Life with a terrorist.

We have been planning on selling our house to move to a newer/bigger place for about a year now. Something always seems to come up, though. Apparently, 'someone' doesn't want to move.

Now, to be fair, the very good thing about the monster is that he is learning to entertain himself so he is not crawling over top of his Mommies (in his eyes Mommies=jungle gym) 24/7, he entertains himself with a variety of toys. Or, in some cases, 'made up' toys, like my hairbrush or whatever else he finds 'lying around.' I am so envious of those of you who post pics of your doggies napping and cuddling and sleeping. That happens here..umm.. never!

Well, this time, the 'toy' was a near-full bottle of india ink. India ink = the blackest, inkiest ink that ever inked.

So, goodbye carpets! Becuase this is no ordinary spill. Somehow, he managed to twist the lid off, as the bottle and lid are still perfectly intact, yet the contents are EVERYWHERE there is carpet - stairs, landing. (Not to mention all over the wooden floors, but that easily wiped off, and a spot on the couch, which doesn't come off at all.) Making our house virtually unsellable until we replace the carpets. And since that expense is NOT in our budget, selling is off.

Luckily, regular dog shampoo took the ink of someone's little white paws and face. Too bad dog shampoo didn't work on carpets.

We have decided to embrace this and focus on the rest of the renos we should've already done (ie. the bathroom!) and put off because we wanted to move. But truly, is it a wise decision to move into a new house with a puppy still hellbent on destroying stuff? I'm taking this is a big ol' sign that the answer is a resounding NO.
