It seemed to me that the dogs were being extra bratty today, like they took a double dose of stupid pills this morning, and I think I've figured out why.
I noticed that they keep going over to the antique sideboard that stands next to our 2nd refrigerator (the small one) and licking the floor. I wondered if they were attracted by a puddle of pee, but even Polly is too big to squat under that sideboard. I investigated. The puddle wasn't pee. It was pale pink and spreading fast around the little fridge and the sideboard. With great misgiving, I opened the fridge door. One of Mr. P's jugs of home made wine was leaking from its spigot. I fixed the spigot, mopped up the wine, and the party was over. Now the dogs are lying around in a drunken stupor, and I've got to find a way to get them outside before the puking hangovers start.
