I had a meeting at 11:45 in town. At 11:00 AM I made a last minute decision to haul Maddox, Copper, and Daisy with me and by 11:20 we were on our way to town. Getting two dogs and a baby ready in 20 minutes was definitely todays accomplishment.
I was feeling pretty good about my accomplishment so after my meeting, I decided to venture with Maddox, Copper, and Daisy to the doggie wash. I must tell you, Scott thought I was absolutely insane for doing this alone. Anyone that knows me, knows I am always up for a good challenge, so against his wishes I attempted.
I arrived and somehow managed to get all three out of the car without any major problems. Two 80 pound dogs and a 30 pound baby carrier being towed by a 120 pound girl was a sight to see. I got to the door, I used my telekinesis to open it but no luck. I put the carrier down, pulled the door hard, picked up the carrier, and ran in all before the door shut. I am sure the person on the other end of the security camera monitoring was getting quite a chuckle.
Maddox sat wide eyed in the corner while I carefully bathed both dogs without any road bumps. Maddox I believe managed to sneak in a wash too. She was a little wet so I shot the doggie dryer at her a few times. She smiled, I smiled, life was good during this particular moment as I watched her baby hairs fly around.
Plus, the fact that at this moment, I felt like I could conquer the largest mountain.
I decided to push my luck even farther and take Maddox on her first walk by the lake with Copper and Daisy. It was incredibly windy and Copper was acting funny. I decided to venture to the vet with everyone.
I got to the vet, got both dogs, Maddox, my purse, and the diaper bag in the door and sat down breathless, only to discover Maddox needed a diaper change. I think I froze in time. How do I manage this? Do I take all of us into the tiny restroom? Do I politely ask someone to hold two eighty pound dogs? None of the above. I reached into my diaper bag, got my supplies, tied both the dogs around one thigh and changed her.
On a funny note, after the dogs were seen I took them to the car while Maddox and I waited for doggie test results. A vet tech wanders by us and says, “The doctor will be right with you.” Everyone in the waiting room of the vet office who had not seen me with the dogs gave me a funny look as if we were in the wrong office. It was a good day today. I hope I see more of these.
I loved this entry : )
