The Incident of the Dog

The Incident of the Dog

This just in. One of our clients sent us this email this morning, only days after we helped them buy their new living room rug. Just thought it was worth passing on. (Thanks, Suzanne!) MGR

We invited friends to come for lunch last Thursday. They own a border collie, Lida, of whom I am very fond. They asked if they might bring her, and, of course, I said yes.

Well, the dog, a country critter, first refused to go down the marble steps in the lobby. Then when she got to our apartment she was absolutely freaked out by the slippery floors.

Well she finally made it into the living room whereupon she proceed to poop three times on the BRAND NEW RUG! All I could do was scream with laughter. I mean, what else are you going to do in a situation like that? A $3,000 rug, purchased ten days ago, pooped on by a friend's dog? Actually, it wasn't as bad as it could have been. It picked up easily and no harm done.

Thought you'd be amused. Suzanne
