In our house our loads are: Whites, Darks, Colours and Pets. Pet load includes towels dirty from wiping feet, towels dirty from cleaning up cat urine (our one cat likes to pee beside the box) and babies that have been buried in the yard.
Yesterday I opened the washer after the pet load and was greeted with stuffing. I guess my stitches in big Gator Baby didn't hold in the wash and he opened and spilled his guts all in the machine. Love is standing at the washing machine re-stuffing the dog's favourite toy when you really want to throw it away, but you know they don't make this toy anymore, so you should try and save it.
