We had some final holiday shopping to finish last night. Shopping with Spencer is never easy because two of his least favorite activities are sitting in the carseat and sitting in a shopping cart. We decided to just do everything at once so that it would be 1 big unpleasant evening rather than 3 unpleasant trips. Spencer's maximum tolerance for being put in and taken out of his seat is 3 times. We had to go to Home Depot, Cost Plus, Michaels, Target, Ashley Furniture and finally, to dinner. All in separate shopping centers. That is 6 times out of the carseat and 6 times in. So, it was a rough evening.
We finally get home and, oh joy, this mess is waiting for us:
This is the first time that Ginger has ever knocked over the garbage and rifled through it. This is very typical beagle behavior but is very untypical for Ginger. We're assuming she was mad at us for leaving her home alone and this was our punishment.
Here is a closeup of the scene of the crime.
Here is a closeup of the other scene of the crime.
I'm afraid that Spencer really enjoyed the sound of that glass breaking and will be wanting a repeat performance soon. At least he helped clean up. Don't worry- all the glass was gone before we let him walk around in his bare feet. I can't say the same for dust and dog hair.
