i have given up on jazzercise...kind of. i have started a new regimen: i wake up 15 minutes earlier and take Cleo for a walk to end of Spring Creek and back. this morning she peed 3 times AND took a huge dump (which i picked up and put in my neighbors garbage tee hee). it's exercise for me and C, and is great for emptying her out!!!
as i have mentioned before, our house has smells like dog pee with glade noticeables covering up the smell. we tried everything. carpet cleaner, baking powder, arm&hammer pet odor remover...also, i have been through 4 eyeliner pencils in the last week. the damn dog loves to chew eyeliner pencils.
so our newest conquest: we bought Cleo a baby gate to lock her in the kitchen which is quite large and roomy for a tiny pup. if she pees in the kitchen, we can clean it up much easier than the carpet, not to mention my eyeliner pencils are safe. i elevated Chanel's litterbox to prevent almond roca treats for Cleo, and put all of the dog's toys, her bed and a few bones in there with her. well yesterday, i decided to test the baby gate for the first time. i put her in there so i could real quick paint my fingernails (sally hansen insta-dry...best EVER). i have to keep my fingernails painted because of the bum door-slam f-you finger...it looks like a corpse fingernail when left unpainted. so i put Cleo in the kitchen, and went around the corner to paint. i hear the dog try to scratch her way out. "ha ha," i thought, "you are stuck." and i continued painting. then i heard: she slowly and deliberately backed up and then head butted the gate at full speed, knocking it down sucessfully. HOW IS THAT REAL? i have the dumbest dog in history but she knows how to knock down a baby gate. my nails are wet (insta-dry is not THAT instant) and i try to put the gate back up, and i ended up messing up my nails. just when i start to think Cleo isn't the dumbest dog ever, i see her run for cover. this is where she went:
the shower. back to being the dumbest dog ever.
i was running late to work, so i glared at her and said, "i'll get you next time..." and she tilted her head and wagged her tail.
i got to work, went about my business feeding baby P...........and my bum fingernail falls off.
it's all Cleo's fault.
