Natural Disaster

January 22, 2009

I don't even want to tell you what happens when a three-year-old decides to feed an entire plate of tater-tots and corn to a greyhound with moderate to severe stomach issues.

Let's just say it involves a freezing cold husband and combinations of words that I've never really heard before.

Oh, and it covers the surface area of Orange County California. Approximately.

I'm sending this dog to boarding school.

We've had a similar "natural disaster" at our house, only ours involved three kids, 12 blankets, 3 stuffed animals, 3 pairs of shoes,a wall, several portions of carpet, the surface area of a mission style bunkbed, and probably the same combination of words.

All I can say is...when you're blogging about it, don't ever do a google image search of the word "vomit". Stick to nicer pictures like washing machines.

I totally feel for your dog. I had a similar experience after eating at a dirty Ethiopian place the other night.

Your last line surprised me! I was expecting "I am sending this KID to boarding school!" ;)

I am with Carrie. I don't think its the dog's fault!

Mmmm, that doesn't sound pretty at all. (Also I have to say that when I was writing my last post about Ella's new found booger eating talent I was thinking...of all the people I know...Amy will be SO proud! :)

We have a dog with a troubled tummy too. My children don't seem to make the connection though and continue to feed her from their plates while I scream and hop up and down and pull my hair.

Okay, I don't do exactly that...

But I kind of do.

Sure hope James wasn't mad at you and Jared for something. It seems he might have found the ultimate passive aggressive tactic.

Some commenters are suggesting that it's the kid who should be sent packing, not the dog.

I do not intend to weigh in on that issue because that is entirely your decision.

But I will be so bold as to say this:

If you DO decide to board the kid, for God's sake, make sure he has had all of his shots! There is nothing more heart-breaking than a three-year-old with kennel cough.

Unless it's a greyhound who forgets his lines at the Christmas play and ruins it for the whole class.

When our pug was small and unfortunately had a fondness for ingesting her own feces... my husband decided to pour hot sauce on the poop and let her go at it. (Yeah, cause eating hot sauce covered poop will teach her a lesson?!) The only lesson he learned was that the dog fully understood "paper training."

Husband was studying for flight school, aerial maps spread out all over the floor... covered in liquid poo...
