This one's for the moms.

Ike's mom here: Ike made a beautiful tribute to me yesterday that made my heart glow. I love him so very much that I often dream about him and have nightmares that something happens to him. But today - I'm looking for a little support here - I want to strangle my four-legged friends! Ike woke me up (I'm off on Mondays and like to sleep in a lot) by getting in and out of bed repeatedly. That was a little annoying, but he's a dog, and my baby so I live with it. I finally got up around 10 to find a dry pee puddle in the kitchen - again, he's a Boston terrier, and I live with it. I make my cup o joe and am drinking it when I hear Ike chewing and go to investigate and find the remainder of a turd and a pool of pee by the door! Ok, I know this one is my fault - I should have taken him out before the coffee, but he didn't even ask, and he usually asks! Then I go into the bathroom to turn off the dripping faucet because Odin will only drink running water, and I find the sink full of engorged bits of cat litter from Odin's feet. As I type this, it sounds really petty, but come on critters! Give me a break once in a while! Right now, Ike is curled into an adorable little ball with his poop encrused tongue resting on a throw blanked and the cats are giving me a wide berth. I am off to the hardware store because someone (me) was scrubbing out the lime scale in the toilet bowl yesterday with a pumice stone - which really does work great - and got distracted by the hole in her glove, which was really gross, and flushed the pumice stone which, of course, got stuck in the s-curve. I think that's the real reason for the grrrrrreat mood today. So, critter moms, we all go through this. Does anyone else have these days?

ALL THE TIME!!! And I have only 1 critter! I'm so happy to hear that Ruby isn't the only BT to occasionally just pee in the kitchen because she can...most of the time this happens right after we come in from being outside. I think she does it just to annoy me - LOL.

I hope you have a better Monday...

Ike, my ma ape is nodding knowingly and I don't know why because we are angels. Although she is easily distracted and would probably flush herself down the toilet if she wasn't so chub.

I hope your mom has a better day and gives you lots of snacks so you don't have to pee in the kitchen anymore.

Murphy's Mama here: I can totally relate. With 4 dogs & 3 cats, odds are that I gotta clean up poops, pees, or pukes from at least one of them every day.
But dammit, I'm a sucker for those big brown eyes!
