View Full Version : The Infamous Fortress of Gertitude

I've spoken often of the Fortress where Otto and Grrrt spend their days while I'm at work or away. Named after the Fortress of Solitude from some comic book. Normally there's no air freshner there, but after Otto's diarrheal outbursts, I had to do something.
Here it is closed:

Can you spot the real doxie?

It's Otto! All snuggled up:hearts:

:hearts: I was wondering what the fortress was, and was secretly laughing at the title. You have a great sense of humor!

Is the "funk" in the air or on surfaces? If it's in carpet, baking soda helps (sprinkle, leave on for 10 minutes, vacuum up.) The rest of my cleaning supplies are so pungent and strong! I had to open a window, but it's a tad bit warmer here. :)

We were told to get the children's Immodium for Marta's tummy, which is green liquid mint. Ack! Not fun to clean that one up if it's hurled. I mean, do they really have to make it green? ;)

The bed came from a shop up in Southern Maryland. I'll have to see if they have a website.
Don't tell, it's a CAT bed! It was really inexpensive due to the fact that the local populace didn't really think dogs/cats needed items like that, and the owner of the shop wanted to just get rid of it, as it was taking up space. I replaced the cat pad with beds from Target and a blankie I got for Xmas one year.

Nothing better than a snuggled up puppie! Great bed too!

Soooo sweet! I also love the bed! Maybe something my guys wouldn't eat! WHy is it that every good deal is a one time thing?!

I'll make you even more annoyed....that bed cost a total of $35 bucks.

And I got the black dachshund from Target months ago. I think I had 40 bucks left till payday, needed gas and bought that thing instead. :)

Cute little pupper face in the blankets!

It's so much fun taking photos of them. What you can't see is Otto's tail starting to "thwack thwack thwack" the back of the bed when I got down on the floor. So happy Mommy was close, but just not gonna get out of bed to come and see me.
