Dog Puke

This afternoon when I got home from work, I really just wanted to crawl into bed and take a nap. I was exhausted, a little nauseous, and the bed just seemed so appealing. But what did I discover waiting there for me?

Dog barf.

Yes, it seems Scooter had a little morning sickness of his own and he had thrown up all over the bed: the sheets, the comforter, the pillows, and some of it had dribbled down the side of the frame. (And I thought puking by the side of the road was bad! At least I made it to the outdoors!)

So, instead of a nap, I had more laundry to do. But I couldn't be mad at my little Copper Top; his eyes seemed to say (in the British accent I imagine him to have), "I'm sorry I puked, Mama. I didn't mean to!" See? Don't those eyes say that? (The picture above was taken just before we went on our trip last week. I was doing laundry -- yet again! does that stuff breed in the hamper? -- and he loves to lay in the warm, fresh from the dryer clothes.)

Anyway, I didn't get my nap, and since I was up and about anyway, I decided to go for a short 3 mile run. I didn't bring the Garmin along because I knew I was gonna be slow and I didn't want to see the numbers. But no matter the time, and no matter how I felt tired at first, when I was finished with the 3 miles, I felt really good.

He does kind of look like a British gent :-). But it would be "mummy" not "mama" ;-).

Sorry he curtailed your attempts at slumbering :-(. Loves xoxo

Awww...you're going to be a great mom :)

My laundry is like that too. I have no idea how we have two loads of laundry a day with only TWO people in the house.

Wait until that baby is born!

Aww. I hate it when my pets are sick. That picture looks so sweet, though. Feel better, Scooter!

I'm sorry that you're still dealing with nausea. I keep hoping it will go away for you.

Hope for baby is feeling better.

Maybe morning sickness is contagious! Only to dogs though. Unless your huz starts barfing all the time too. Then you may have to see someone about it....
