Why do they roll in poop?

Dear Friends,

We adopted Miss Daisy about 9 months ago. She has been great. No house training problems or anything else.
Yesterday. I took her to Petsmart for a bath and a "furminator" treatment. Both of which she has has twice before with no prolems.
This morning we let her out in the (fenced) back yard as usual. When she came was obvious she had rolled in poop. I had to take her out and hose her down good. Finally got her cleaned up.

The question is WHY DID SHE DO IT? HELP. What sould we do to prevent a recurrance?

Miss Daisy and her driver, Fritz

My 11 year old, Francis, is completely blind, he can't even distinguish light from dark but if there is anything even remotely dead within a 5 mile radius he will find it and rub his head in it then roll in it. It is the bane of my existence.
Mikey, I think the dead, rotten fish was the absolutely WORST thing he ever rolled in. It took months for the smell to completely disappear.
Rae Chill, that was great.
