This post comes from the desk of Olive, she wanted you all to know Gus’s true colors!
Well fall has arrived here in New York very cold (did I mention I come from Georgia) and now it is also raining. Any good southern girl can appreciate a good mud pile and I am no different. Thursday it started raining and man did I love splashing in the puddles, but by midday Friday those puddles have turned muddy. This is Saturday now and the mud puddles are amazing and there is an actual lake forming outside the bathroom window for me to roll in! I am in love with the rain, mud, and puddles … the border collie however is another matter. In the morning our dad always lets us out to play while he gets ready for work but when it is raining the stupid Border Collie won’t go outside. He stands so close to the house (so he doesn’t get wet) and refuses to get his paws wet. This behavior is not only stupid but creates a huge problem for Gus… he won’t go potty. When we come back inside Gus makes it about an hour and half before he can’t hold it anymore. Let me just tell you my mom can yell! When she walks into the kitchen to find a pile of dog poo she is none to happy especially when there is a lake of pee next to it. Well of course me being the angel I am I only snicker a little while chewing on my bone. This has ended in Gus spending some quality time in his crate since mom hates cleaning up pee and poo from dogs who are to delicate to get there paws wet. Now you might be thinking poor Gus but really he brought this upon himself and an added bonus is that I get to spend more quality time with mom!
