I don’t get dust bunnies, nor dust kittens, I get dust buffaloes!
They congregate in the corners, hide under the sofa, the chest of drawers, and lurk under the bed, but the worst is when they creep into the kitchen and …
Well, you know what I mean. Now there are jokes about your food not tasting right without the cat or dog hair in it, but really? I don’t find them humorous. So, I have banished the dogs from the kitchen, at least during mealtimes, and the looks I get are pathetic.
Buddy, “Look mom, I’m being such a good dog! Can I come in now?”
Me, “No, sorry boy, I’m making dinner.”
Later, after dinner…
I ask you, “Is he not pathetic looking?” It is an hour and a half later and he hasn’t moved, “Good boy!” I tell him.
And the very next morning…
“Aw, Mom! We’re being really good, and the morning sun feels so nice…”
And what can I say? Sighing softly to myself, not a thing.
Instead, I head for the vacuum cleaner.
Do you have rules and limits for your pets?
