It was bound to happen.
I just didn’t think it would happen on day one.
Yes, day one.
Day one of Dex nestled in his waterproof case.
Yesterday morning, I sealed Dex in his new case and sent him off with Jack on their first day of summer camp. Dex stayed safe and dry, and Jack had a blast.
Jack came home tired and, while watching TV, fell asleep on the playroom floor.
Dex fell out of Jack’s pocket. Or, perhaps Jack checked Dex and left him on the floor.
Regardless, Alex, our dog, found Dex and thought it would make a good chew toy.
And there went our waterproof case.
Dex survived unharmed, thank goodness.
But, can you guess where I’m going today? Back to R.E.I. to buy another case, of course.
If my guys weren’t so sweet, especially when they sleep, I might be annoyed, but I’m not. It was bound to happen.
Such is life with a boy and his dog...a dog who only chews the things the boy and his siblings leave on the floor (other than his own dog toys). He never chews shoes or furniture. I’ll lose an inexpensive, waterproof plastic case over a pair of shoes any day!
Perhaps I should buy two cases today?
P.S. In case you’re wondering, we declared Dex # 1 dead. After 10 days, and still no signs of life, we agreed that no amount of time or rice was going to revive him.
P.P.S. If you haven’t already registered, please consider participating in the Race to Cure Diabetes. It’s a virtual 5k that you can complete any time over a three-day period. I’m not a runner, and it’s going to be hot outside, but I’m doing it. I’m going to walk and help fund the cure! This "race" costs a mere $10, but that puts us $10 closer to a cure. Plus, there are prizes just for entering. Won't you please join us? See Mommy’s a Runner for details.
