My name is Duncan and I am a hoarder

So before company came the other day my mom said "What stinks around here?"  We had already done a good bit of cleaning but Ms. Nose Almost As Good As Mine was still smelling something.  After going around and around in a dog like sniffing pattern that actually did us proud, puppers, she determined it was my toy box.  Go figure, she had a problem with "eau de toy basket."
 
There is no such thing as too many toys.
 
Personally, I did not feel that it was necessary to do an inventory.  I knew exactly every single thing that was in there and where it was in the aging process.  Everything was just fine as far as I was concerned.

Perfectly aged treat remnants.  Delicious!
 
I had stockpiled a good many treat parts in my basket to save for a rainy day.  You never know when mom or dad might get stuck at work longer than expected leaving you needing an afternoon snack or  pre-dinner appetizer.  Again, I don't know why she was so surprised to find my stash.  I knew exactly what was in there and where it was in the ripening process. 

I don't see anything in here that I am willing to part with, Mom.
 
Imagine my shock when I realized she was going to do some "weeding out." 
 
Listen mom, I don't comment on the fact that you're keeping 62 zillion pairs of shoes in your closet, I see no reason for you to concern yourself with what I keep in my so called closet.  And, by the way, some of your shoes smell way worse than any of my toys, just so you know.
 
Thank heavens I have had so much practice pulling things out of gift bags ... totally came in handy when it came time to pull my toys back out of the "sharing" bag.
 
I did let her wash a few for the sake of having a good smelling house when company arrived. 
 
But that is where I drew the line.
 
And the shoe comment totally got dad onboard with my team, which never hurts!

  6. That was YOUR toy box and you worked so hard to get it smelling pawfectly. Tell your mom that you don't snoop in her purse (or do you?) so she should NOT look in your toy box!

  7. Humans!!!!! What is wrong with their sense of smell. They don't like really good smells and then spray the house with that yucky stuff. We just don't understand.

    Glad you could reclaim some of your GOOD stuff.
