Wipe Your Paws   3 comments

Today’s WTF moment provided by … home improvements.

My parents recently closed on a new home! Helping them move and get organized has sent me on a quest to spruce things up around my own home. So I headed over to Target for some new towels and bath mats, etc., including some new things for the front porch. Yay! It never even occurred to me to ask Miss D for her opinion. You’d think dogs didn’t much notice their surroundings, but you’d be wrong. Tonight, getting ready for our “night patrols” around the neighborhood, Miss D refused to cross the threshold. WTF?

It didn’t occur to me until we returned that the front porch looked different and that’s what freaked her out. Note to self: bring iPhone on these excursions. Some things have to be videoed to be believed.

Oh, Miss D. I will love and cherish you. I will provide a safe haven for you to live out your days. I will protect you and keep you safe from many dangers. But inanimate objects? You’re on your own, kid. My back is killing me (did I mention I helped my parents move into a new home?) but it’s a lovely evening, so I pulled up a chair and decided to wait her out. But I underestimated Miss D’s neuroses. She too sat down and refused to enter the porch area. Impasse.

I don’t know how long we sat like that, but eventually Miss D got tired of sitting on cement and made tentative motions toward me, sniffing and cringing every step of the way. I don’t know why she’s so put out, I think it looks nice.

  1. Maybe she can’t read. She didn’t know what to do. I think she is dyslexic.


  2. This is so funny! Joules and Prescott are like that too, but with different things. Prescott has it worse. I DEFINITELY have to bring my phone to capture moments at any time!! 😉 You are amazingly patient- I have learned something new to do with J&P.
