In trouble

Thursday morning is when Jenny goes to her welsh class. We got a quick march round the block and by just after eight o'clock, she had gone to her class and Keith had driven off in his van.
We were left alone...
But soon, she'll be coming back and she won't be pleased. Only yesterday I heard her saying how good it was that Jake had stopped having 'little accidents', which shows that he has finally settled down here. Well, maybe he has, but this morning we seem to have had a hiccup and there is a puddle and a mess in the dining room.
The other thing is that, although we KNOW we're not supposed to do it, when the humans are out, we like to lie on the back of the armchair in the window and watch the world go by - only this morning, we were watching the orange cat from across the road go by and I got a bit excited, as any self-respecting terrier would, of course. So the throw is now on the floor instead of on the chair and the cushion is looking a right mess.
Looks like we're going to be in trouble again...

    Paddy is a son of a bitch in more ways than one. He deliberately piddled on the floor where he knew the madam would spot it and immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was me. I was in my basket all the time the madam was out dreaming of bones (I mean I was dreaming of bones - probably not the madam!). It was also Paddy who messed up the throw and the cushion. All the time the madam was admonishing me and mopping up the piddle puddle Paddy was sniggering in the background whispering, "Gotcha!" but of course the madam favours Paddy - dog biscuits wouldn't melt in his yapping mouth!

  2. I admitted to the cushion and the throw but the rest was down to you, Mophead, and don't you deny it!

  3. Ha! Got you in trouble yet again. It's soooo easy!

  4. animals ALWAYS know when they step over the line!

  5. As long as it's only 'occasional'. If it happened regularly I'd be building an outdoor kennel.

  6. I think you're right there, John.
    Cro, it is only occasional but still very unwelcome when it happens. ;)

  7. Yes, Orange Cat and you are soooo dead next time I step out through the front door! Grrrrrr!
