The animals are in cahoots
They're trying to drive me mad, I tell you. Last night I made a ham. While it was cooling I left it on top of our chest high eat-in kitchen counter with the dogs behind the baby gate in the next room. I left the house for 2 minutes to install a car seat and when I returned, the dogs had escaped and pulled the ham onto the floor. Even the pan full of ham juice was dumped out onto the floor with dogs gnawing at it. Clever, naughty girl that she is, Teal can open the baby gate unless it's locked down. Apparently I didn't lock it all the way and so she took her opportunity to escape and then also did some impressive counter surfing to score a lovely second dinner. Then this morning I was woken by my husband to learn that there was a wet spot on the new, expensive living room rug I'd purchased less than a week ago. We presumed it was cat urine because our one cat loves to spite me if I don't let him outside or feed him on time. I'm pretty certain that the dogs actually just licked the rug in one spot that it got soaking wet. Maybe they got some of their ham juice on it? Ughhhh. And now the ham thief seems to have the most horrendously smelly, loud ham diarrhea. I've been having to let her out all day.
I love my dogs, I love my dogs, I love my dogs. Repeat.
