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.

I think, if I had been at your house, I might have scaled the baby gates to get to a freshly-cooked ham too!

I can't be mad at her when she's all sick, but I'm sure if you could ask her she'd say she has no regrets. Tonight is our obedience class so hopefully she feels better by then.

We'd already eaten our nights serving. So ham and brocolli as planned. It's a good thing she really only had it for a minute or so. She didn't even get a quarter of it, but I think she ate all the fat. Of all 3 of the dogs, she's the only one whom got sick. Lottie is still covered in ham juice and sticky. I give her one more day before I have to hose her off and ruin it.

So you're taking away Lottie's Chanel No.5 and replacing it with the sweet smell of Lysol? Aww, you spoil-sport!
