Post by hu-mom today.
I've been a follower of Tales and Tails for a long time. The past two posts have been about Bunny dealing with her disappointment. And it made me think about what Mack did while we were gone.
We (hu-dad and I ) were out of town for 8 days this month. A care taker was living in, taking care of Grandmother. Our dog walker was coming 2x a day to give attention and care to the 4 leggers. There were also four other 20-something humans still at the house, they were working during the day but were giving the pups attention when they were home. So there was a total of six humans at our house. Now Mack, the pug, is usually very good.
But for an unknown reason, on the fist day of her being there, he pooped, on the couch, right next to Grandmother's caretaker. Maybe he was giving her a gift? Now she wasn't real fond of the dogs to begin with and was very fastidious. Since I wasn't there, I can't say that she freaked out but I've heard the story. The only good thing is that it was Sunday and the 20-somethings weren't working that day. She found one of them and it was cleaned up quickly. Being poop the smell was worse than the clean up. (Think Tootsie Rolls) So windows were opened, etc. Thank goodness, there were no other accidents! I just wonder if she ever sat on the couch again?

Usually when we return home, the care taker gives us a run down and chats for a while. But this caretaker, couldn't leave fast enough! They usually also say, " see you next time" or something along those lines. Not a word about next time. So I guess we might not be seeing her again. These ladies are wonderful. The come into your home and take care of the elderly, which is their main job, but also manage the home while you are gone. If we didn't have these wonderful ladies, we would not be able to get away! I have to remember that not everyone loves animals like we do!
So I guess this was Mack's way of letting ME know that he was not happy with the situation. But Mack is just going to have to deal with it because we have plans for another trip or two!
