The Ugly House Guest
One who snores and eats messily and makes your kids wild and pees on your floors?
What?! Your ugly house guest doesn't pee on your floors? Well, now I'm all embarrassed.
If you've been reading Serenity Now for awhile, you know that my mom occasionally compensates me financially to care for her Evil Cat, Mr. Darcy. She compensates me out of guilt over The Catfight.
Mr. Darcy can't stay here because T is allergic to cats and also hates them, but Sadie can.
It's not that she's completely disgusting. Except that she kind of is.
I am a dog lover. Always have been.
Sadie is an odd dog in that she doesn't particularly care for humans. She spends her days following my dogs around, shedding all over my wool rooster rug, avoiding my children, and sneaking out of the kitchen to pee on my family room carpet. My sister once said Sadie resembles an anorexic ballerina because she appears to creep around on her tip toes. It's kind of creepy.
I am counting down to mom's return this weekend!
I'm not really certain how I get roped into pet sitting for my mother's neurotic animals. Maybe I got dollar signs in my eyes.
Maybe I need to invest in a carpet cleaner.
