YES- I mean it when I say poop.
background story in short sentences-
- Our dog is sick.
- Said dog seemed to develop some sort of diarrhea.
- THERE WAS POOP IN EVERY ROOM FOR DAYS !!
So this was over the New Year holiday. There were so many days of poop! By Tuesday we all decided it would be good for us to go “clear our heads” of the whole poop issue by going to the movies! (The movie we saw was AMAZING).
We went to the AMC and got tickets for a later showing since the one we intended to go to was sold out. So, tickets obtained, we went home.
UPON WALKING INTO OUR HOUSE WE ENTERED A POOP STORM THE LIKES OF WHICH WE HAVE NEVER SEEN.
The poor helpless dog was still were we had him on his leash (to limit wondering) and near him- A HUGE SMEAR OF POOP.
It was SMEARED – SSSMMMEEEARRRREDD- all over the living room.
And caught in the smear path was the sleeve and liner notes of one of L’s prized records! We declared it extinct right away. The sleeve and liner had been knocked to the floor by our new kitten (more on him later). And we are sort of trash can humans so we didn’t pick it up.
We all started screaming ! It was so terrible.
We thought the other dog might have smeared the poop around and so I went looking for him.
I found the dog cowering in his bed in mine and E’s bedroom. And trapping him there was NONE OTHER than our ROOMBA.
My sweet baby Roomba- brought down by a pile of shit.
(YES WE ARE NOW THOSE PEOPLE WHOSE ROOMBA DESTROYED EVERYTHING BY BEING REALLY BAD AT CLEANING POOP.)
Ok, so what we learned- aside from the obvious learning- was that we make a really great poop cleaning team. We had the living room, the roomba, the record sleeve and liner, and our souls- cleaned up in record time. (well not the roomba really).
I think that stuff like this could really turn into a battle pitting, “he’s your dog its, therefore, your poop,” against, “We all live here.”
But that is not how it happened. Sure we panicked but then we regrouped- bonded- and got it taken care of.
So if you want to see who your real fam is… let a dog poop on the floor and let a Roomba try to clean it.
