A Charmin Moment

Yesterday I came home from work and was greeted as usual with boundless enthusiasm by Maya and Chelsea. Little did I know that they were keeping a secret from me, as I got down on the floor and greeted them and wrestled with them for a minute before heading over for our traditional after-work treat.

I suspected that something had been going on when I glimpsed pieces of tissue on the floor in the living room, but didn’t give it much thought as #2 dog has been know to sneak into Gerry’s office and pull put letters or sweatshirts – really anything that she can get a hold of.

After I gave the girls their treats and they were off munching on them, I looked down the hall toward the bathroom and I couldn’t help but laughing out loud! There, dragged all the way down the hall, in bunches and shredded in places, was the end of the roll of toilet paper!

It looked like the girls (read: Maya) had a lot of fun yesterday afternoon, and their fun spilled over on to me by giving me a great laugh. I left everything as it was so that Gerry could have a laugh when he got home as well.

The laughter set a great mood for the rest of the evening. I’m tempted to have some toilet paper fun of my own the next time I feel stressed!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. see they knew it would make you laugh that’s why they did it….LOL
    you got love those little furbabies

  2. Love our furry critters–such pleasure!!

  3. A great moment!

    Reminds me of when my first, then-two, made it to the bathroom and unrolled multiple rolls. I have a beautiful picture of her proud and beaming face, surrounding by white, fluffy stuff. 🙂

  4. Hilarious! Gotta love ’em…

  5. I can’t remember the number of times my two have done something like that! It does bring quite a smile to your face doesn’t it?!

  6. Years ago our dog Munchkin (so appropriate) managed to pull a huge pillow out through her doggy door. When I came in through the gate that evening, it looked as if it had snowed in our back yard! We still laugh, every time we think of it.

  7. I remember coming home and my cats had destroyed some toilet paper. At the time, it wasn’t funny (because it was almost an entire package!), but it is now. 🙂

  8. It’s good your dogs are sweet!:)) SOunds like you had a very nice evening!

  9. Laughter truly is the best medicine. Hey, TP might just replace bubble wrap soon. 🙂
