|How can you not love this face?|
However, after her first visit this month, I almost agreed with The Guy.
Sis-in-Law left early in the morning on the first weekend, so I agreed to run and pick up Maddy when I woke up. I trundled off to the house first thing in the later part of the morning and went into the kitchen where Maddy is corralled. She took one look at me and peed on the floor.
So far, so good.
I cleaned that up, let her out to pee, and then opened the gate to the remainder of the house. I announced we were going for a car ride and she disappeared. This is a dog who once flung herself with excitement into the arms of a stranger because she thought she was going in a car.
|Contrasts: Maddy and Monty.|
Gathering the duvet, I hauled it and Maddy's overnight things to my Jeep. I went back into the house, called for the dog again, and again had to search for her. Back in the master bedroom.
It was a cycle we were doomed to repeat. I went in, she peed (this time on the sheets and then on me) and I chased her out. This time, I corralled her out the door to the vehicle before I gathered the sheets up.
Finally, I got into the car smelling of pee and barely containing my frustration. Maddy jumped onto my lap, licked my face and peed.
