This morning I’m picking up a foster puppy. But before I do, I need to put on my puppy-eye glasses to make the place safe.
What will that puppy see when he or she (no, I don’t know if he is a he or she is a she or how old the puppy is) comes to stay?
Puppy View of the World
First, I get down on the ground. What do I see?
- Chew toys on the lower book shelf — books, a birthday card, and dried up printer cartridges we need to turn in for recycling
- A trash can just waiting to be picked through and turned over
- Spaghetti in the form of my laptop cord, extension cord, and headset next to the couch
- A puppy potty spot in the closet by my desk or between the couch and the window
- Puppy cotton candy in the form of Honey hair that needs to be vacuumed from behind the door
Gee, I thought I was just a messy housekeeper. But now I see I’ve created a puppy paradise.
Puppy Proofing the House
I’d love to chat more but I have my work cut out for me. There is poop to be scooped and toys to be picked up.
But I’ll be back soon with pictures, hopefully set in a neat and safe house.
Your Turn: If you looked at your house like a puppy would it be boring and safe or the perfect setting for mischief?
