I saw a post on Facebook, it said, “Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.” It made me laugh. At least until Mother Nature, that drunk ole’ whore, changed her mind again and dumped a foot of snow on us this past Tuesday.
Do you have any idea where you put a foot of snow? To say potty-ing space is at a premium right now, isn’t an exaggeration.
Yes, we can clear areas for the dogs in the yard, but they’ve gotten used to doing their business on our walks. And my neighbors, for some odd reason, aren’t clearing spots for dogs to potty.
The first couple of walks are okay, because people haven’t cleared their driveways, and there’s snow at the ends, but after a couple of days or so, the pavement is bare and the poor dogs are desperately seeking a flat space to go.
The other day Sampson squeezed himself into a 3′ x 3′ space that had been cleared around a mailbox. You gotta feel bad for an 87 pound dog, so desperate for grass that he’d wrap himself around a pole just to poop.
A few weeks back, Delilah stood on her hind legs, took a step up the snowbank and peed on it.
Friday, I moved her across the street to avoid a pedestrian coming up behind me. She caught me off guard when she just kept going, and went up on the snowbank. She went as far as she could, then she pooped. I literally had to sit ON the snowbank to be able to reach it for clean up.
As more and more of the snow melts from the pavement, the dogs are becoming adventurous. Even Sampson had to throw his hat in the ring.
Yup, it’s been a laugh a minute this week. What did your dogs do this week to make you laugh or smile?
Also….Happy Birthday ‘T”, hope you have an amazing day!
