Labor Intensive

You may have noticed my increased absence in DogBlogville over the last few weeks, or mebbee 'cuz it's summer you got better things to do than read about the life and times of this Chocolate dawg. Either way, I'm not one to point paws but it's all my PU's fault I've been absent because of all the work that's been goin' on in what useta be my favorite room of the house ~ the kitchen. I know what you're thinkin' "that project started way back in April" and you'd be correct if'n you're considerin' when Frankentree met his fate. Things settled down a bit and then on July 2nd, my Uncle John came over and along with Dad, removed everythin' but the kitchen sink. Then I guess you could also say the sink gained it's independence from our kitchen on July 4th. 

My floppy ears sat straight up last weekend when I heard the PUs sayin' we were gettin' down to crunch time ~ but just as quickly went back down again when I realized there were no foodables involved in this supposed "crunch time". They were talkin' about gettin' everythin' painted so that Mr. Floor Man could begin his part of the job. They quickly broke out their brushes and rollers and paint cans and rags and ladders and set to their intended task.

I, of course, supervised.

Why is it that any time you're workin' around wet paint,
it's nearly impossible to not get some on ya?

I gotta admit, the whole work thing really bores me. 

*Contrary to a rumor that Mom started, I did not - I REPEAT DID NOT
try to eat any paint. See the absence of paint on my tongue?" I rest my case

When bored, I tend to find things to entertain myself with. Like, for instance, the paint rag that Mom dangles from her back pocket. I really did her a favor, 'cuz I think she needed to get outta that fume-filled room.....

.....and I, my ownself needed a smoke break.

Bein's how today many of you are celebratin' Labor Day by havin' the day off, I'll belabor this point no longer and finish by sayin' that we are finally startin' to see a light at the end of the tunnel....

.... and hope to soon be showin' some before and after pics!

Have a safe and wonderful Labor Day!
Chester ;0=)

Hey Chester! Looks like y'all have been busy, so I totally understand your absence in the blog world. Can't wait to see the after pics - always adds to my determination to do the same to our kitchen one of these days! =)

Enjoy your day, and hopefully the two leggers will take a break long enough to entertain you for a little while and throw some steak on the grill!

I hope that job gets done soon!

Sorry the crunch time wasn't of the tasty variety dood! Maybe next time. I still say you're the best snoopervisor that money, erh dog food, can buy. Can't wait to see the after photos of your new eatery!

Hello, I just have a quick question to ask you. I see that your dog has no collar in these pictures. Normally what kind of dog collars do you use? Thank you

Hehehe. We are about to celebrate the one year anniversary of when Master started work on the downstairs bathroom so we know all about those long and drawn out constructions.

But it seems to me, being without the foodable room is pretty dire. Hope it gets operational soon.
