Babyproof is not Puppyproof

Further humiliations in household safety today. We are watching our friend's 70 pound shepherd puppy for a long weekend, and right out of the gate he upset a watering can in the living room. Mopping it up actually gave me a chance to clean up the new hardwood floors a little, but still. And while the baby gates help maintain dog/puppy/cat separation, I am discovering that a new level of vigilance is required. Also, nap management migth be an issue if the dogs continue to sort out their various alpha and beta roles. (Our dog is --surprisingly -- in the running for alpha.)

All things considered, the watering can is not as bad as the last playgroup I hosted, when a neighbor's toddler came strolling back into the front room with a can of insect repellent in her mouth. The insect repellent was organic, and the safety cap was on. But still.

Oh, sure, when YOUR baby makes a mess it's cute... Hang in there, buddy, only one more day! Thanks.
