#TheOrdinaryMoments – Pooch Perils

If I should ever wonder where either of my children may be, I will usually find them wherever the dog happens to reside. The pooch adores the pair of them and would follow them to the moon and back if she could.

Sitting on the sofa is no longer an individual activity, Maisy will insist upon sitting either between or on people, she is either lacking the intelligence to understand the concept of personal space or simply cannot cope without being close to us.

The kids adore the dog, I on the other hand am not quite as impressed today. Our beautiful basset decided to jump at the table, knocking my coffee all over the floor. As a result, I then proceeded to mop the kitchen, whilst the dog apparently had other ideas…

Maisy had been entertaining herself in the living room with an empty toilet roll tube. I have no idea where or how she acquired said toilet roll tube, I was more concerned with the fact that she had chewed it into smithereens and had covered my once clean, living room carpet with fragments of cardboard. It wasn’t enough that I’d had to mop the kitchen, now I had to vacuum the living room all whilst keeping an incredibly close eye on our little, hairy, horror.

The kids of course found this entire fiasco hilariously funny, what is better than a basset who rules the roost?

    Ahh that doesn’t sound fun! But it does sound like one of those things when you finally get to sit down its one to look back and smile!

    Wow she’s got so big! It’s lovely that they have such a close relationship – I can never imagine having a home without pets in it x
