My Fluffy New White Comforter

Just when I think the boys are not going to give me any good blogging material, Thumper delivers. Enjoy. :)


This morning I was dragging. I've had a couple of nights not sleeping well and was less than chipper as I dragged myself upstairs to rouse the baseball player for his last day of school. Of course, two dogs were racing me to the top of the stairs. They beat me. It didn't take long until my wake up call was complete, and I turned to go back downstairs. This was when I learned what wakes me up FAST--the sight of Thumper, peeing on the new WHITE fluffy comforter (I had been searching for one that I liked for the last few weeks and finally found one!) on the guest bed. Yep, he hiked his leg up and christened it like a mailbox. I momentarily wondered if PetSmart might take him back....then ran for the enzymatic pee remover and started cleaning like a crazy person. I sure hope that stuff works. We have company coming Friday night, and I really don't want them to have a pee-scented bed covering. I've gotten past fretting over dog hair everywhere, but this.....this is a bit much. What the heck could he have been thinking??

So, the enzymatic cleaner is still working. The instructions said to cover it with a wet cloth and wait 24 hours. I'll know by morning whether he did any permanent damage. Meanwhile, he is spending a bit more time than usual on his "taking care of business" breaks. Maybe it's the full moon? Does that affect dogs?


  1. Oh no!! What the heck is that all about? I assume this is unusual behavior. We had trouble with Bill doing things like that for a while after he was adopted and it was because he had too much space and he was marking, after having been confined for so long. I still don't trust him when home alone since he will still do that on occasion.

    Here's hoping that your cleaner works. Geez Thumper, good thing they love ya!

  3. In the doghouse, Thumper! Did your guest smell anything funny?

    Free wifi today, happiness :)

  4. Thumper was saying "Mine, all mine...bwahaha!" Sure hope those enzymes work!
