Roofers, Trials, Too Many Distractions

Hello Bloggerland,

Upon my mother's return from her vacation, I had assumed that she would spend all her time with ME. However, that has not been the case. It appears that a new roof was needed for our house. I didn't really mind the water leaking in occasionally, but, apparently, it made my mother rather distraught.

To remedy this situation, a roofing company was hired to perform the needed repairs. Well, they showed up on Thursday and Katie, Zorra, and I just had to voice our displeasure with these strange men crawling all over our house!! All three of us were commenting at once, since we all had something to say.

It is very tough work watching all these strangers beat on our roof. At times, I was epecting them to fall through the ceiling. I wanted to have a taste of a roofer butt!!

It is now Wednesday and they are cleaning up their tools, etc. I am not sure what we will do during the day now. I guess we will have to resort to our old habits of napping and lounging, witing for Mother to complete her work so we can play.

Katherine and Zorra competed in a USDAA trial over the weekend. Neither of the girls did very well. Mother didn't mind all that much, as Katie was trying to explain that she was so tired from barking all day. I am not sure that Mother was too thrilled about that explanation.

We are all going to do another trial this weekend. I cannot wait, as I am entered. Oh, how I will run around the course. Dogs and people will be amazed!!

Hey doesn't matter about the trials if you were all busy keeping an eye on those strange men on your roof. Shame they didn't fall through really and that you were deprived of roofer butt.

When scary people come into my place to fix things (as they did Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of this week) it gives me terrible gas. That's one way to scare them off!

Good luck in your trial!

Good thing you were there to bark at those roofers. That's exactly what we would do. In fact, that;s exactly what we do ALL THE TIME when any strangers invade our turf.
