Why my dog is getting a benadryl tonight...

Oh my Goodness...

Talk about body snatchers, I think I must have the wrong dog in my house because I do not remember her being so stinking annoying! (Not recently anyways)

Pepper ALWAYS sleeps with preteen A, but tonight was an all-night paaaarrr-tay.

1:15 am - Pepper is pawing at my bedroom door which isn't completely latched, after some whining and pawing the door finally opens and she barges in. Circling the bed, back and forth about 87 times, she finally stops to itch her dry allergy skin... Thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud.....

2:00 am - In walks little P, to which the attack dog so kindly announces her arrival (insert really loud bark 7 times)
She says she "soiled" her bed... After some clarification that translates to she knocked her giant glass of water over and soaked her bed.

2:45 am - She is pacing the floor, rubbing her butt on my bed, sticking her nose under my hand that dared breach the perimeter of the bed and fall over the side and itching again... thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud thud. I kick the dog out of the room and shut the door.

3:30 am - Pepper is back pawing and crying to get in my room... I listen for a few minutes and then doze back off... I am abruptly awakened a few minutes later to her jumping up ON MY BED! Now I KNOW she has lost her stinking mind. Before you all go on thinking I am an animal hater, I have mega allergies, the fact that we can co-exist is a miracle in it's self... I draw the line at the bed...

4:15 am Hubby's alarm awakens me, and then I doze back off...

5:15 am My alarm awakens me... I shuffle out to get my coffee and turn off little P's TV and find the dog asleep on her bed and a pee spot on the floor.


  1. Its 1 mg per pound for Benadryl :-D

  2. I don't blame you for doing that one bit!!! Thankfully, from the time she was 7 weeks old, our baby (Min Pin named Tobi) has either been crated or penned in the kitchen with a bed and blankets. So we don't have to contend with what you just experienced. :o) Of course, she has to be tucked in at night, or she looks at us like, "You forgot something!" lol

  3. I was thinking it sounded like she needed to go out. My Pepper won't go out by herself at night but she will hold it until her eyes turn yellow. Poor thing.
    I'm so glad we have thumbs.... and indoor toilets.

  4. Hey Bookaholic,

    Just wanted to let you know I've left you a couple of awards on my blog. Congrats!
