An odd thing

This morning the BH got up first to make the tea, and I’m sure any normal person would like their Better Half’s to do this occasionally – and I’m not complaining. It’s just, if I don’t get up within a minute or two of waking I stay tired for hours into the day.

Having said that, I was pleased it was him who first went into the kitchen today, because there was a BIG puddle waiting. When the BH came back to bed he told me that the dishwasher had leaked (you remember it’s a temperamental sod at the moment). But when I got up and took a look at the floor around the dishwasher it was dry, so the BH checked the ceiling, and that’s fine too.

So where did our puddle come from? My suspicions lie with the dog! The weather here at the moment is screwy beyond belief and last night when I tried to tempt him out into the wind and rain, Ryker (my dog), stuck his nose out the door then thought better and headed off for his bed instead.

I’m impressed, as my last words to him last night were, ‘If you pee on my carpet, I’ll skin you!’ It’s a wise dog who opts for the tiles. And of course if I had a sense of smell and the BH didn’t have a cold, we’d probably know for sure!

You could test with litmus paper - I'm sure it'd be alkaline, or acid, or something different to water anyway.

When it's raining, my cat Trevor will peer out of the frontdoor, turn up his nose and swish his tail in disgust and then trot to the backdoor and demand to be let out, fully expecting different weather.

Okay now you have to confess, did you ASK the dog if he did it? Come on, tell the truth! I bet you pointed your finger at the puddle and asked him if he did that. ;)

Have a great weekend!

The great puddle mystery. Can't say that I blame him... I wouldn't want to go to go outside if it was bad weather, either. lol

It is really sad when the only one with a sense of smell (the dog) refuses to rat himself out.

Poor doggie. I'd opt for warm and dry rather than wet and cold when it came to my methods of bathroom behavior. I have to side with Ryker. But then again, I'm not the one cleaning up the puddle, am I?

My dog is the same way. One day he held it all day long until 10pm that night just because it was raining outside. He is such a priss. If it is snow he loves it. He thinks the rain will make him melt.

With a name like Ryker, of course he piddled. "Number One, get over here!"

Oy, it's come to this: telling Star Trek TNG jokes. Forgive me.

Good doggy, not going on the carpet. Much harder to clean up that way!
