especially after dark. animals don't get the whole daylight savings thing...it's dark, the barn guys are not fed and in bed and the house guys are freaking cuz they apparently miss me when the sun fades away.
so what do i come home to?...frantic cleo who now knows she is not a big dog room dog. but where is she? in the big dog area...not likely says she.
so she digs back under the gate thru the muddy pit that the staff forgot to fill with gravel and slithers on her belly thru the mud and straight into the mp room to leave mud everywhere in there. IF i was a meanie...i'd leave that mess for someone tomorrow, but since i am not (and it was my dog who made the mess)...BIG SIGH...i will go and clean it all up in a few minutes.
she is still pretty dirty so all the beds in the house will have to be changed and washed in the morning, no point in doing it all tonight cuz she will just continue to smear them....i dried her off the best that i can but she is literally caked in mud and cleo does not like baths so i have to wait for her to dry to brush the rest off.
and that was not the only adventure..... the barn guys were not happy campers either. and i was missing 3 of their feed bowls which i could not find in the dark because...(ummm....sorry guys) the staff...forgot to bring them all in. so there i am pissing around in the dark and mud and pouring rain, looking for the missing bowls and all those impatient barn guys see is me wasting time and delaying their dinner even more. i finally gave up and tried to make do with what i had.
i should have decided to do this earlier because.....the barn guys had waited long enough....
ellie broke thru the wire on the gate again and percy decided he's just take out the lock on the gate completely. suddenly 10,000 pounds of pissed off, sloppy wet and in a real hurry barn flesh (with ellie and spritely in the lead) storms into the barn with me standing with my arms full of full feed bowls, right in their freaking way.
YIKES!!!! STOP!!!! HOLY F%#$ING SHIT YOU GUYS, SLOW DOWN AND DON"T KILL ME!!!!!
yes, we are all alive, yes we are all uninjured, yes we probably need a staff meeting to help keep the boss alive and well so she can write out tomorrows paycheque's.
and i just realized i might not have double locked the stall doors...better go check.
i HATE daylight savings time, it messes everything up.
