Brickle and Digby’s Perfect Mess

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Today, I woke up, and as usual, looked in the mirror.  I had to ask myself why I was so handsome today.  Even more handsome than yesterday.  Even more handsome than a month before.  And definitely more handsome than an hour ago.

I also asked myself a very important question.  How can this much handsome live in such a mess? What mess, you ask?  This Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.

We used to be cleaner.  Before this Adventure Of A Lifetime started, it seemed like our life was well, not a mess.  Now, the mess is a big mess and it is following us from state to state. Every week, we are in a different place, and the messes get bigger.

What I think is that our mess is perfect because I am in it. It also takes a lot of work to accomplish. Deputy Digby Pancake and I are very serious about this.

The persons would like to clean up our mess as we go along, but as soon as we get settled in one place, it is onward to a new state. So the mess is getting bigger, our road trips are getting longer, but it is My Perfect Mess. We can’t get away from the mess, we take it with us everywhere we go.

We start off every day by sleeping in because usually the day before, we were working hard. How do you get Deputy Digby Pancake to wake up? Not so easily. Sometimes, a big pile of pancakes does the trick. But sometimes, he eats the pancakes, gets syrup on the couch, and the mess starts. Did I say sometimes? I mean all the time.

Then, Girl Person tries to clean up the pawty from the night before. I am not sure why she cleans in the morning when the day is going to get messier, but whatever. And we are a very big help in this.

What does she see when she empties the vacuum every morning? If this was from a week, so be it. But how about one day? There, I said it.

So, yeah, you might be beginning to understand. But how does this mess get in here?

After breakfast, and cleaning, we head out for another day of adventure. Hiking is the business at hand.

In the mud, in the lake or ocean, anywhere that we can get dirty and messy to bring it in the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.

Like I said, we work very hard at this. Sometimes, we make a stop at a giant Buffalo. But that is a story for another day.

Then, once we get back home, we get to have a bath and then track in wet dog smell. Oh, the aroma is beyond comprehension when it is mixed with dog hair and dirt and mud already inside. As well, sometimes Digby rolls in stinky and or gross things and they are not caught right away.  Didn’t Girl Person just clean this place? No matter. She needs something to do.

Guess sometimes she has too much to do when she forgets to put away our toys. Or clean up Deputy Digby Pancake’s drool. So she just decided to forget the way this place looks to persons and make it giant dog house.

Sheets on the furniture, towels on the floor to catch Deputy Digby’s drool everywhere.

In an effort to keep this place from being a mess, it looks like a mess which makes my head spin. Then, we have to go outside to get away from the mess, which gets us dirtier, contributing to the mess, and so on and so forth. As you can imagine, it takes much work and adventure to be able to keep up our our perfect mess, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This year’s trip is going to be over before we know it. Will we remember the dirt? The mess? The times that the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV was not in order? I doubt it. What we will remember is being together, traveling to 48 states and 48 rescues in one year and the privilege we had to do this. We will look back on our pictures and remember the fun, the people we met and the places we went. So maybe then, and only then will we really appreciate what a Perfect Mess this was. This is My Perfect Mess.  What is yours?

I think, as Sheriff, that messes are something to celebrate.  Why?  Because we all have our own, and if you say you do not have a mess, I know it is not the truth, and…You. Are. Arrested. I can guarantee that your house was not clean when you got up this morning.  I can guarantee that it will be a mess this afternoon, tonight and the morning again.  But what is great about messes is that is somehow it unites us all. If you think you have the perfect mess, well, then how about sharing it with STAINMASTER for a chance to win some free stuff?  Right now, they are having a contest called #MyPerfectMess. I know you are messy unless you live in a museum, and if you do, I can sell you a picture of me. But anyway. How can you enter the contest? Listen up.

You can use social media, because you follow us, and that is a great thing. Post YOUR Perfect Mess on Instagram by using the hashtag #MyPerfectMess and tagging @STAINMASTER in the caption.  Or, visit the STAINMASTER Facebook page to upload a picture of your perfect mess there.  But what can you win? Not my handsome, that’s for sure. But you could be one of three winners to receive free @STAINMASTER flooring for one room in your house PLUS a $500 gift card. Yeah, pretty pawsome.

So you have an assignment today. Look at your mess. Think about how you can celebrate it. And then, reflect on my handsome. Ready? Go!

    Boys will be boys! It is what y’all do, make messes that is….and if y’all are perfect, then y’all have perfect messes! And since Sheriff Brickle is handsome, y’all have perfect, handsome messes! Not to mention y’all have had perfectly miserable nasty wet rainy weather during the past couple of weeks at the least! It isn’t any wonder that y’all have a perfect mess! And y’all have a smaller place than Florida in which to make your perfect mess too! I think most of us understand your situation perfectly!
