was quite a challenge to concentrate with all that going on and needless to say, I tried to get through the meeting as swiftly as possible!
