Why I don't have pets

Dustin's mom left for Hawaii on Monday morning and will be gone until Tuesday evening. We are keeping her dogs at our house for her while she's away. She has 2 dogs: Gus, who is a yellow lab, and Ashes, who looks just like Toto from The Wizard of Oz. Both dogs have been around for longer than Dustin and I have been married so we figured this would be pretty easy (because they're old and just lay around all day.) Neither Dustin nor I are big "pet people" so we should've known it wouldn't be as easy as we were thinking.

Since the dogs have been here, there has been 1 puddle of urine on our basement floor, 2 outside of our bathroom and 1 inside the bathroom. Only one of these happened while we were gone. Our front yard, driveway, and sidewalk are covered in dog poop... I didn't know 2 animals could create so much waste. The real kicker was when we came home from KidStuf tonight... they had tipped our garbage over and dragged it all over the kitchen and dining area.

I do not have the gift of mercy toward animals and I'm trying very hard not to have a bad attitude toward them. Trying....very.....hard. I cannnot wait for Tuesday to come.
