I REALLY wanted to show you the scene of the crime so you could understand the shock and horror we’ve experienced but then I decided I couldn’t do that to you. You’re a nice person and you don’t deserve that.
When we first brought Samster home from the hospital Lucy had some jealousy issues, we noticed some chewed up diapers & pacis whenever we’d come home but over time & extra belly rubs that eventually went away. Or so we thought…
Monday was one of those long hard days when you find yourself counting down the hours until bedtime even though it’s only 2pm. I had pushed Sam to run 3 errands with me instead of adhering to her usual 2 errand limit and was quickly regretting it as she squawked at unnaturally high octaves down the aisles of Target. We finally got home and I was so relieved to be carrying her upstairs for naptime, but when I turned the corner to go into her nursery I saw something on the floor, it was something white and fuzzy, almost like a cotton ball. Then I saw another one, and that lead me to a trail of white fuzz right into my bedroom, then the fuzzballs started turning into strips of white with tinges of brown, and then I noticed one of them had Winnie the Pooh on it. Then there it was…
A COMPLETELY SHREDDED POOPY DIAPER! AGH! All over my bedroom!
It was EVERYWHERE! Poo and Pooh both shredded & ground into the floor, ughhhhhhhhhh.
Stupid dog. Stupid stupid stupid dog!
Do you ever walk into a situation like this and quickly assess that you can’t handle it at the moment so you calmly turn around and completely ignore it? That’s what I had to do. I left the room, shut the door and didn’t go back in until hours later when P got home and I heard him walk in and shout some choice expletives from upstairs.
Does anyone else have a dog that does this? Lucy isn’t a big fan of Sam but I can’t imagine her ever hurting her. On the other hand our other dog Parker LOVES Sam, he follows her everywhere, lets her pull on his ears and is constantly giving her kisses. (although kissing Sam could constitute as a meal by all the crumbs in her neck)
I don’t know what to do about it, we scrubbed the carpet and then gave it a good coat of Lysol. Other than that I guess I’ll just be better about where I leave diapers. I know I should spend more time with Lu but that’s probably the hardest thing you could ask me for…my time.
