What a day. I was fine - I got to visit with Buffy the Mane Slayer and now have gorgeous tresses. When I got home Devoted Spouse was outside with manly man power tools cutting wood for chair seats for church. Fun. He did 16. Ouch. I thought I would be nice and feed the Golden Destroyer and take her outside. I did not use her leash. She found the closest dead thing (generically referred to as Moose Poop) and rolled in it. It was black and greasy and gooey and she stunk to high heaven. I quickly blocked off the house - no access to any furniture or the bedrooms. Then I tried to spray her with Doggie Smell Good - fat lotta good that did. I had an early evening appointment. When I came home, up to the shower the whole family went to scrub EmmaLou but we couldn't find the doggie shampoo. I searched high and low repeatedly. Finally I found it and much to my dismay I found something else along with the shampoo. I found that my favorite appliance in the kitchen...my 190 degee instant hot water dispenser had rusted out the bottom and the cupboard wall next to it (under the kitchen sink) was warped meaning it had definitely leaked sometime in the past. So maybe EmmaLou rolling in moose poop was a good thing? All I know is Wednesday Devoted Spouse will be going to the Big Orange Box of Toys to find a new instant hot water dispenser for mama so she can have her cups of tea when she desires. See all that dark stuff on bottom of the white box in the picture? The white box is the instant hot water heater and all that gook is not a good sign. That's where it has rusted out. Ruh-roh. Oh crap on a crutch!
