The day didn’t start well with Rick throwing up on the bedroom carpet. He loves chewing on his pig’s ear but had swallowed a big chunk that his tummy couldn’t handle. Anyone got any tips for removing sick stains from light coloured carpet?
The sky looked dark but Paul was confident it wouldn’t rain for at least another hour. I thought about taking my rain jacket but decided against it. We set off across the fields and into the woods and then the rain started. We sheltered under a tree. The rain eased a bit so we set off again only to get caught in an absolute deluge. When the thunder and lightning started I turned around and ran towards home. Ran? Well, walked fast with the occasional jog. We were soaked by the time we got back. Rick thought it was all great fun. I wasn't too keen on the wet dog smell, reminds me of digestive biscuits.
At least the Amazon package finally arrived this morning. Rick is now the proud owner of a Day-Glo orange harness and collapsible water bowl.
