As the Worm Turns by Brian Rosenberger

The meaning of life is that it ends. These stories chronicle that journey, the tears, the laughter, the innards. High school hijinks gone awry; the end result of fast food franchises and forgotten river gods colliding; revenge on killer clowns from beyond; zombie death metal auditions; the exquisite dining habits of trolls; cannibal fishermen; hitmen from Hell; Satans favorite advice columnist; the carnival version of American Idol; f*%#ing dragons. All this, and bunnies too. All witnessed firsthand, more or less. These words have been reserved for you. The worms can wait. They know how it ends.

Dogs roll in many things they like the smell of to cover up their scent. The question is why would they want to do that? One theory on rolling on stinky things is that this comes from their survival element from when they were not domesticated. Dogs use to have to hunt for food and there is a tactical advantage to not smelling like a predator. The prey don't know you're coming.
