It is every new puppy parent's nightmare that they will get loose in your home and completely destroy it while you are not home or turn your back for a moment. In this Tail Tail you will read about our experience with this fear last night!
So, We pen Rumley in the bathroom at night and when We leave for work so it gives him more space than the kennel due to his lack of bladder control yet. Yesterday, upon opening the front door We were greeted by Mr Rumley excited to see us... Um.. how long was he out for crossed our minds for one but anyone who has been a new puppy parent (espessially to a pyrenees/giant breed) will understand the horrible feeling that washed over us after the shock of him being out quickly wore off. We were scared to even move at this point. I opened the front door and let him outside to go potty, if he still had to that is, and We proceeded up the stairs to see what disaster Our sweet boy had waiting for us.. first We found a small little potty spot at the top of the stairs and then noticed a dribbled trail that led to another small potty spot. OK, first thing found. I grabbed the flashlight to check the wood floors for any possible accidents. None. Phew! OK. It's safe to let Stella out now to go out with him while We finish scouring the house for Rumley disasters. Living room, all clear. Dining room, all clear. Is this really happening? Kitchen, all clear! OK... how is this possible. We check the bedroom, nothing. The.puppy gate, not a baby gate but a gate made for dogs, is still standing in the bathroom doorway. Which means he jumped it. Inside the bathroom was shredded toilet paper everywhere. That was it. How is it possible that he makes less of a mess out alone than when We are home with him. Thankfully everything was OK but We are all still baffled by last nights events.
The stories on this blog are actual events that I hope you can get as good of a laugh from as I have.
