Oh, how I adore our hound; she is the sweetest, cutest, most loving, furry beast I have ever met. However, being a basset hound she is genetically programmed to cause chaos and there are times when I could quite happily string her up, yesterday being one of them…
My husband and I are very rarely ‘child-free’, thus when the opportunity arises we get out and make the most of the time together.
Having been relieved of our parenting duties, we set off out to town to attend an opticians appointment and to collect the final presents for E’s upcoming birthday. Whilst traveling home we decided to have ‘tea’ (the northern version of an evening meal) at our local, which with a few pints thrown in, took an hour or so.
Upon arriving home, we walked into what I can only describe as ‘basset bedlam’. There were sheets of torn paper scattered all over the kitchen, some of which were soaking wet as our beloved basset had dragged them through her water bowl, creating what felt like soggy wallpaper, most of which was stuck firmly to the kitchen tiles.
As we are planning on updating and redecorating the kitchen over the coming year, I can only fathom that our dumb dog decided to start without us… I will certainly not be asking for any further help from the hound as her wallpaper removal skills aren’t exactly ‘up to scratch’, pardon the pun.
These, I suspect are the ‘ordinary moments’ for households with hounds… it’s a good job she’s cute!
Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
