rotating pee smells
We did that for the dog last night. (No, we didn't her put in a pool. Pay attention.) My friend walked her black lab over to pick up her kid from The Birthday Party From Hell and we put him in the back yard. My dog was in her kennel on account of growling at The Birthday Guests From Hell (who actually were the ones who belonged on the kennel).
We let our dog out when it was all over.
Our yard is pretty big. Not postage stamp sized like most of the yards in Stepford, but not envelope sized either...well, maybe the check-sized envelope sized that no one uses anymore because no one uses checks anymore. Yes, I know envelope sizes are numbered. No, I'm no going to google it.
In other news, my daughter is finished turning eleven after two weeks and life can go back to its regularly scheduled chaos. Just in time for standardized testing.
