As I mentioned in my last blog, my youngest daughter went to Memphis, TN with the rest of her cheer squad to perform in the 1/2 time show of the Liberty Bowl. We weren't even sure they would show the 1/2 time show on t.v., but like loyal parents we watched the 1st half of the game hoping the camera would show a glimpse of them, no such luck. Then 1/2 time came and all they were doing was talking about all of the other games being played....boring.....didn't they know there were moms waiting to see their daughters on t.v.?
Jake (our border collie/lab) had been outside for a long time. We called him in and his paws were all muddy. Now it hasn't rained and the snow is long gone, who knows where he found the mud but it looked like 1/2 our yard was on his paws. We decided he needed to be put in the tub to be cleaned up. I'm leaning over the tub giving my dog a pedicure and my dh yells, "their on, their on." I thought your kidding, here I have Jake, muddy paws and all, in a tub of water. I thought "oh well" and left the bathroom shutting the door behind me.
We didn't get to see our dd up close but we did get to see her group as a whole. I was so excited for her. Then I remembered, Jake is locked up in the bathroom. What are my chances that he would have stayed in the tub while I was gone, yup you guessed it......
We had mud every where. There was mud on the tub, there was mud on the wall, there was even mud on and in the toilet.
He was only left alone for about two minutes and I never heard a sound come from the bathroom while he was in there alone.
Watching a football game you have no interest in - 3 hours, leaving a muddy dog in a tub of water unsupervised- 2 minutes, cleaning up from leaving a muddy dog in a tub of water unsupervised - 20 minutes, watching your daughter perform on t.v. at a bowl game - worth every minute.
