My World is Upside Down!

I don't know what's going on. I'm confused, disoriented, scared and depressed. Everything in my dawg house has been moved around. At first it was kind of fun - lots of open space to run around in. The openness made my bark seem louder and more ferocious than usual. The kitten found dust bunnies to chase and was in his glory. Then it happened... Monday night the hallway got crammed with furniture and Mom had to squeeze us in to Leah's room. I heard Dad say he was going to sleep in the trailer. Trailer? We don't have a trailer. What is a trailer anyway??? Tuesday morning my Mom got up, hurried to get ready for work then put Libby and Natty in the trailer. Libby HATED it! She tried to escape but Mom kept putting her back. The trailer was creepy because Mom covered everything in it with comforters. I wondered why and she said her friend Kathy leant us the trailer to live in while our floors are being refinished and she didn't want us to damage anything so she covered it all. Now, why would she think WE would damage anything??? Hmpf! After locking up the cats (BTW - Tommy has decided to be an outside cat since Natty came live with us so his life has gone on without interruption), Mom loaded Ziggy and me in the car and off we went to her job.I don't like going to work. I don't know why my mom has to spend so much time at work but, as she's reminded me soooo many times, it's so she can buy us nice things, like food. Work is very stressful for me. So many people to bark at and bite. Ziggy doesn't mind because he actually likes people outside of our family. Mom's boss makes me a little nervous too because there is this weird, crazy energy coming off of him that put's me on edge. Wednesday when we came home the house STUNK so we all had to sleep in the trailer that night. Thursday the smell didn't seem as bad. Mom couldn't take it though so she tip-toed over the floor to Leah's room, bringing Tommy with her, and they slept with the windows wide open in 40 degree weather all night. Tonight Dad says he's going to his parents' to sleep with Ziggy. Me and the cats will be camping again with Mom. I'm tired, Ziggy is completely exhausted, Libby is beside herself and Mom has a permanent headache from the fumes. No pictures of the chaos but we'll post some pictures of the floor when it's done - this picture was taken after the stain was applied. Sorry we haven't visited anyone this week. Once our house is in order we'll be by to say hello!

It will all be worth it camping out cuz when you can sleep on the new refinished floors, you can run and slide on them....glorious!

Oh, I can SO sympathize on the getting floors done. We had to pack up and move to grandma's while they dried.

This is why I like rugs better!

Chester said...

Deetz has the right idea. You can run and slide right into a wall, well maybe not such a great idea after all. Ok-so do this. take a pillow and tie it around you THEN SLIDE on the new shiny floors.

I know you don't like work but it's much better for you than the stinky fumes.

Pretend you are on safari or sumpthin' till you can get back to home sweet home.

We keep hearing talk about redoing floors here too, and we would have to go to the kennel again for a lot of days. Hope things get back to normal for you soon. There is no place like home.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi Pedro, thank you for your wishes! We've been following you for a bit now, but because I wasn't feeling good, Mom is just now playing catch up on everything!

You're gonna like those new floors, we have shiny floors too and my brother always drags me around on them when we're wrestling for a toy, BOL!

Chi kisses, Lilibell

Poor Pedro, we know what you mean. We dont like change and we don't like new people either. You are better off out of the way of the fumes, your mum is right. Our mum can't even stand the smell of paint.
Don't worry, it will be okay soon and your floors look wonderful.
Wags and kisses, Dinah and Bridget xx

Brownie said...

ugh! how horrible... I hope that the olympic figure skating you'll do soon will make it all up for you!

Deefor said...

Now you'll have new floors to mess up! We have carpet and wood. Wood is harder to mess up but Arrow has figured out how. He just chews off the little pads my mom puts on the chairs. He says he likes the glue.

Too bad about humans and work.

I would be absolutely freaking out if I were you! I hate it when my normal routine gets messed up. You are one brave Chi!
But your floors do look quite nice. I bet they will be fun to do zoomies on when they are done?

Tiles. I like tiles myself. Sooooo cool in summer and in winter I can jump on my sofa.

However it all looks very stylish. Don't dig your claws in too far though.

Great new floors...they will carry lots of new life to the house! I'm sorry that you guys are a little confused.

I get to go to work with my Daddy sometimes...I love his coworkers, and they love me! I hope you will learn to like to go to work with your Mommy. It beats sleeping at home all day long!

Hugs,
CoCo
