We seem to be going through quite a few Puppy Pads around here. If I don’t have both eyes on Rita, 100% of the time, she’s in her little pen. On the floor is a big blanket looking thing that is waterproof on the side next to the floor and it’s washable but I keep it covered in Puppy Pads so if she does have an accident, I don’t have to keep washing that big mat. I’m not even sure calling it an “accident” is right at this point. Some of it is my fault because I’m just not going out with her at midnight when I’m here by myself.
Rita is quite happy in the little pen because we had gates up to keep her off the carpet anyway. She doesn’t like to be held and she never was one to sit with us. She has her big comfy bed and her heating pad so she’s happy.
The other day when I read that there could be an issue with toilet paper again (I don’t even know if it’s true), I thought about people who use disposable diapers and wondered if any of those people keep real diapers just in case there were to be a shortage of disposable diapers. I saw this article on the Lake Charles TV station. It isn’t saying there’s going to be a shortage; it’s saying Kimberly-Clark is going to increase the price for disapers (baby and adult), Kleenex and Scott Tissue. Not blaming them . . I’m sure everything is going up soon . . probably more than once.
I picked up a grocery order at Walmart yesterday and I added a box of Puppy Pads. I knew I had one unopened box in the laundry room closet, as well as a partial box but I had forgotten that there was a box still in Vince’s car from the last time I picked up a grocery order that included Puppy Pads.
Once Vince gets here, one of us will take Rita out right before we go to bed and that will hopefully mean we will not be having to replace the Puppy Pads every morning. I put 7 down in that pen and she seems to have perfected a method of standing in one spot and soiling three or four pads . . just get it right on the corner of all of them!
Whether she stops doing it or not, I think we have enough Puppy Pads to last us a while. I have no idea what I pay for them. I need them; I buy them. I should make a note of what I paid for them today and then, in six or eight months, when I need them again, see what the price is.
Here you go . . Pet All Star Training Pads, 22 x 22 – box of 100 for $18.96.
