I am not sure what is up with him lately…..he is going to be 3 in September and we are way beyond the days of having accidents in the house…..but something has gotten into him these last couple of weeks.
We have had a tremendous amount of thunderstorms pass through, which he hates…….before I even realize we are getting a storm, he is already running up the stairs to hide under our bed, then we cannot get him to go outside to go to the bathroom because he is scared. I do think that is part of the problem, but it is just happening way to frequently.
I would say he was mad at us for leaving him when we went to Las Vegas, but he wasn’t even in a kennel, he stayed with my Mom and Dad……and this did start before our trip.
Our entire first floor is wood or tile, this is the only room that has wall to wall carpet….and it’s white…..so of course, that is where he picks to do his business.
You know me….OCD, queen of the clean freaks….so this just infuriates me, especially after just paying to have our carpets cleaned. A month ago, Nick got extremely sick in the middle of the night and let’s just say he didn’t make it to the bathroom and we were left with a huge vomit stain. It would not come out, so I called the professionals….I only really needed that spot cleaned upstairs because we have only been in this house a little over a year, but they said that they have a minimum charge to come out and I should take advantage of the situation and let them do another area…..guess which room was just cleaned? Looks like they might be making another house call!
We love our Rudy….I can’t imagine our life without him. We spend a lot of time with him…he is fortunate that I work from home most of the time, so he is not alone and he is not starved for attention….trust me! He is so much a part of our family…..and when they can’t tell you what is wrong,…..it is just very frustrating!
Rudy has some company in the dog house after this mornings episode……..I might be joining him……..Grandma isn’t the only one teaching little Sarah naughty things…..when I saw the stain, I said….”Son of a …….you know what” I thought I said it under my breath and Sarah was in the other room, but apparently she has impeccable hearing…..Sarah has just learned her second curse word!
