Doggie House Guest Overstays Welcome
Have you ever had a guest who just won’t take a hint? The Murray family feels your pain. They have been trying to get rid of their house guest for the past week, but so far they’ve had no luck in getting him out the door.
Cleatus the dog was supposed to stay with the Murrays for a weekend last month. But then Cleatus decided to extend his vacation and two days quickly turned into five.
Once the dog learned that he’d lost his job back home (apparently he never told anyone he was going on vacation), he pretty much moved into the Murray house.
It’s been nearly seven weeks since he first arrived.
"I need my living room back," said Jan Murray, the matriarch of the Pasadena, CA-based family. "About a week ago I just decided I’d had enough and I stopped with the subtle hints and just flat out told Cleatus he had to go. Nothing. He sits around watching TV on the couch all day."
According to Murray, the family even tried moving all of Cleatus’s stuff out onto the front yard while he was out one day site seeing. That didn’t deter him — he just moved in under the porch for a few days and snuck back into the house when someone accidentally left the back door open a crack.
