What Fresh Hell Is This?


Yesterday afternoon the foreman plumber called in by chance to see how his heating system has bedded down. He checked this and that and tweaked the other and also kissed Winnie on the forehead  as she stood straining with lips pursed,  on the armchair as he passed.
He was chatting about us having solar panels installed when Mrs Frazer knocked on the kitchen window waving a handful of Christmas cards, so asked if he could use the loo as I went to answer the door.
I forgot to warn him of Mary's obsession with the toilet bowl.

Now I am the one that has fostered this latest Welsh terrier bad habit , for because of her need to follow me everywhere, I have allowed her to accompany me into the loo when I go so she can indulge herself in a very happy 20 seconds post ablution, moment of watching the water ( and detritus) swirling down the bowl!

Mrs Frazer was hanging around in order to work out who my other visitor was when the plumber returned with Mary in tow.
I think she had literally caught him by surprise, for before he said his goodbyes , he whispered conspiratorially
" I've just peed on your dog's head"

    1. I was about to say "TMI, John", but it's our job to defend our furry friends at whatever cost, isn't it?

  6. You made me laugh this morning, thank you. The same happened to my dog,except my dog went bug shit crazy after it happened. The boy friend (ex) was lucky to get out of there with all his bits and bobs intact.

  7. Perhaps the dog will now rethink that habit?

  9. Elsie is the same - loves watching as the toilet flushes. It must be a quirk of the breed. xx

  10. If rumours get started in Trelawnyd about kinky goings-on at your cottage, I'd blame Mrs Frazer.

  18. What is it about loo visits. Some day I will be able to go on my own.
    Fortunately I haven't (yet) piddled on anyone's head. Despite temptation.

  23. Our furry family do watch our every move.. mine accompany me to the loo as well but enjoy the trip even more if I go to the back door loo - where their doggy door is located. Then they can nip out at the same time.. all very companionable!! No flushing water watchers here - they are much too short. Bella one of ours hates 'farting' gets really disgusted.. I can imagine the look on her face if she got peed on!! Sounds like Mary was unperturbed..she's a trooper :)
