Walmart Sunrise

I did something this morning that I never thought I'd do..
I watched the sun rise from the Walmart parking lot.. let me explain.

At about 5 this morning, I got a phone call I hope nobody ever gets... "Can you help me? My dog is, uhh, leaking". Yes, Harrison apparently had a very upset tummy and was having an "accident". I rushed over to Jeremy's apartment in my pajamas (boxer shorts and a very large tshirt) to help.

There was mess everywhere.. literally, everywhere. And "leaking" was definitly a good word to use to describe the poor sick pup.
I jumped in the car and raced to the 24-hour Walmart to get some carpet cleaner and lysol.. lots of it.

It wasn't until I was pulling into the parking lot that I realized I hadn't looked in a mirror. I could tell I probably looked horendous by the looks I was getting from Walmart employees of all people.. and you know they've probably seen some pretty bad stuff. I mean, it is a Walmart, in Mississippi. I got double-takes and a few pitying looks from employees stocking the shelves.
Anyways, I grabbed several bottles of cleaner and a whole package of paper towels and when I walked outside, there was a gorgeous sunrise. I took a deep breath and knew it was all going to be ok.

Somehow I still made it to work on time and Harrison is apparently feeling better. I have no idea what happened. All I know is that I have already had two giant cups of coffee and I can say that I have appreciated a sun rise.. at Walmart.
healthy harrison
I also want to note that Jeremy did clean up majority of it and I'm so proud of him for doing such a diligent job and not getting sick himself.. :)


  1. Awww poor pup! You are a good person to run to a 24 hour WalMart to get the clean up materials!

  2. You're a good friend - to do this early in the morning. I'm glad the puppy is better now!!!

    This just goes to show that the sunrise can be spectacular no matter where you are!
