This morning Betty decided to empty her anal glands.....firstly on my bed 😱 - thankfully, I have a thick blanket on the bed for her to sleep on, so it was contained on there, but it still made the whole room stink. Then, wherever she sat in the lounge - on the floor, or on the sofas (we also have blankets on the sofas - Betty's very good, she knows the blankets on the sofas and bed are for her), she left a horrible stink. So I have a mound of washing to do this morning, my bed linen is being washed as well as the blankets, the first lot is already in the machine.
For those without a dog.....some dogs empty their glands naturally (hopefully outside!), others need them emptied 'manually' - by the vet or the owner, if you're brave enough and have a strong stomach!! And it stinks to high heaven, it's much, much worse than poo. At 8 o'clock we shall be ringing the vets and hopefully taking Betty there pretty much straight away, to make sure she's emptied out, they're very good there and usually try to get us in.
Also, husband helpfully 😒 decided to make my Earl Grey this morning - I'd told him yesterday I would do it myself every day. It's supposed to be left to brew for a few minutes, then stirred gently before removing the teabag, without squeezing. Well, husband likes strong tea, he doesn't leave it alone to brew but stirs it vigorously, mashing and squeezing the bag, until the liquid is dark brown. He did the same to my Earl Grey, which tasted revolting as a consequence. So, as I was a bit frazzled anyway because of the smelly Betty situation, I poured it down the sink and had my normal frothy coffee.
Good start to the day.....not! 😒
