Black and White Sunday: Privacy, PLEASE

I know that 99% of you can relate to the fact that as soon as you try to close the door to any room, but especially the bathroom, everyone needs to see what is going on. It used to be my 2 legged children would come find me but now it is 4 legged furballs that seem to think that as soon as I want a moment of privacy, that is a signal for them to need something. I know it is my fault because I always go the bathroom before I take the dogs for a walk and now they think ANYTIME I go in the bathroom must mean I am getting ready to walk them. Because, as we know, humans have no other life but that which is connected to walking, feeding, brushing, playing, or otherwise interacting with furballs and WHY would a human EVER want to be by themselves doing anything.

Have a wonderful black and white Sunday.

Black and White Sunday: ‘The LOOK’

Both dogs THINK they want to be in the bathroom with me whenever I go in. Sofie loves to sleep in the steam while I take a shower. Louise, as you can tell from ‘the look,’ thought this was going to be more fun.

Have a wonderful Sunday!


This is part of the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop. Thanks to Dachshund Nola and Sugar for hosting.

10.6.12 A Room Of My Own

The problem with trying to take a shower here at the zoo is that there are always at least 2 animals that are in the bathroom with me at any time and several lining up outside the door trying to get in.  At this point, and now that all the kids are gone, I don’t bother to close the door because it is only going to get scratched up or some animal is going to stand on the other side of it and whimper and bark (and we all know who that would be.)  Louise, being the muscular thin haired dog that she is, does not like the cold tile of the floor, so, unless I put my bathrobe or a large towel down, she prefers to wait right outside the door on the carpet.  Sofie on the other hand, having 3 layers of fur, loves the cold tile and lies right outside the shower door.  Sometimes it is really hard to get out of the shower because she is fast asleep on the bath mat and has me trapped in the stall.  I guess they need to know where I am at all times.

I thought that when the kids no longer lived at home,  I could finally have the master bathroom back.  Even though there are 2 other bathrooms in the house, everyone wants mine (it does have the best shower and the best light, but I really think it is BECAUSE IT IS NOT THEIRS!) I have given up trying to keep animals out.  My huge soaking bathtub has become a velodrome for cat athletics.  Nine and Stella go racing into the bathroom the minute I open the door to chase cat toys around the inside of the tub (it is really great for rolling little cat balls around and it keeps them busy for a long time).  Kitty of course, likes to pee on the rug by the sink, and Muffin likes to chew on the plants (he does this first thing in the morning so that he can tick me off and I will go upstairs and feed him).  The only one that I have never seen in my bathroom is Noël (but maybe I just don’t see her because my bathroom is all white and she is all white too (just joking)).  But really, she does not come in there.

With Sofie’s allergies this season, I am kind of glad that she stays with me when I shower, so that the steam opens up her airways a little (yes, I am always thinking like a Mother).  Is it the comfort of being near or is it the soothing sound of the water that relaxes her and puts her to sleep in a matter of moments?

I don’t mind sharing the master bath with the other master in the house, but all these minors are just making me crazy.  Oh, did I mention the black Labby Lulu hair that just covers the white tiles any time she enters the room?

3.31.12 Bathroom Etiquette

Mommy - are you done yet?

Do you ever wonder why children and pets hate when you are in the bathroom with out them?  I was going to take a shower.  As you can see 3 of the pitiful zoo creatures were camped outside my bathroom door.

Nine and I will just lie on your PJs

Silly me, I let them in.

Can I jump into the bathtub with you, Mom?

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..

Nine likes to eat the plants (and so does Sofie when she can) – so when you get out of the bath or the shower, you are lucky if you do not step in dirt with you clean feet.  Hahahaha.  Silly goofies!  They just want to be wherever I am.  But, just when you are finally settled and soaking nicely in the tub, someone wants to leave.  Oh my – now you know I am not getting out to open the door.

Nine & I want to leave now can you open the door plz?

It does get kind of embarrassing when people come to visit us because my house is old and the doors do not close well and the animals all like to barge in on anyone sitting in the bathroom.   I try to discourage that behavior but we do not get many visitors….  Oh….  maybe that is why?….  Just realized that.

The dogs and cats all like to lick the water from the shower basin (that is probably bad, right?).  What’s a PetMom to do?  It keeps them busy and I can keep an eye on most of them.

Excuse me visitor, but why are you sitting there?

Can we jump on you?
