March 17th, 2013:
The morning started out with me finishing up the walls in the living room/kitchen areas:
Later that afternoon, Jamie came over and we headed out to look at a dining room table set that we found on craigslist. I thought it was okay, but I wanted to think about it a little longer, so we headed downtown to Sweet Mel's to enjoy some burgers and green beer.
This is when my fabulous night turned into a dreadful night. I opened the door to my apartment and immediately noticed that Penny didn't run to the door to greet me. The door to my bedroom was shut, so I knew I accidentally left her in there with the door closed. My first reaction was "oh great, I wonder if she peed anywhere..." Well -- it was much worse. She tried to dig her way out of the bedroom. The only thing I can think of is she was terrified of the rain that night and is not used to being the room alone with the door closed:
Eventually I stopped crying and we drug the table set up to the apartment.
It's hard to be mad at a dog that didn't really know what she was doing. Her poor little snout was so red and raw... and I had to get tweezers and pull carpet out of her teeth.
It was a crazy day.
