We love to laugh in our house. It helps to have a husband who has quite the sense of humor.
Though I’ve had my ups and downs and waves of grief since Frankie’s passing, I do welcome the laughter my husband, John provides. I didn’t want to laugh at first, but thanked him the other day for keeping things light when I felt I couldn’t come out of my sadness.
He reminded me about the “Poop Fairy” and I thought I just need to share this with all of you and provide some laughter to you, too.
You see, when you live with a dog that has IVDD, often times they have incontinence issues. While you can do your best to be proactive with that– those little poops can have a mind of their own some days.
And so it is that the Poop Fairy came to be. It was early one morning as I scrambled to pick up the small little poops that were escaping Frankie’s behind. As I had one hand with tissue full of the captured poop escapees, in the other hand I had the air freshener I was spraying as I floated my way through the bedroom to the bathroom to dispose of the little buggers. John opened his eyes just in time to see me “floating through the bedroom” and said, “I think I just saw the Poop Fairy go by!” I thought I was going to pee in my pants from laughing so hard.
After he reminded me about the Poop Fairy the other day I said, ”The Poop Fairy just may return some day– have no fear.”
While at Bookworm Gardens yesterday and shopping in their gift shop I spotted the “Flying Fairy” (photo above). I just had to have it for my writing cottage. When I brought it home I said to John, “If you are missing the Poop Fairy feel free to come out to my cottage and visit the Flying Fairy any time.”
You just gotta have humor in life.
This post is dedicated to my sweet hubby for all his support in the work I so love to do with bringing awareness to wheelie dogs … and for providing laugher that fills my soul with love. I love you!!
