Oh yeah, he did! Here you’ll find humor in a 2 week wait. For those of you who aren’t aware, after an embryo transfer you are required to take it easy. Bedrest or couch potato rest, it’s often called. We have no children yet, but we do have a fur baby named Freddie. He’s a wonderful boy. I rescued him from A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter when he was 10 months old, but I digress. We came home from our embryo transfer feeling like we’d won the lottery, so I sent my husband to go and buy a lottery ticket for kicks. While my husband went out to get a lottery ticket…
Freddie and I were snuggled up in bed. I was laying on my side with a body pillow between my knees and talking to one of my best friends on the phone when suddenly Freddie stands on my hip and pees all over my belly! It took me a second to realize what was happening (I was drugged for the procedure), and when I did I squealed “Freddie!”. At which point he hopped off the bed, not a drop of pee anywhere else. Just all over my belly and the bed. Of course my girlfriend was like “what happened?!?!” So I explained…there was a long pause….then…”well, should we take it as a omen?” I didn’t know what to think. This is a fully potty trained dog who has NEVER peed on his or my bed and certainly not me. This dog is so smart that there was a time I didn’t realize he was trying to get me up to let him out in the middle of the night one night and I heard water flowing in the bathroom; it was Freddie peeing down the shower drain. He was able to get in because we had left the door open. Smart and resourceful pup. So I said to my girlfriend, well I guess he either just claimed me or the baby…I’m not sure which!
Here is my beautiful boy. I’d love to hear thoughts from you all about this!
