sofa goldmine

I've kind of been in project mode lately. This is a bit unusual and also a bit dangerous. Boy always gets nervous when I reach this level because he knows his assistance is going to be called upon like for this project I saw on Southern Hospitality's blog. I love this idea...this girl's going to have to do some serious sweet talkin' to get this one done.

But this morning after organizing some spring inventory and giving the bathroom a good scrub down I decided to tackle the sofas.

It's amazing and ever so gross how stuff creeps in the sofa's black hole so I like to take a vacuum to it every now and again. Then I tell boy no more eating on the sofa EVER again...which lasts about 30 minutes. It's worth a try.

And did I mention that pug decided to help when he found a goldfish cracker under the first cushion?



So as one of us is vacuuming and the other is snacking we come across something hard in the corner of the sofa. Pug gets very excited at what sort of big crumb this could be and goes at it clawing away to retrieve it. I shimmied my hand in there just right and low and behold pull this bad boy out.


The official missing phone from this previous blog post. I just knew it'd come back. I'm so excited!



After some praises for pug I asked him if this was his reimbursement for the heels of mine he decided to devour.

He's now out of the doghouse (no pun intended).

My pug wishes he was so lucky to find a goldfish cracker in the couch. I'm sure if I ever took the cushins out, he would have himself a good little snack.

Hilarious!

I'd probably eat the goldfish cracker, too.
I can't help myself. Even linty-sofa goldfish crackers are yummy.

Your dog is like a character on your blog. It's funny. And you type the things you tell him.

I don't own a dog. So I find all of this to be quite amuzing! :) He is a pug, after all.
