Golden afternoon
by docsmartypants

Today Serif let another dog pee on her. There’s really no nice way to lead up to that, so I figured I’d just start with it. And we’re not talking about accidentally encountering a little bit of pee—oh no!—the dog, a medium-sized fellow who lives in our building, was getting annoyed with Serif’s youthful exuberance and so he just decided to let loose while Serif was standing under him.

Larry and the other dog’s owner and I all stared in equal parts shock, amusement, and horror as the scene unfolded in our backyard. And Serif didn’t run off. She didn’t even try to move out of the way. She just stood there, directly in the line of fire. Really the only part of the whole incident that bothered her was when we hosed her down afterward and then shampooed her once we’d gone back inside.

"I have issues."

I’m not really sure what this says about our dog. Except that she’d probably be very popular on certain communities online.

Aaaaaaaaand I just this second had to stop in the middle of writing this to chase Serif around the condo because I looked up and she had a big piece of cat poop hanging out of her mouth. The moment went something like this:

Me: “Hey Serif! What’s that you’ve got—oh! Is that..? Oh. OH GOOD GOD NO!” I jump up from the couch and Serif runs off with her new treat. I chase her through the dining room yelling, “Serif! No!” I chase her through the kitchen and into the spare room where Larry is on his computer. “I think she has cat poo,” I say, waving my hands helplessly. Larry looks down, agrees, and attempts to grab the dog. Serif wriggles out of his grasp, runs through my legs, and we all go running back through the rooms of the condo, Serif losing bits of the poo along the way and finally eating the last bit she’s held onto just as Larry reaches her. It’s like the Keystone Cops in here. But with more cat poop.

Clearly the cat box will need a new location. And our dog will need a breath mint.

"Plastic bags are neat, but they're not as good as cat poo! Haha! Catch me if you can!"

    Oh, and what world does Larry have you living in? It’s still only the 13th, and I *know* you are in the same time zone I am.

    Clearly you don’t know me AT ALL if you think that dog’s mouth is getting anywhere NEAR mine after that.

    And that is an interesting point about the time stamp stuff. I’ll have to have a look at the WordPress settings.

    No vice is so foul that it can’t be adorable when done by a cute puppy. Enjoy the gift of great writing material. This might be the next “Marley and Me”. At least we had a great laugh over it!

    Yes, Mom, because nothing is more heartwarming than a dog with some poo hanging out of her mouth. I posted more photos today to remind everyone why we look past these gross incidents. Also, you should know that every single lady at the vet’s office goes completely nuts when we bring Serif in. They think she is the cutest thing ever and give her tons of kisses. So there’s your proud grandparent moment for the day.

    I laughed at this entry until I cried. Sorry. But I did. 😉
