Dogs and carpet . . . Why!?

So, as I mentioned on my “About Me” page, we have two dogs.  They have (mostly) been the love of our lives for over 13 years.  They’re getting old (13 and 11).  With age comes some interesting things.  Different smells, different sounds, different temperaments, and, for one of them, becoming crazy scared of thunderstorms.

DogsAbout 4 years ago, our changed a bit and for some reason, wouldn’t wait until we got home to go potty.  We installed a doggie door (because she can’t handle being crated) and everything was fine.  That was until about last year.  Now, when we have thunderstorms, she will not go outside.  Usually, she will go hide in the closet.  When she has to go potty when we aren’t home. . . forget it.  She find a great place to relieve herself.  Although we have laminate and tile throughout the house her favorite place is right smack dab in the middle of your living room rug.

Last week, she relieved herself about 5 times in the exact same place.  We thought the rug was going to be garbage.  We scrubbed and scrubbed and no matter how much product we used or which type, it still smelled horrible.

Thankfully, my good buddy, Joe, pointed me to a great company to get our rug cleaned (shout out to:  To tell you the truth, carpet cleaners aren’t my favorite type of business people.  You know . . . the ones that have that great coupon and they show up and say, “well that’s extra because your carpet is beige or dirty” and then they up sale you and you end up spending twice as much as you thought you would?  LOL.  I can say, though, these guys won’t.  Give them a shout if you’d like.  You, most likely, won’t be disappointed.
