Max is an oak ice box that is porcelain lined and HEAVY. Max has been a fixture in our dining room for over 25 years. Whenever we have moved, our very first decision is the placement of Max because once he's in place - he stays put!
Someone was very clever to leave room underneath to place a drip tray for the melting ice and to get a dust mop under there for a good cleaning from time to time. That opening is NOT very big -
just shy of 4 inches at the highest point.
So rather than writing blog posts or leaving comments, I am doing things like coaxing a growing puppy out of a spot I fear she may get into and grow just enough that she can't get back out again. In just two weeks, she has gained 50% of her body weight - making this a rational fear on my part. I keep picturing Winnie The Pooh having to lose weight to become unstuck from Rabbit's hole. I don't relish a similar scenario here at home.
I'm trying my best to keep up with posts in Google Reader, but leaving comments just doesn't fit into the few minutes between rushing outside to go potty, stopping a naughty puppy from chewing an unauthorized object, and so on and so forth before I can even think about things like laundry, shopping and fixing meals . . . puppies are not for the easily tired, that's for sure!
I know this phase will end, maybe not as quickly as I would like at this point - but stick with me, I'll be back.
