So I was sitting down to a tasty slice of buttery raisin toast goodness when I realised I'd forgotten my insulin.

Baby brained me waddled back into the kitchen to grab it, and Gus (aka Angry Dog) ninja'd his way onto the coffee table and stole my treat!

Naturally, it fell butter side down, and chaos ensued. I growled at Gus, Hirdy (the epileptic Spitz) started in with the barking (he just loves to dob on his brother) and Angry dog proceeded to drag said buttery bread around in a snarling, spitting, chewing mess. (Imagine the Taz Devil from Saturday morning cartoons with added sultanas).

Cut to now, and my rented hardwood floors have three separate grease stains that I can't shift. I tried googlies, but their solution came with a serve of fail. Any Martha Stewart wannabes got a handy tip?


And no, at the end of this, he didn't even eat the toast.

Diluted metholated spirits & hot water - can't recall the proportions though, but my parent's floors come up beautifully!

I think you have broken dogs.  Mine would never allow a stolen treat to ever hit the floor!   tongue.gif

Thanks for the tip, ladies  original.gif

Casime, my dogs are a bit 'special', but the main problem is that the angry dog is missing the vast majority of his teeth, so he needs to put his treasures down in order to gum them into submission.

He does, however, still have the pointy ones at the front, so no-one (including the epileptic Spitz) is game to get too close when a treasure has been claimed.

Sultanas are not good for dogs. Actually, most dogs really don't like them. My cat however thinks they are wonderful if they are in Christmas pudding. Not sure why....

Stack some dry bicarb on top, and leave for 24 hours - then vacuum the lot up. Its supposed to absorb oils from everything.
