Footprints in the carpet...

Or more appropriately, pawprints.

Have you ever noticed that dogs don't care what they're stepping on in their race to get somewhere? They fully embrace the mathematical truity that the shortest distance from point A to point B is a straight line. My dog will step on you, the cat, Christmas presents, mud, - or, say, a tray of fresh paint.

I now have doggie footprints painted into my carpet.

Oh, and a freshly painted room.

One room down, one to go. I need more drop cloths.

Now this really made me chuckle this morning ... even though I do appreciate that painty paw prints are about the last thing you need when you're decorating!!

I'm usually the klutz that tracks paint on the carpet - no matter how many drop cloths I put down.

Ah, but a freshly painted room is so nice...

Hi Willow!

Well, I'm glad somebody got a laugh out of it : )

Hi adrienne!

When I was little my mom painted the bay window in the kitchen turqoise (she really likes that color). The cat ran through the paint and we had to give him a bath. For years after that there were little turquoise splatters in the tub. It was very artsy looking.
