I think by now everyone knows I have 3 Border Collies. Well, today I am puppy-sitting for my youngest daughter's young (mmmm, dog, female, young, energetic, no discernible breed but smart as a whip) "lady." She has lovely manners when she is by herself and mostly mine are pretty good. But today? Oh deary me. Chaos. To top it off, we had snow/rain overnight and if I turf them out to wear off the excess energy, I'll have 4 muddy dogs to cope with~ But on the positive side, she'll only be here until about my bedtime, much earlier than my kids'! I bet everyone will sleep well tonight. :P

Hehe, once had a cat that used to sleep in the bedroom with us at night and if it needed to be let outside, it would leap up onto the top of the wardrobe and dive bomb me in the middle of the night, can you imagine it!!! Loved that cat, but not it's midnight antics. Also used to bring us presents home, I don't mean mice or rats, but doughnuts, cakes etc, I think the cat was raiding somebody elses kitchen, lol.

Big smiles, lots of fond memories of that cat!!!

Hi Jeannie

These animals do keep us on our toes, don't they?

We have 2 dogs whom we love very much, but they do tend to turn the place into a bit of a hairy tip!! :(

I'm a bit mean and when they come in from their walks wet and muddy I'm afraid they get the hosepipe on them (my Lab has sussed this out and does a bolt when he sees me approaching him with it! ;)) Then the house smells of wet dog whilst they're drying out and hogging the sofa. :rolleyes:

I rather foolishly gave them a lovely meaty raw bone each from my butcher which they really enjoyed; sadly their tummies didn't because we woke up next morning to half a dozen little piles of sick :sick2: dotted around the place.....big mistake!!! ;) :lol:

Jeannie, I'm replying to this thread only because I laugh so hard every time I see the title, "Complete and Utter Chaos". I think I've had those days, those weeks, those years. It's a topic title I'm sure we can all relate to, now and then!
Warm Hugs,
