Things That Go Slurp in the Night

Last night I was in bed by 9:27. This never happens, but my body is basically on shutdown going into Easter, so, there it was. I awoke with a start at 1:00 and grabbed some water and relieved my three-sizes-too-small bladder. I crawled back in bed, curled up around my sleeping hubbers and started to drift off. A few minutes later I heard the slurp-slurp-slurp of the little blonde cocker spaniel sneaking a drink from the commode. I felt too tired to reprimand her and started to close to my eyes again. Until I remembered that in an effort not to wake anyone up I hadn't flushed. I leapt out of bed, pushed her of the porcelain and immediately made her drink a full glass of water (yes, I did give her a glass, and yes, she did drink it) to flush out her system. I'm still disturbed. Especially when she licked me this morning on the face.

This gave me such a giggle this morning. Hubs and I don't flush in the night either. It has never crossed my mind that our tall-enough-to-do-it dog might just be getting a little "lemonade" herself. I must be more vigilant with either the lid or the door.
Happy Lil' Friday,
Lulu and Daisy
