The Great Trash Debacle of 2008

So, Shooter and I went out to dinner with some of his work friends because one of his buddies is moving back to Colombia. We drove to a great Italian restaurant about an hour from our home and had a great time with all of his co-workers. On our way home we were talking about various things (I saw my counselor/therapist today so I had lots to discuss) and I mentioned something about how it's always nice when he cleans up the kitchen and takes out the garbage like he did today. Then I catch myself...I look at him...and I asked him if he took out the garbage that had been sitting in the kitchen floor. He looks at me and at that point we realized that we were in for a nice surprise when we got home. He had forgotten to take the garbage out of the kitchen before we left...and left it for the dogs to have lots of fun with. Here is a picture of their handiwork.




As you can see from the notes, two blizzard cups had been licked clean and torn apart. Several cans of dog food had been licked clean. We had made spaghetti last week and the cans/boxes used for the sauce had been licked clean. Also, the tray the ground beef came in had been carefully worked over and the liner pad had been chewed open. UGH! Also, Shooter had put the small container of pizza sauce in there....we had pizza last night and it was so good we didn't need our usual extra sauce to dip it in. Well, that was entirely consumed. I scoured the house and fortunately, or not so fortunately, we didn't have any mass vomits all over the house. Leah, on the other hand, has one HUMONGOUS belly...and a red beard to prove she was the consumer of most of the garbage. Hopefully Morey didn't take part in much of it...we certainly can't afford for him to get his system completely out of whack. Here are the culprits.

So, from us to you....hope you have a wonderful Saturday evening....we sure did.

These pictures are too funny! I have come home to this a few times myself and they always look so proud when you catch them, "oh, hey, I made you a present (gesturing grandly) do you like it?"

Hopefully it cleaned up easily and Morey didn't get too much of it and wind up sick.

(shaking head) crazy kids!

Leah, Leah, Leah... LOL

my two do that whenever they can actually get TO the trash. Lately because of all the rain and wet snow, their favorite thing is to track mud through the house after playing outside. I generally have a pathway from the door to the couch, and the door to their water bowls...

4 days til we leave!!

I agree with Vanessa... those pictures are hilarious! I hate that feeling... the "Oh no" feeling that you left something down for your dog(s) to get into! hee hee.

hahaha! Luckily no one got sick from this. Leah had a REALLY swollen belly for a couple days but is back to normal now. Morey didn't sustain any belly issues either, thank goodness! So funny!
