Spring Fever!

I do believe that my dog has spring fever. He has been so crazy the past 2 days I almost want to place an ad for a new home for our Benny!

Yesterday after I made one grocery store stop, yet had to look for a better cut of Corned Beef at another grocery store, I left my huge dog in the van. I didn't think it was a problem. I had done this many times before and he was wearing, what we call, his Priest vest which helped him to be buckled in. (The vest is black with a bit of white fleece that pokes up at the neck. You take the seat belt through a loop in the back of the vest and secure your giant dog in the seat. He's as big as a person. Yup.)

When I came back to the van the vest was dangling from the seatbelt --- empty. What the?!? I look in the very back of the van and see this brown animal. 'BENNY!!!' I shouted. He jerked his head up so fast that he sprayed flour, which he had his nose buried in, all over the back seat. He lept over the seats in a lame attempt to get back in his seat and pretend that he didn't do anything. "What? Me? What?" His eyes seem to say. What a dork. (I could be talking about either one of us at this moment.)

At home the clean-up started. I want to share a product that I really appreciated having. In case you're in need of a fantastic, earth-friendly cleaning product let me recommend ecostore Spray Cleaner. I've been using this for kitchen clean-up and have been really happy with it. And now that I've had to use it on the interior of my van, let me just say, it works great!

So, if you're in need of a great cleaning product that uses earth safe ingredients try ecotore. The labels are cute too! And if you would like a huge chocolate Labrador drop me a line. (Just don't tell my family.)

  1. oh i have one of those doggy seatbelts too!! :)

    I have yet to leave my dog in the car alone.... I'm afraid to do that!! When I was a teenager we had a dog who was not a very hyper or destructive or anything but my mom left him in the car for 5 min and he ate the seatbelts. While my current pup isn't always destructive, she can be quite hyper when she is excited or fearful, and so I think the chances of her eating the car interior is much higher! lol! But perhaps one day I'll be brave and leave her in the car for a few min....;) (as it is, though, she whines when I close the door and take my time walking around the van. lol ;)

  2. That's too funny! (Although I am sure it didn't seem so hilarious at the time!)
    I know that look quite well, actually. I think every beloved pet has got it down cold. :)

  3. Now I don't feel so bad. I constantly say I am going to give our dog away. Although the winter is the hard time - he cannot really go outside then.

  4. ROFL! From the beginning of the post I was thinking, Aw, the dog's just horny is all." Nope, he's dumb. Flour? Of all the things you picked up at the store he picks flour to eat? Heeheeheeeeeeeeeee!

    And in case you didn't get the email I just sent you, that is NOT my front porch on my blog! It's the breeder's!

    Justine :o )

  5. I think my cat has the same spring fever your dog has. She escaped out the kitchen door while someone was coming in and came back 2 hours later with a little kitten friend :-).
    Kitchen clean up. ACKKKKKKKK.

  9. Very funny story.

    My dog is small (roughly the size of a cat), and one time she was "missing." (Usually she is glued to my hip.) So I called her a couple of times, and she came running upstairs with her tail between her legs looking very guilty. I started petting her, asking what was wrong, when something started to slowly protrude from her mouth. (It was kinda freaky.) It ended up being an entire chicken wing that she had found and stuffed (in its entirety) into her mouth when I called her. (You know how if you find a dog eating something they're not supposed to and they try to eat it quickly before you take it away? Yeah.)

  10. Oh no!! Bad Benny! I can totally picture him trying to get back in his seat like nothing ever happened - they are so human that way!

  11. I want a chocolate lab so bad but I don't think my son is ready yet. Maybe in about 2 more years.
