my friend's dog did the same thing only it was from being old and incontinent---------he went from one end of the living room to the other end even managing to splash it up against the walls........she was in control and I went and bought her some carpet shampoo while she used up what little she had left......poor Brownie had to be put down a week later as he also had quit eating..........I held her hand and cried with her as she was in pain even though I wasn't overly fond of him very much.............

Oh gosh, Laurie, what's next? Have you checked outside to see if frogs are falling form the sky? ENOUGH, already. I'm so sorry.

Thanks, everyone. The insurance adjuster and the restoration project manager are both ignoring our calls and our emails. All they need to do is call and arrange the last piece of asbestos flooring taken out of our unusable ensuite then call and let the flooring company know they can go back in and arrange a plumber after that. Three phone calls!

I have been patient, but I am loosing that now. But I am not going to lose my temper. It will all work out.....someday.

Thanks Attie. I am just happy that we have a roof over our heads. Good friends had their house burn down completely and they lost everything in September and the builders are just going to start construction next month. Thankfully they have a place to stay, but it has been difficult.

Hugggs LP! Life can be a real pain in the rear, sometimes! ... continued thoughts and prayers for this issue(s) to resolve itself.
