As Molly the Cockerpoo prepared to leave Battersea Dogs Home, she was presented with a surprise leaving card from all her soon-to-be ex-colleagues - a card impregnated with the bottom signature smell of all her friends.
Dogs rally to Produce Sorry You're Leaving card with all their bottom smells

No-one is commenting on your funny story. Have you considered becoming a woman?
5* for both.
Thanks for this.
I was seriously thinking of doing this for our dog Molly.
But it would mean explaining the scheme to other dog owners, and that could get awkward
Becoming a woman? Interesting idea, But it sounds like a lot of hard work.
Yes, funny, but too short even for a Nib. Expand!
Leaving collection culture is getting out of hand, says a survey of dogs who complain about having to constantly put their signature bottom smell on greetings cards, for ever more tenuous reasons.
Once, a card was only produced when a long standing member of the pack was leaving. But these days, you will see plain brown envelopes being discretely passed round the park to mark any number of events. Cards began to circulate demanding a bottom signature smell, to celebrate the birth of a colleagues' puppies, a successful de-worming and even moving into a new basket. "It's getting ridiculous now," said one Great Dane, who said she'd had to put her signature bottom smell on three documents that day. "A couple of them were bitches i barely knew."
Many dogs say it's hard to instantly 'come up with something' when the envelope is passed around and as a result the leaving card is a meaningless document, full of bland entries that barely make an impression. "You won't recognise half the signature bottom smells and they're not all that clever anyway," said Molly, a Cockerpoo, who recently left Battersea Dog's Home.
Another problem is that signs of passive aggression begin to creep in and some of the signature entries seem to have an underlying tone of menace. "When dogs talk out their arse, it's not always nice," said one Alsation, who begged not to be named.
