Four on the Floor

SUMMARY: On hands and knees on the kitchen floor, making the world a better place to live.

The mud comes
on little dog feet.

It spreads slowly
over carpet and flooring
in silent bunches
and then stays there.

      - Carl Mudburg


The agility equipment stands poised in a sea of mud-like substance. The dogs blow in and out through the dog door all day long. It's rained steadily for two days with no sign of letting up for another three. Hey--let's clean the kitchen floor!

Taj MuttHall installed this wonderful flooring that you can hardly tell is dirty. Well---sort of. If you're just passing through and mostly paying attention to the stack of papers on the table or the dogs trying to get between your feet and trip you.


But then--ack--you clean part of it, and then you realize how dog-awful it really is. So you can't just clean up a couple of spots; it's the whole kit and caboodle or nuthin'.
