All hell broke loose...twice this week
So appearently my goofy Lab Beau does not learn lessons easily...
It all started Wednesday. I was at work and my wife was loading the dishwasher. Beau our lab has a bad habit of sniffing around the dirty dishes being stacked in the dishwasher and occasionally licking them if you don't shoe him away. Well he got something on his collar caught in the lower rack and when he pulled away, he took it with him. Of coarse it was heavily loaded with breakables which make lots of noise and all the noise along with being tied to the rack cause him to bolt. There was a glass picher that broke that he cut his lip on and the poor dog peed himself in all of his thrashings. My wife couldn't get near him to get him free but after just a second he got himself free. She cleaned up the glass and blood from his lip, conforted him and everything was ok after that.
Fast forward to this morning...same situation. I'm at work she's loading the dishwasher this time it's a glass jug we use for tea that got broke...only two differences. The alarm was armed and the breaking jug triggered our glassbreak sensor instantly setting off the alarm (it was set to no delay) and our infant daughter was playing on one of those activity mats on the floor. As beau was thrashing around he inadvertently started heading towards her, thank god my wife caught him in time. At least Beau managed to not cut himself this time and he didn't get too close to our daughter.
Could you imagine dealing with a thrashing dog dragging a loaded dishwasher tray, glass breaking, all of this heading towards the infant little girl in the floor, the alarm going off with the loudest shreik ever and the phone ringing with the alarm cpompany on the other end (if you don't answer it the cops are on the way.) It must have been a full on domestic tornado in here but it was all cleaned up by the time I got home.
