Just an ordinary Saturday here in started out with a joint family effort in making egg, cheese, and bacon panini's for breakfast and ended with Action and I cleaning up a dog "barfest" from all over the house. It should have clued us in when only one dog was hanging out in the middle of the kitchen and we weren't tripping over the other. He was quitely in the den throwing up in not one, not two, not three, but 5 different spots. And I don't want to sound like I am bragging here because I am in no way doing that, we've been married nearly 17 years and have lived in Navy housing, crappy rental houses, and apartments before we finally bought our first house less than a year ago. But we have finally bought our first house and it has top of the line everything from cabinets, granite to ceramic tile, but the carpet is crap!! I can clean it and the stain comes out, but then you can still always see where it was. So, I have 5 fresh new "used to be a barf spot here" stains on my carpet. What to do???

You may ask yourself, why the picture of your "senior basset"? Is he the culprit of the barfest? I have to answer, why No, because even when he doesn't feel well he has a hissy to be let out. The "other" dog appartly doesn't.... I have included a picture of Roscoe, who after much discussion today, we decided had a resemblence to John McCain. What do you think? So, we've been calling him Roscoe McCain today. I would also like to notate this disclaimer: I actually like John McCain, so this in no way implies that he is a dog, it is just us being silly!! And if any offense is taken to this, please get your panties out of a wad!

Oh my gosh - with those sad eyes it looks like he is apologizing for someone - I love close ups pics of dogs with big floppy ears. Oh yes and clever title too - Uh yes I got it the second time round :)

hey girl! sorry bout the barf-fest.
You might try getting some club soda from the store and brushing it in real good and then blotting it out. In my past experience with sick dogs (I had two that lived to be about 13-14 years) the club soda will get the stomach acid and big "D" stains.
Let me know if this works for you (that is if you try it) we have crappy sea foam green carpet and unfortunately, it survived both dogs.
On the plus side though, the two kids seem to be killing it fast!!

I don't think many carpets survive kids or animals all that well, no matter what type. Poor Roscoe. When we first got our dog, we bought a hand held bissell. It worked pretty good, especially to suck up the pp from the carpets and bare floors. I'm about to rent a shampooer and do the floors in my home this coming week...this blog only reminds me of the work I have ahead of me. Hope Roscoe feels better. :)

Ps. Call me when you get a chance, I would like to set up a scrap day...Christy called from crop @ SH and wants to get us all together.
