Thank you Knitty for [temporarily] renaming our dachshund Shag. That made me laugh.
Every morning Pooldad lets the pups out in the back yard for their morning business. They usually split up and go to opposite corners to potty. But. . .since it is our house and Pooldad had 10 minutes to leave for work, this morning Scooby followed Spot.
While Spot [the girl dog] was squatting Scooby [the boy dog] lifted his leg right over top of his little sister and well. . .relieved himself on top of her. Head to toe.
She shook, but um. . .that wasn't going to cut it. Pooldad grabbed a towel, picked up Spot and knowing he was cutting it close decided not to take her upstairs to the bathroom and the bathtub for a quick bath. It is 31 stairs up to the bathrooms as opposed to 5 steps to the laundry room. I do not blame him.
Noooo. He carried her into the laundry room and started the washing machine. He glanced on the shelves and saw powdered laundry detergent, liquid fabric softner and carpet cleaner.
Yep. He chose the carpet cleaner. After getting Spotty sufficiently wet in the washing machine, he soaped her up, rinsed her off and towel dried her. [No he didn't turn the spin cycle on, he just held her under the water. We don't have a wash sink in our laundry room.] She actually smells pretty good.
I laughed so hard when he told me this story. It is just what we do I guess. And he didn't want to be late to work or send her upstairs pee soaked. What a good guy.
Okay, that's my story. I am still feeling the effects of last weekend, so it was short today.
I hope you all have a nice, relaxing and happy weekend. I am back to bed for the foreseeable future. [I love my bed.] See ya' next week!
