So I couldn’t go too long without giving you another funny story via the Charles! Usually when I vacuum the house I leave the Charles inside and he run around like a mad dog. I used to lock him outside but he tends to act out if he thinks he is missing all the fun (ie the vacuum) and would dig holes and then track in dirt on my freshly vacuumed carpet…kind of defeats the purpose! So I decided that I would rather just vacuum around him and have fun cracking up as my lunatic dog goes crazy!
Also, I am not the best at getting all the vacuuming done at one time and so I will vacuum the downstairs and then leave it out for the upstairs. I quickly learned that this might not be the best idea because Charlie has to stake his dog/man claim and starts barking and growling at it. It totally freaked me out the first couple times because he doesn’t bark that often and when he does I am totally caught off guard (and usually spill whatever I am holding at the time)!
The hubs came back from our recent cali vacation about a week before I did and when I got back he was like “it was fun, I chased the Charles around with the vacuum”! My first thought was “how sweet, you vacuumed!” why do I even try to fool myself! Not so! you see the hubs literally took out the vacuum and basically chased the Charles all around the house without the vacuum even being on or plugged in! It is hysterical to watch. Charlie has some great height on him and can totally clear the the couch (both from the front and back)! How could I be upset about that…I couldn’t stop laughing!
I love my crazy men! Have a great day :) Oh and I will try to get a video of it before we move so I can hopefully post it and you can all see what i’m talking about!
