Dempsy's Mom Posted July 30, 2017 Share Posted July 30, 2017 (edited) I have been thinking of you all but everything has been on the back burner for the last month or so. We hardly ever get off the farm and when we do it is a pain to have to drive home late in the dark. So I have been on a mission for the last couple of years - looking for a house in Watertown that is within my price range. No luck. So since there is no house I decided I would purchase my next dog friendly car. Love it. .... now remember we are in a drought. Money is tight. I know this. Jim and I have never had a toy. Everything we have is work related - a couple of weeks ago this pontoon came up and so we bought it - not without issues. ... Ok we are moving through life. Having fun, right? Then, after I have depleted my savings, the real estate agent pops me a picture of this house. I was out picking up road ditch bales and just happened to look at it - right away I knew that was it. I told him I need to see it tonight. So Jim and I ran off to see this little house built in 1959 - it was pristine. Perfect. So to the bank I go and now I am in debt big time. It has been quite stressful. Anyway that's why I have been neglecting cairn talk and the dogs. So when Jim and I ran off to look at this house. Elsie was pissed. She had had it! Pushed to her limits. I haven't been taking her with me in the new car - partially because it was to hot and partially because I was selfish. I have been leaving them home quite a bit. When we returned from our house hunt that evening everything was pretty quiet. Hmmm. Where are the dogs? I settled in and then went into the TV room. What the hell!! I have a good sized hole in the carpet. Carpet padding and shreds of carpet fibers all over the room. I couldn't believe it. Never had either of the dogs ever been this destructive. I know it was Elsie, because that is where she lies. Neither of the dogs fessed up. I could not yell at them - I was just stunned - this hole is now my future - it is done - I knelt down and gathered the padding and shreds of carpet fiber. Neither of the dogs came into the room. So .... trust is broken on both sides. Lesson: Don't piss off a cairn. Edited July 30, 2017 by Dempsy's Mom Quote Elsie, Max, Meeko & Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
