|My apartment this past fall after beginning|
the minimization and simplification process
Mostly my couch.
Now, I'm trying to figure out what to do to fix the most prominent corner of my couch that the four month old puppy has decided was her chew toy. Luckily, it is only a small 3" x 3" spot she has sunk her teeth into, and I have completely saturated the corners with Bitter Yuck (something a trainer at a pet store had suggested). I could probably get the side re-upholstered for less than what it would cost to replace. And, to give me a piece of mind.
My whole journey was to simplify my life in order to enjoy the important things in life. I had also hoped to showcase my furniture in my home, as well, making it the centerpiece of my room. I wanted to have nice things. Necessary items that I worked hard to earn and keep. And, the fabric was supposed to be pet friendly. A micro-suede that would endure the legacy of a puppy obtained 6 years ago, and I had hoped, one over the holidays.
No such luck.
|Boots the pup|
Every time I go to the store, I pick up the little $1 rawhide bones to give to the pups. The 4 month old Boston Terrier (or Terror as she has become known as lately) will sit patiently awaiting one while I struggle to unwrap them to give to her. As I write this, she is sitting at my feet chewing quietly on one of those bones. My older pup lying at my feet while looking up at me lovingly.
I love my pups, but sometimes I feel as if my sanity lies in jeopardy with them.
But the thing is...I do love them...and most of the time...they behave. Just not tonight.
