Dog Sitting! Fun or Nightmare?

We were helping one of our youth group students by dog sitting her puppy.  I thought since her puppy is from the same litter of puppies as our puppy it would be fun. 

They dropped him of and immediately the dogs were having fun and playing.  My husband ended up taking each dog separately for a run before we put them to bed for the night.  

The next day things were going great the dogs were playing and being good.  I braved a walk with the dogs, stroller, and 4 year old.  WE made it!  :) :)  

Later in the afternoon the dog we were sitting decided to gobble his food really fast and then sneak and get as much food from our puppy as he could.  next thing we know he had thrown up a lot and cleaned most of it back up eating his gross puke!  :(  BARF!  

The hubby was really great helping clean the mess up.  We put the dogs in their beds while we were out and about and came back and the dog had thrown up again...and in his kennel!  The whole basement stunk!  :*(  It was gross, and again I am so thankful of my hubby since he took care of bathing the dog and cleaning the kennel!  :)  Praise God for awesome hubbies.  

Then after the dog was all cleaned up in horror he started peeing all over the house... :(  WHAT IS THE DEAL??  I think after my puppy constantly wanting to play and nip on him and then a bath he had enough and was trying to mark territory.  

So I did not want to complain too much so I never told the girl...only her mom.  I did not want her feeling really bad so I hope she is not reading this in horror.  LOL  If she is I hope she knows I love her and her dog still.  It was just a rough couple hours.

Do you have any dog or puppy horror stories?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
