Firstly when it is raining double the supervision! Second when the BC from down the street comes to visit while it's raining it doubles my cleaning. Third take Batty out on lead before leaving for work and keep him indoors as much as possible to reduce the mud.
Basically the BC from down the street has come to visit this morning unbeknown to me. He clears 8 ft fences and will visit very early in the morning every once in a while. There's no regular time for it, I'll just go outdoors to two dogs instead of one! Anyway, Batty and BC were playing away in the yard getting covered in mud and drenched meanwhile I'm getting ready for work thinking Batty is just doing his usual sniff and business before coming back in.
All of a sudden I hear a large SKID followed by a THUMP followed by play whining, growling and wrestley noises. Obviously I wanted to see what was happening so I came out of the bedroom to see Batty and the BC laying in the middle of my now VERY muddy, dirty and wet dining room! So both dogs straight into the bathroom while I try to work out what to do about the dining room then I hear a very pitiful meow and look under the couch... There is the very slobbery, muddy and disgusted face of Bobby (the cat)... So I pop him in the shower cubicle so he's safe, it looks like he's been rolled on or something because he's literally covered in mud and he hates the mud!
Deciding to try to save time by bathing both dogs in my bathtub was a big mistake. I got covered in water - but both dogs are clean .
Now I have my bathroom floor and parts of the walls covered in mud, dining room about the same, I'm late for work and covered in mud and water, the cat was covered in mud...
BC has gone home and seems pretty happy with himself and Bobby and Batty are clean again yay... Now I've got to get the dining room and bathroom clean and head off to work.
Any one else have wet weather stories for me cause right now I need to laugh about this and can't see that it's funny!
