Rain in our house means no walk.
No walks = two VERY energetic pups.
For the past 3 days in Sydney it has rained non-stop day to night. Unfortunately this also means no walks for our boys (esp since Gus HATES getting his feet wet). While we’ve taken them out the front of our town house to a patch of bark garden to relieve themselves (in case they haven’t gone by themselves in the backyard), the really haven’t had a decent walk or run.
I now understand why some silly people surrender dogs for being too ‘energetic’ and destroying things in the house – but fail to realise that this is what dogs do without proper exercise.
First – we lost an Ikea Catalogue (that was being used as a door stop). Fairly understandable. Ikea Catalogues don’t make great door stops, as they make better ‘rip and tear’ toys.
Second – very muddy floors due to muddy outside paws. Also understandable.
Leaving the house for an hour and having the dogs rat through the garbage to pull out the baking paper from the previous nights chicken roast dinner – scattering it ALL over the kitchen and carpet – tearing it to shreds and putting grease and fat all over the floors?….. ….. No words describe that scenario.
I’ll just wait for the sunny days.
