Have you ever had to get poop off your dog's butt? I just did. Yucky, huh? LOL

Yeah, we go through this about once or twice a year. I have two beautiful little Maltese girls and their hair gets LONG! I try to keep it shaved in that area (they're not show dogs) but sometimes the hair grows faster than I realize. Then, the inevitable happens. My preferred method is to put them into the bathtub, take the shower sprayer and let the warm water soften the poop until it falls off. I'm not about to touch that stuff! Ewwwwwwww! After it's off and they're dry, I give them a shave 'back there'. Has this happened to you? If it has, how do you handle it?
