The blog is defionitely the most up to date, in terms of photos. This reminds me that I need to unload some pictures from my camera and post them.

Barry, the framing crew is all East Indian and their absolutely terrified of the dogs. They don't know what they're missing.

Fortunately, we don't have to worry about island time like my parents did at their cottage. Over there, if there is surf, no work gets done. If there's no surf, the crew is either drunk, hungover or baked. And sometimes all three. The nice thing about building on the mainland is that the crews are here to work.

My buddy was doing what you are doing about ten years ago and had two very large dogs. Real barkers but mush pots in reality. The construction guys realized that all it took was a cookie each at coffee break and the dogs were in heaven, did not bark at them, and did not bother them at any other time. They'd greet them at the gate in the morning and watch them go past in their trucks, then sit on the hills of dirt and supervise till coffee break and they'd be at the picnic table long before the workers go there, waiting patiently. We got quite a kick out of it.

Glad your project is moving right along. Looks like our spate of good weather is about to disappear but you've had a good run up till now.

Take care and crack that whip - make them work harder and faster so you can use your Airstream for camping.

Barry,

Kai and Samm are typical young Labs. I don't know if they're capable of sitting quietly while people are around. The more activity around, the more they want to help!

I bet they'd look really cute wearing little tool belts.

Now that could be a business opportunity. Making dog sized tool belts and hard hats.

There you go Cameron. Make sure you share the profits with Mel.

Hmmmm, I wonder if my nephew is still using his Bob the Builder toys. Those might do the trick!

I didn't have a dog available, but Moe graciously agreed to model the pet tool belt (size small). (Not pictured, the drill, which fell out when he ran down the hall).

That's just because he can't actually use any of the tools, due to his lack of opposable thumbs...

Cats are sneaky, they just want us to think they don't have opposable thumbs.

Looks cute Mel. If I even attempted to put something like that on Smokey Bear I'd be shredded in seconds. What they lack in thumbs they make up for in claws and teeth. They seem to think shredding is just a normal occurrence and once the bleeding is mostly staunched that you are now available to provide goodies and pets.

Barry, that's why Moe was chosen as the model, and not Zoe. Moe was purring the whole time. More than once, I've driven Zoe to the vet with a towel wrapped around my bleeding hand...
