New Front Door

Wow look what some strange guy came and did to our old front door! It smells like new fiberglass instead of old wood and steel, and when the storm door closes, it closes fast so you better be going! I of course had to be on guard for anything odd so while all this was going on the girls (Emmy, Josie, and my mom Clancy) slept in the den. That guy had a machine that made a heck of a noise, and then he was banging and hammering and nailing and using that noisy machine...! How can we get our beauty sleep around here?

So this is what it looked like after all that hammering and tearing ---- he ran away with our old door! Part of it is lying on the sidewalk. What did he do with the rest of it?

Like, who's going to clean up that mess? That guy sure is going to be in trouble with Mom when she sees this!

I had to come outside and check out the scene after he finished -- I think I scared the guy away! He wasn't such a bad guy anyway, he at least petted me. He kind of reminded us of the guy who plays the janitor character on TV's "Scrubs", only not as weird.

That was on Thursday, and this weekend Dennis has been busy painting the door and each side section dark brown. Looks like the old door now! Now there aren't any more drafts coming through which will keep us all warmer in the winter for sure, and the humans don't have to use that ugly yellow wood caulk in the cracks on the side sections anymore. Wonder what Mom will have done to the house next?

And I'm feeling better now that I've been on my antibiotics after the Lyme infection 2 weekends ago. I've been playing in the backyard and running around with Josie after rabbits.

I've also been awarded a Rockin' Dog Blogger award from Butchy. Ohh no, that means dumb old Mom isn't going to be able to figure out how to put it on my blog here. She might need my help --- I can do it Mom! At least I can give her hints, and more hints on who to give the award to... thanks for thinking about us Butchy! :)

Congratulations on your award Rudy! This renovation stuff takes time. It's so hard to be patient sometimes while living with all the confusion and dirt *sigh*

Love ya lots,

You are a great watchdog! Is there anything you CAN'T do?

Hi Rudy,

We know what construction is like, having lived through major renovations a few years ago, and we sympathize with you.

If your mothr can send me her email address, my mother will send her the info that she used to get my Rockin' Dog Blog award posted and maybe some other things that will help her.

I don't think my father, Bandit, would like you dating my mom, Molly. Dad doesn't look like anyone you would mess with.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
