Halfway To The Weekend

Two more days until the weekend. I kept thinking today was Thursday. How disappointing to find out it wasn't. At least it will be Thursday tomorrow.

My naughty dog managed to tip or empty all of the water containers, there were 3 of them. I came home to some very thirsty dogs and dried muddy paw prints all over my floor. I thought he had gotten past that phase but I guess not. They sell $10 kiddie pools at the grocery store. I am wondering if I should try it for the dogs. Maybe they would play in it and leave their water dishes alone. The only thing I am worried about is wet muddy dogs. For $10 it is probably worth a try. I saw one of those pools on the side of the road on a windy day last week. I almost stopped and picked it out of the shrubbery but I was late for work and didn't have anything handy to tie it down in my truck. I have a yellow kiddie pool under my giant pot but that pot is really heavy so I don't think I am going to get that kiddie pool out any time soon. And if I wanted to be really frugal, I would use one of the old bathtubs that the previous resident left in the yard. He used them for gardening. But then I would need steps for the little dog. Wouldn't want him to get trapped in there. He probably doesn't even like water.

I don't know what I will try yet but I do know that I am going to use more wire to keep the bucket from getting tipped. At least they will have one untippable water source tomorrow. It is supposed to be over 100 degrees so they are going to need water for sure.

Daizy, once you retire, you will often forget which day it is when you wake up, or at least have to sit there and scratch your head for a minute. That happens to me sometimes.

But unless you have to be somewhere early in the morning, you won't really care!

That will be great. I don't remember losing track of time since summer vacations as a kid.

You might try putting a large rock or brick in a big water bowl to keep the dog from knocking it over.

Martha, you are right. I should put a brick in the bucket, That's the one they tip. The others they like to scoop out with their paw.
