Potty Mouth

As we may have mentioned before, cohabitating with Siberians can be a challenge at times.  There's really nothing quite like it and unless you've actually had to deal with it, you probably don't really know what it's like.  It is tolerable with a sense of humor.  Very often, issues will turn into a bit of a battle of wills.  For instance - our powder room toilet has recently become one of those issues.  Toilet, loo, reading room, throne, water can call it what you want.  For us, it's the current battleground!

Let's start with the perpetrator:

That's right - that's none other than our strongest willed pack member - Shanuk.  Recently, Shanuk decided that the two pristine, regularly cleaned water bowls aren't desirable.  Instead, he has chosen the toilet in the powder room as his water bowl of choice.  Aside from the fact that this is not acceptable for obvious reasons, it's also not good when the seats slam back down on porcelain when his royal highness is finished.  BANG!  You get the point.  So, I set out to make it impossible for him to continue this new bad habit.  Several brands of heavy duty tape and numerous "child-proof" locks later the score is bleak.  Shanuk 5....Mom 0.  BUT NOT THIS TIME!  I introduce to you my new secret weapon......

HA!  It works!  Unless he grows some opposable thumbs he's out of luck.  I now present to you a very annoyed Shanuk:

Sorry guy.  I win!   :)
