Dempsy's Mom Posted February 5, 2016 Share Posted February 5, 2016 Crap. Sometimes that all you can say. Sometimes there is just no resolving. You can't turn back the clock. You just bite the bullet. These are the thoughts that have been running continuously through my mind. I mad a bad mistake and Dempsy made an even huger mistake. This morning was a whirl wind of activity. It was about 7:45 am and the seed semi pulled in to deliver our soybean seed. So I hurry, pull on a coat, slip on my boots, stick a stocking cap on my head and I was just ready to shut the entryway door on Elsie and kitty when Dempsy scooted in. Whatever and I pulled the door shut. A couple hours later I returned. Came in the entry and saw a stocking cap shredded on the floor - "No big deal," I said to myself. Then I glanced over at the kennel and I saw their bed ripped. Still. Not big deal. Then my eyes fell upon Jim's new $80 shoes. My heart sank. I gently picked up a shoe and almost wept. "OK, now let's not panic." Dempsy is looking up at me, bright eyes, tail wagging, so proud. "Demps. What did you do?" ..... Ok. I can fix this - I always think I can fix everything and make it better. Duct tape? Brown shoe polish in the big gouge at the back of the heal and maybe Jim won't notice? Shoe repair man? My only sure win out is to run to town and see if I can buy another pair of shoes just like it. Another $80 for peace? Dempsy got one shoe good and put a little nick in the other. Crap. I am still deliberating on what I should do - should we fess up or fork out? I knew better than putting the two dogs together. Dempsy always looses his marbles when he's with Elsie - goes into that seek, attack, destroy mode. Personally I think it's the male in him. Now this is all I can think about. I put Jim's shoes in the closet. (Where they should have been!!) Quote Elsie, Max, Meeko & Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
