GETTING EVEN

UH! OH! When Alex saw my post yesterday, he said, "Mama, don't you talk bad about my dog..he's a good boy." I told him that I was just stating the facts. Then he said,"You know Scooter doesn't like to be embarrassed." And I said, " well, then don't let him read my blog!" (This was all in jest, by the way)

Obviously, Alex let Scooter read the blog...and Scooter showed his displeasure...during the night...in the middle of my den...on the carpet...at least a gallon.

Alex and I have been on our knees trying to wick up the 'moisture'...then start to work on the stain. Scooter has been watching quietly from the sidelines...head down...just watching us work. This is not the way I planned to start my Friday.

I told Alex long ago that nothing good would ever come from teaching a dog to read...somethings are better left in their natural state.

Scooter is under my feet, as I type. I know what he's he thinking. You don't live with 5 males for as many years as I have without learning to decipher their subtle facial expressions and body language. Men, boys, dogs...makes no difference...a Mom can just tell.

"Hey Mom, quess we are even now, huh?" "Scooter, don't talk to me in that tone of bark!"

What was Alex thinking, teaching Scooter to read? It was bound to backfire at some point.

Vinegar gets out the smell of pet urine. Canada Dry is wonderful for stains.
Happy Weekend! Blessings.

Funny...well for us to read, not for you to clean.

Love the fall look. However, I love your sunflowers and blue background also.

Ah, I know that feeling! I bought a carpet shampooer to go with my 2 poodles! I have to use it tonight before we leave in the am! Gotta love those little critters. I'm sure not letting them read the adventures of Scooter!

Poor you! Sorry to read you had "moisture" to clean up from your dog....

Since he knows how to read, maybe you could make him a sign by the door that reads "This way to the yard, just hold it until you get there!".
