So last night (or shall i say early this morning) i was having a hard time trying to fall asleep so i stayed up with Colin for a bit until i was tired. (i was wide awake till about 3am) Well around 3, i let the dogs outside to use the restroom before bed. We have 3 at the momnet- Fosters, Digger, and Brownie. Brownie is just not working out with us (we tried to take him and digger both- one of Colins friends was rehoming them so we wanted to give them a shot- Fosters has REALLY bonded with Digger so we are keeping him (and changing his name) Brownie is going to the shelter tomorrow to be placed up for adoption. (The good news is- since i just got the job there- i will be there to check on him every day and make sure he gets an awesome home) Well last night when i let the dogs out- I came back to the door to let them in after a few mintues. I called them - and only Digger and Fosters came. I wated a few more minutes and called for Brownie again -no dog So i went outside (keep in mind it was 3am and i was in my nightie) with a flashlight looking for him in the backyard. I looked EVERYWHERE and couldn't find him. Then i ran in the house and got Colin to help me. We scoured the backyard with flashlights (our animals are indoors only, the backyard is fenced in when they go to the bathroom). We found a spot in the fence that had been broken- Brownie had broken off a wooden part of the fence and went straight through into our neighbors backyard The little devil! He ran all the way on the other side of her fence and woulndn't come when we called him. So at 3 am Colin "broke into" our neighbors backyard to get the darn dog He went through her fence quietly (trying not to wake them up) and got Brownie. As soon as we got Brownie back in he house- i went into the bedroom to get ready for bed. When i did i stepped in something wet! Dog pee! Gurrrrrrr! It was definitely Digger's handiwork! Fosters doesn't mark things (and was asleep on the couch) and we had just brought brownie back in. So at 3 am- i had to take the comfortor off, the bed ruffle and clean the floor! Uhhh to make matters worse- Colin sprayed Vinegar EVERYWHERE in the bedroom to clean it!!! He forgot the scent makes me sick! The smell of urin/vinegar was NOT plesant- so i being sleepy reached for my Bath & Body Works room deoderizer (now that stuff is STRONG- one spray lasts 2 hours) me being sleepy i wasn't thinking- i used 4 sprays My lord i thought i was gonna die! The room smelled like pee, vinegar, and cherry orchid! I had an ashtma attack from the lovely "aromas" and could bairly breath all night. Not to mention -there was no comfortor on our bed because Digger peed on the side of it - so all we had were blankets- Colin turned the fan on high to get the scents out of the room -so i FROZE last night. Did i mention i only got 3 hours of sleep before work? So yea- WHO WANTS SOME DOGS?????????
