I have been dog sitting for my friends who went on a motorcycle trip from Chicago to California for a cancer fund raiser. I offered to sit for their yorkshire terrier for the three weeks. Big mistake, but they are great friends and the very nicest people. I am the one that showed them a picture of this terrier that came from an alert that it needed to be adopted, they immediately fell in love with her and made her a part of their family. I was so excited that I was a part of them giving Dixie a home. She told me she didn't think she'd be able to adopt her because they were going on this trip. I knew she wanted her so I offered, plus they had waited to find a yorkie and would be great dog parents to a dog. He's retired and home during the day, both are very loving, and they have a nice fenced in yard for her to play in. I love dogs so, it was a win win for everyone. They will be back on the 25th. They left on the third. It has been an absolute nightmare. My good natured Broady is extremely irritated with her yapping. She feels a train coming two miles down the road and it sets her off before the train gets anywhere close to the house. I got a crate for her so that I could give Broady some alone time, so he wouldn't get jealous. Okay she gets mad, anxious and deficates in the crate. What a stinking mess. I am dry heaving and vomiting while trying to clean that one up, all the while difficult child is laughing hysterically between bouts of gagging. Disgusting. Everytime she gets excited about something she urinates. She left urine on my bed this morning. It's only a small amount but I don't know how to get it out of my mattress. Any ideas???? It smells. I keep having these dreams that they come home early and get this dog. They really have become attached to Dixie. I would like to stick a large tennis ball in her mouth to keep her from yipping. I love dogs but this one has gotten on my last nerves. Still I am kind and rub it's belly and make it feel welcome, but omg, can't take much more. Thank the Lord I have hardwood and linoleum floors, or I would have one smelling house. I will feel good next week when I have made it thru the three weeks for my friend, right now I am livid that the dog ****** in my bed. YUCK, YUCK, YUCK. I just needed to vent and maybe get some ideas on what to do with the pee odor in my bed.
