A few months, Ben puked up chili in the middle of the night. It was in the carpet and soaked in his mattress. Bissell to the rescue. Our dog once peed on the kids bed. This week was tough for us. Our dog Rocko got diarrhea in the middle of the night. Twice. Then, he puked. All of it on our carpet. Try getting dog diarrhea out of the carpet at 2 in the morning without a steam cleaner. And if you don't have a lot of carpet in your house, it'll still come in handy for mattresses or car upholstery. The other day at school Noah climbed in the trunk area of the van while we waited for Ben and Emily. Then he told me he pooped a little in his pants. I checked when we got out of the car and saw a smear on his butt. Weird. Then, I was loading groceries in my car the other day and saw an identical smear in my van. Nice. I smelled it just to be sure. Yep, poop.
Seriously, three times this week we've said thank goodness for our Bissell!
