Dog Days of Summer

Ugh. Reuger is headed back to the vet today. So frustrating to not be able to get his bathroom habits regulated. Was it like this when we were homeowners and we just didn't notice? I can say that it was not like this last summer. I can also say that since June of 2009, we haven't had an issue until about 2 months ago.

It's one thing to have potty problems when I have to get up and open a door. It's entirely another when I have to put him on a leash, walk down a flight of stairs, pick up the mess, walk a block to deliver it to the doggy station, walk back, up a flight, remove leash and wash hands. What will be a 30 second adventure in 24 days, is a 10 minute adventure right now. Multiply that by his hourly emergency and we waste a lot of time during the day. No pun intended.

I love my dog. I love my dog. I love my dog. But he really needs to get a job.
