So the older female is sick today. She ate something that didn't agree and had diarrhea all over the living room. She's feeling better now.
The immediate aftermath that I didn't flush was in a trash bag, in another trash bag, that I threw on the front porch on top of the trash cans.. I thought.. I'll don gloves again, and clean the mess, after I've had a swallow of my morning tea and a bite of muffin. I get hypoglycemic easy and I figured I'd be less grumpy about it and do it better if I ate something and got woken up..
I blocked off the living room so my kid couldn't get out there and I get woken up a bit and let my other, younger female outside and then finish breakfast.
I forget about the trash bag.
I donned gloves again, cleaned the huge mess in the house with carpet shampooer 4x over with a toddler yelling at me to play the entire time, and finally remember to go outside to put trash in trashcan. MESS all over front porch.. Poopy paper towels and a very dirty LARGE hairy now stinky poopy dog. I cursed for the first time in a while. I have a swear jar I owe money to now.
Now there's another mess to clean and a dog to somehow give at bath to that doesn't fit in the bathtubs and it's only 40 degrees outside (she's comfty, she's a Saint and they can go in the barn if they need to). GREAT!
I thought in my morning haze.. and I guess lack of being aware of just how gross dogs are.. Poopy paper towels = safe from dog tearing/destroying.
Why on earth would the dog get into THAT?
And, tips please on bathing a 200 pound dog outdoors in the cold would be nice. Could I somehow siphon hot water to our barn or something? Should I call my SO? I don't want to bug him at work over this.
And, yes, I will laugh about this later but right now it's not funny..
