Our dog, Sid, is a wee bit neurotic.
A bird dog by nature, he has been thrown into the job of herding four children. Which he does well. He has separation anxiety (see here) and can never decide which person to be with so he goes from place to place to check on everyone. At 10 pm he looks at Joe and sighs, and then goes to bed. Have you ever heard a dog sigh!?!?! This poor loyal pooch has lived in 6 different houses in the last 8 years and has never complained. Nor has he eaten our couch, so I assume he is pretty happy.
He does weird things though. I wish I could keep track of them and remember them, but I don't even have a finished baby book around here, so a doggy book just isn't going to happen. So hopefully sharing this here will make it stick in my mind for years to come……….
I've posted several times about our slow draining old house pipes…… we decided to start using the old baking soda – vinegar – boiling water solution on a weekly basis this week. It helps. But the great part about it, is this::
After pouring the baking soda & vinegar into the tub, we all went about our business…… and then there was scratching….. and whining……. and we all ran to the bathroom thinking the dog had been locked in, but no. He was standing in the tub scratching at the drain and whining and growling at it. He did not like the fizzy bubbly noise. He laid in there for fifteen minutes until I had to shoo him out to pour the boiling water down…. how weird is that?
The kids have decided that once a week drain cleaning will be great fun now that Sid likes it too!
