Choose For Me

Our poor, poor Jessie is not doing so well. This picture is from happier days. She can barely walk and is having accidents in the house. Just when I think that it may be the time for her last car ride, she seems to straighten up and the accidents stop. She is having a hard time getting up and down the stairs. But for 13 she is a fighter and it just breaks my heart.
She had an accident in the house the other day. It was in Den's game room. He lovingly helped me by scrubbing the berber with bleach. Yes, bleach spray! I bet that you didn't know that if you spray bleach on white berber it turns brown. Who knew?!?!?!?!
So which one should I be mad at?
Off to scrub berber,
SonyaAnn

I really hope she's not in pain. We just went through this earlier this year and it's not fun at all.
Take care.

Oh, your poor baby. My Dorky Dog is 16 now, and going through the same thing. He has LOTS of trouble with the four steps we have to the back door, yet sometimes, once he's outside, he bounds around like a puppy. I don't get it. Thankfully, all his accidents so far have been on the ceramic tile in the kitchen or the hardwood in the living room.

You put a rug over that stain and don't be mad at either and hope that when you are old and have an accident on the carpet, someone will do the same for you.

Poor Jessie. It is hard to know when it it time to let our dear pets go. I can't give you advice as I think every situation is different.

I guarantee Jessie knows she is loved.

I like Frances comment about the rug. I think I'd like Frances around when I am old.....8-)

Dang carpet! It never cleans the way you want it to... But I did start using the mixture of Dawn & hydrogen peroxide and it's been cleaning up poop & pee spots beautifully on our cream carpets lately!

Having the same problem with one of my dogs here. After reading your post, going to go hug my carpet cleaner.....

Mark-Every time I think that she is at the end of her life, she gets better. Maybe she is a faker.

SonyaAnn said...

ChiTown Girl-She has a hard time with the two steps on the back door too. It does break your heart.

SonyaAnn said...

Frances-Ok but he still cleaned the floor with bleach. I may roll him up in a rug and take him for a drive-Den not the dog.

SonyaAnn said...

sluggy-You would prob have an accident because she would be feeding you too much alcohol!

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-I use that same thing to clean my carpets, Den uses bleach. Grrrr.

SonyaAnn said...

Mamma has spoken-I have a carpet cleaner, I usually don't use it on little spots. It won't take out the bleach stain. LOL

If you need help 'taking care' of that project, let me know! Hubs has Joisey familia who could probably be talked into 'assisting' you...... ;-)

sluggy-HAHAHA, see all of that research is going to help us all!
