    Default Who does the "Dirty Work"

    By dirty work I mean cleaning up crap and other nasty’s. I know around here it is my wife who cleans the yard, dog “accident” in days gone by, and changed all the diapers. Now I have on occasion cleaned the yard or bagged some poop on a walk, and I did change 2 dirty diapers in my day (numerous wet ones though). I am not sure why all the dirty work is done by her but I am glad she does it. On a side note I spent 8 years in a microbiology lab and read and processed more stool cultures and did more ova and parasite exams than you can ever imagine. For some reason I can do it at work, but not at home.

    I live alone so it's only me to do the dirty work! But even when I was married it was me who did it all - hubby was useless. Could be that's why he's an "ex"!!

    Well I too am alone so it is just me but for the most part the dogs prefer the big field below the barn and not a lot of clean up is required.

    Troy did help when there was a mess in the house but that isn't why he is an ex. 8)

    I do that stuff in our house - but, the husband is retired - so, he gets to run errands during the day and do the grocery shopping!

    Since Dave is often out on the road for several days in a row, much of that and the taking care of sick animlas goes to me. But when he is home he is the one in charge of airing and cleaning kennels. Inside messes are pretty much mine. and that included the muddy paw prints when I have to hurry everyone in for a bad storm. Thank goodness I have a good steam cleaner! That has also helped with the occasional upset stomach debris and comes in very handy when raising a puppy.
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.
