A Totally Unhygenic Confession

Tiny Dog is basically potty-trained. If you take her outside every 3 or 4 hours, you won't find any "gifts" on the floor. Every now and then - I mean once in a blue moon - I find a Tiny Dog turd on the carpet by the front door.

Since this is such a rare occurrence (especially if I find it at night), I consider it a treat. A sign, if you will.

A sign to take the offering that Tiny has bestowed upon me to the back porch and fling it over the fence into our neighbor's* yard.

* The non tree cutting down/can't believe that I'm not a "believer" neighbors. (BTW, the tree in that photo? It's leaning waaay over our fence now. When it falls, I'm burning it where it lands

Carmen's totally trained too, but sometimes she reminds us how it would be if she wasn't.

I don't mind. I think it is good to know these things.

Mike - Yeah, finding the occasional bit of poo makes me grateful for all the times that I don't find it.

Wow. What a totally neutral act, when all the factors are blended together.

I believe it's called "instant karma."

Chickie said...

Rich Championable - I hadn't thought of it but you're right. It is a neutral act. Just a coming together of events.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow - Instant karma! I like that!

Ok, let's find 10 acres in the middle of nowhere, we'll split it, you can live on one end and I'll live on the other... and then, only then, will we find true peace. ;)

I think you'll appreciate Mambo's iconic farting dog. Show Tiny, and watch her smile.

Yukon will howl when it is time to go out, if we don't have the dog door in. If howling doesn't work he'll paw me on the leg with one of his huge paws. Tough to ignore.

Chickie said...

suchsimplepleasures - I'm not positive, but I think you were here quite awhile back. Maybe when I had a different layout? Maybe not. My memory sucks.

I agree, here is much better than watching UFC! I can stomach about 30 seconds of that before all of the fighting looks the same.

Amy - I'm available to move any time!

Cissy Strutt - Oh, yes! The musical poot is great! Tiny liked it alot.

The Phosgene Kid - I wish Tiny did something like bark to let me know. As it is, if I see her skulking around the house, I know she's looking for a place to go and it's time to go out.

Perfect place for that "special gift" from your Tiny One....The neighbors need some of that!

themom said...

I'm all for getting even with neighbors!! mwah-ha-ha. I had a neighbor who put up a flimsy fence - so they wouldn't hear the dog bark - morons!!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Now what was it, I am supposed to crap in the house, or not crap in the house, I can never seem to remember...

Chickie said...

Lady of the Hills - I like imagining the look on NeighborHusband's face as he steps in a turd on his way outside to tie his dog to a tree all day.

themom - I'm thinking of putting a dog window in our fence so their dog can peek through and see how a dog's life could be.

The Phosgene Kid - Outside, man. Outside and on the sidewalk.

Patti said...

Hah I love it - the flinging of tiny dog turds! LOL

Chickie said...

Patti - It doesn't take much to amuse me!
