Our neighbors across the street from us have a few dogs that really like our yard. Even though we’ve mentioned it to them we still get treats on occasion left behind and the other day my husband thought maybe he or my daughter had stepped in some “puppy luv”. It smelled so gross and he washed their shoes and the floor with Clorox wipes (of course!). It wasn’t until I was on the floor playing with my 4 month old and my daughter walked past me 10 minutes later that I saw it. Somehow she had sat in some “puppy luv” on her way into the house from the car. Of course a 2 year old can be in many places over the course of 10 minutes and my mind started to trace her movements trying to think of everything that could have come into contact with her. Of course she’d chosen to sit in the baby’s carseat and rock herself back and forth in that time. I gag just thinking about it. In to the wash it went and the house got a good wash down with the wipes. Gross.

One bench, regardless of how busy and full the park was, was never occupied. Occasionally someone would sit down, probably thinking that they we so lucky to have a whole bench to themselves, and quickly realize that the tree the bench was under was occupied by pigeons, lots of pigeons who ate all the crumbs from all of the lunches of all the occupants of the park. Needless to say, no one ever sat on that bench long.

And sometimes it’s dog clay, as in “I think you stepped in some dog poo”, “Eww – I’m not sure it’s poo. I think it’s clay or something”, “Clay, yes – dog clay”.

Haha…if nothing else I will remember this little cautionary tale and look before I sit. :0 (I think we’re going to try and see Murano too.)

The real terms for this just sound yucky so we affectionately called it Montezuma’s Revenge. We still refer to it as this, makes me smile every time I think about it!

Somehow sounds much nicer than up-chucking.
