      Words you don't want to hear...

      "Did you see the throw up on the rug?"

      When my husband called from work to say good morning, this is how he opened the convo. He gets up before I did and he saw it because it was right near the seat where he sits to pet them in the morning and they wouldn't come over to him. It is a dark-colored, patterned rug so, no, I hadn't seen it. In the meantime, I've had the dogs outside a couple of times, fed them breakfast, given them some scrambled eggs, let them chew their rawhide bones for a little bit. He saw it and said he left it there without telling me until a few hours later because, "I thought you might want to change what you feed them this morning." Sigh...

      Any other examples out there of things you've been told about your dogs that weren't exactly helpful? Just to make me feel a little better...

      Well, Jules was losing his bowels for a while there. My husband one time said to my 3 yr old "did Jules nugget on the carpet again?" So that was it. The next day my kid gets up and we hear "JULES NUGGET ON THE CARPET!!" *sigh* poor dog.

      "What's THIS?" Said by OH to me as he held a roundworm in a paper towel up for me to see. It was helpful though.

      hmmmm. i recall on more than one occasion being told sometime during the later evening that "oh, i fed the dogs when i got home, figured you were going to be home later" but of course no mention of that was made during me preparing them their dinner and feeding them when i got home an hour or so earlier.....*sigh* Of course, the dogs had behaved exactly as normal and pretended that they were near death from starvation when i walked in the door!

      Important note: Thor eats a 5 am and 5 pm on the nose. Rarely off schedule. Whoever is home with him at meal time feeds him, and if both of us are around we confirm with one another before feeding him.

      Two nights ago at 6 pm:

      Husband: I fed the dog.
      Me: Wait, when?
      Husband: Just now.
      Me: I've been home with him all day. I fed him at 5 like we always do. You just fed him a second time?
      Husband: He looked hungry. I thought you forgot.
      Me: HE'S A LAB. HE ALWAYS LOOKS HUNGRY.

      "We aren't going to do anything different. He's just getting older and we have to accept that" after he injured himself. Getting a 2nd opinion & using water therapy.

      😂😂😂😂 Sage has tricked people into overfeeding him so many times!

      DH: Somebody barfed on the rug.
      Me: UGH! Did it leave a stain?
      DH: Uh, I don't know. I left it for you in case you wanted to check it out, you know, for "problems".

      ^^^^^this has to be the #1 best excuse, because, hey, lets face it, we DO inspect barf/poop/etc when we are cleaning up precisely for that reason!
