Do you remember a few posts ago I showed you my latest crochet project that I was working on? This one…
Well thanks to these little shits…
That project ended up all over my back yard along with 3 balls of brand new wool!! So what happened….
We have a chihuahua who is obviously an inside dog, she has worked out how to open the sliding glass doors and get out when she needs to, even though we have had a doggy door put in the front door. The only way she can’t get in or out is if the screen doors get closed as well. Her escape artistry is a real pain because if the kids or hubby or even me, forget to close the screen she gets out and leaves the door open, which is not a great idea on a rural property, with snakes etc.
I had raced into town to grab dog food one afternoon and forgot to lock the pups back in their pen, I thought I wouldnt be long and they would be ok, hubby was on farm and due home any time and I wouldn’t be long anyway. Weeeeeeell my son forgot the shut the screen door, the chihuahua got out, leaving a large enough gap for the pups to get in!! As I walked up the back path I could see them all running into the house and as I got closer to the back door I could see my wool all over the back yard in a gridded pattern from where they had been playing catch with it, and then I looked inside and they were all over the couch jumping on it like a pack of kids playing on a trampoline!! I was SO angry and there was yelling, pups running through the house, more yelling, hubby got home, and between my son, myself and my hubby we got them out. Then was the task of unravelling the wool from around my fruit trees, the clothesline the fire pit and the back patio, it was bloody everywhere. All the squares I had done were all over the back yard and everything had to be thrown in the bin, what a bloody waste.
I guess the thing is though, that it could have been much worse, they could have literally trashed the house, they are big pups, the house is small, and they could have ripped the bin apart, got into my bird and guinea pig but they didnt they just played on the cough and ruined my wool. So at the end of the day, even though that was super stressful it could have been much much worse!
So here is the new project!
