Mom's fury...

Well, it happened... It finally happened...

3 years and 4 months later it finally happened.

Sydney destroyed something of value.

Mom and I went to Walmart when she got home from work and when we left Dad was getting ready to leave for his Fourth of July Spectacular event he was having with his junior high group. He's never left her out before, so he's never had the responsibility of closing all the doors and making sure things were picked up so she didn't get into trouble. Well, when mom and I got home there was trouble.

I peeked in the window and saw her standing there in the kitchen....with mom's shoe beside her...chewed!


Mom was livid! She yelled at her "Bad girl!" and put her in her kennel. Oh boy....


Now in Sydney's defense...we know that she has a shoe/sock/foot fetish so mom should have put her shoes away. Dad probably should have shut their bedroom door, but again, he had never left Syd out before, so he didn't know.... Mom admitted she should have put her shoes away, but alas she did not and now her shoe is ruined. They were an $85 pair of shoes, but she got them on sale for $35. Mom...always the bargain shopper. I guess she'll have to whip out some coupons and go get another pair. I see this as a fairly happy ending... she gets a new pair of shoes. Who doesn't love that?

Until............................

Somehow I don't think mom will get over it that quickly, but way to have a positive attitude for her! :) See you today.
