I've finally managed to get close enough to Dylan (black dog on the left) and his friend to take a decent picture.
I think it helped that Edward and Hayley accompanied me to the little corner where the new dogs were hiding out.
Edward also vouched for me, but since I don’t speak Dog, I’m not quite sure what he said to win the others over. (Edward is the small puppy facing the two large dogs)
I definitely needed the break.
Yesterday was very hectic. The plumbers came to replace my geyser, so I had three strange men trooping in and out of the house for hours. And the work they did was not unobtrusive; and sometimes, it was downright loud.
Baby was also home all day (school only reopened for the second term today). Add the fact that it was a normal work day, with web sites to update, articles to write, interviews to set up and I felt like I was going crazy.
But now it’s all finished – we have a spanking brand new geyser and hot water pressure is just fantastic.
I also feel a sense of accomplishment for getting one more big job done, in the great house renovation project.
And Baby is back in school today, so the house is quieter.
As for Dylan and his friend, I’ve decided to help them recover from whatever trauma they’ve survived, and then decide whether I keep them or send them to my mother.
Now I just have to decide what to name Mr Brown here. At least, I think it is a Mr.
