puppies are a pain…

Posted: April 3, 2011 at 6:44 pm

oh, not quite right…all dogs are a pain…shit… ALL ANIMALS IN GENERAL are a pain…yes! i like that best.

mystic ate skunk cabbage today which apparently causes mouth, esophageal and stomach ulcers. it took me a couple of tries to get hold of one of our vets but luckily one was able to take my sunday afternoon emergency call. i am to give liquid sulcrate three times today and they will check her out in the morning when she goes in for her spay.

sherlock ripped to shreds about twenty brand new black garbage bags…that was quite a feat cuz we don’t even keep garbage bags in his area.

just a heads up to everyone…any kind of plastic bag can be deadly to a dog (especially a moron puppy like sherlock)…if they stick their heads inside them, they can suffocate and if they try to eat them..they can lodge in the airway and suffocate them too or they can block the GI tract and that can kill them ….also…dogs have died from potato chip bags and the bags inside of cereal boxes too! dogs and any kind of bags are a REALLY bad combination. this would be why we store our garbage bags on the top shelf inside the hall of the back cat rooms (most cats aren’t so stupid!)

the barn guys were pretty good at bedtime…each group was perfectly positioned for me to sneak on in, shut the gates and only have to deal with one group at a time.

jenn and i saw dixie today and gave her a walk. jenn got some photo’s for me for the chapter i am currently working on for dixie’s book (the chapter title is “dixie in the mirror!”)

ok..i am bagged today…andy and tyke kept me awake way too late last night taking turns at barking non stop. at midnight i finally went flying out of bed and pointed a deadly finger in each of their directions and yelled…YOU TWO! SHUT UP NOW!!! as i was walking back to bed in the dark and my bare feet..i stepped right in a pile of shit and then i really lost it…as i hobbled over to turn the light on so i could see what was where under my feet, i continued yelling at all of them…

GOD DAMN FUCKING DOGS! YOU GUYS DON”T HAVE TO GO TO WORK TO PAY THE GOD DAMN MORTGAGE!!! ALL YOU DO IS FREAKING LAY AROUND AND MAKE GOD DAMN MESSES EVERYWHERE AND I AM GOD DAMN SICK OF IT!!! I HAVE A RIGHT TO SLEEP BEFORE I HAVE TO GO TO WORK, GOD DAMN IT!!!!

once i turned the light on..there were 20 sets of very round eyes all staring at me silently from their beds. i slammed out of my room and went and washed my foot, then took 2 tylenol and went back to bed.

there was not one single peep out of one single dog for the rest of the night..it was the quietest night i can remember for a very long time.

i don’t lose my temper very often, but when i do even the dumbest and deafest dogs pay very close attention.

Tyke is sir-barks-alot

    I can’t tell you how much I love your blog. You stepping in the poop just threw me into fits of laughter. I have done the same thing with only two dogs in the house. Thank you for all you do!

  • Linda says

  • amy says

    I’m sorry, I had to giggle too πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the heads up on plastic bags. Pup was just about to destroy one here in the office. One more thing to put on the pup house proofing list. As well as skunk cabbage apparently πŸ™ Sorry to hear about Mystic’s adventure.

    When did Mystic get into the skunk cabbage? She had been playing with Belle (Ahley’s dog) for a few hours in the front yard having a wonderful time, and was having a bath when I left at 1pm. I hope she’s ok for her spaying in the am. Also, sorry about the garbage bags. I didn’t see any in the laundry area when I left, but obviously we left some near enough for Sherlock to reach? Puppies are a pain! I got a kick out of Tyke’s laryngitis today, and Minnie is so sweeet. Also, did Angus get a new home today?

    oh, how many times this has happened to me…

    they need a good roaring every now and then to remind them who the Alpha is.

    Carol, with all the commotion going on yesterday there’s no way I could get some alone time with you to discuss your blog entry of some project thingy you thought might suit me. Also I sent an email rather than blog comment last week about a potential supplement situation. Did you get a chance to read it? Does it sound like something worth pursuing.
    Also wanted to discuss the what big yard/pasture chores were going to hit the Honey-Do list soon so we could try to set aside some vacation days to assist.
    Also, Jenn and Carol, will Weekend Warriors be required on the Good Friday stat holiday – April 22nd? Carol you can always get me at my email addresses:
    bunnyhorne@shaw.ca
    bhorne@costco.com

    BAHAHA! I love it! I’ve stepped in pee, poo, barf, etc. And have also had my share of 2 am barking wake-up calls. Hilarious!

  • Zoe says

    Sugar was barking all night too! Woke me up at 2 and 4… usually she’s trying to tell me something but I fed her, gave her water, peed her… and still barking non stop… she’s become much more talkative I think I spoil her too much and she’s becoming demanding! Hehe… oh and Carol just a heads up I’m starting to get low on insulin again if I can grab some on the weekend.. Thank you!! πŸ™‚
