What Did You Do!?!

Poor Nicole had another canine catastrophe over at her house. She just got a puppy, Sophie, to keep Ozzie company. Well, little Sophie did a doozy. Go on over and visit Nicole's blog and see what she did. Yup! She really did do "that"! Yikes! That's right up there with Maggie taking a bite out of one of my quilts.

I was so sympathetic, but maybe a teensy weensy little tiny bit smug. Well, not smug, maybe relieved that it wasn't me this time. Maggie's been really good lately and I thought (hoped? prayed?) that the worse was behind us and we could move on. It gets a little tiring to walk into a room and automatically look around to see if anything is wrong.

This is a picture looking up my stairs. Do you see Maggie hiding? "What did you do?"

This is the type of pen that probably had fallen under Sweety's desk in the messy office from h... that we didn't know was there. That's where we think she found it, anyway.

Maggie (aka Maginator, Maggot, Maggie the Terrible) must have found it and took it downstairs. Now she has LOTS of chew toys. I once heard that you should buy them a new chew toy often so they don't get bored. Anyway, here is the pen she found afterwards. Did I tell you the carpet is new? Did I tell you I have a migraine today?

Heavy sigh................

I got out my trusty carpet spot cleaner, and VOILA!

The green stains are gone! There is a God! Thank you, Jesus (yes, He cares about carpet)! Hallelujiah!!!!!!!! Did you hear the angels singing?

This is a better picture of the product I used. Go get some now! Alway keep this stuff on hand. Once, Sweety had cut his arm and bled all over the arm of my good chair in the living room. I followed the directions and it took everything right out. I emailed them and they said that they don't advertise and count on word of mouth recommendations. I may not be Billy Mays, but I'd recommend this stuff to anyone. You can get it at the grocery store or hardware stores or you can even borrow one of my four bottles. (For our overseas blogging friends, I don't know if it's available in your country.)

I have a friend who said that she may quit blogging because she is running out of things to blog about. My advise? Get a puppy!

Well, I know those naughty little puppies are a trial, but just think of all the love they bring you!!! I miss having one around!

I love what you said about getting a puppy if you can't find nothing to blog about. It's true. Charli is three but she still keeps me on my toes. I never know what the little hooligan will do next.

I love the picture of your pup on the stairs. They sooo know when they're in trouble! My little nosey Rosie is no exception! x

I wonder if it takes out olive oil? My hubbie seems to drip olive oil on every shirt he has and nothing takes it out!

While I don't have any pets, 2 children are high maintenance enough - I'm going out to buy that carpet cleaner! thanks for the recommendation!
