vent war

And so it begins! Today the crew arrived and started taking down our deck and sun room. At times we were out of power (no internet either), and at other times the whole house shook. The deck didn't want to go smoothly. I'm glad they started work though. It's already June and we've been talking about all this since last year.

Surprisingly during all that I did get some spinning in. The pups are a little freaked by all that noise. We went out for a while, but it's hot and humid, very uncomfortable. We did get a good game of Frisbee in, early in the morning.

When it's really hot outside, we all gather around the vents somewhere in the house, the pups more so. Happy was sleeping, when Denny came and disturbed his peace:

May 3-vent-war-1

May 3-vent-war-2

May 3-vent-war-3

May 3-vent-war-4

May 3-vent-war-5

And the winner is: once again - Denny

May 3-vent-war-6

What can I say...Happy and Denny are just too darn cute!
Good luck with the renovations. It can be exciting looking forward to the finished product, but if you're like me I'm wondering when will this end. One thing always leads to another. Thank God for Spinning!

Poor Happy, one little nip would put denny in his place but I think Happy's a gentle giant!
Hope we get to see these renos, I take it you are getting a new deck?

So funny. Reminded me of me and the BF fighting over who is going to sleep closest to the AC.

Happy is just too nice and kind, and Denny is wicked and cute!! I am glad the renovations have started and I hope they are going really well.

That's so funny! I am amazed that Denny is still so small in comparison to Happy. But it does look like Happy is asserting himself a little more.....

We need to get Sadie and Happy together to commiserate about their pesky little brothers.

Sadie sleeps with me on the bed and (like me) she takes her time to wake up in the morning. She used to spend some time stretching and easing into her day.

Now, though...the minute Luka hears us stirring (he sleeps on the floor) he jumps up on the bed and pounces on Sadie. The darn dog is ready to play at 4:30am! And if Sadie doesn't cooperate he pounces on me.

I've very happy Luka is here, but I do miss my leisurely mornings! I think Sadie does, too.

Denny is such a little thug! I love watching how you're observing all the behaviour between them.

Happy: You may not have noticed this, but you're bigger than Denny. You should sit on him and squish him when he acts up like that. Plus he looks like he'd make a good cushion. Good luck!

That's so funny! Our new puppy also loves the vents. We came in from one hot walk this week, and he got only as far as the vent beside the front door! Our old dog never really cared for them.

Your dogs crack me up!

Happy's childhood is being replayed by Denny, I think. When Denny is too annoying Happy just moves away. Sound familiar?
