Bangity Bang!

Some of you might remember me posting last September about our old house getting a makeover. If not, you can read all about it here. Well we got a new roof and gutters from the insurance company cause the ice storms messed up our house. Then mom decided she wanted to make the house look even better with new siding. Sadly, the siding men couldn't work on our house last fall cause they were too busy. But today they showed up and started banging around and tearing stuff off the house and making so much noise that me and Banjo have been barking at them until mom yelled at us. Can you believe that? Those siding men are making lots more noise then us, but she isn't telling them to "shut up"! Geesh.

Here the guys are nailing up insulation before putting the siding on. Mom says this will make our house warmer next winter.

Me and Banjo can only look out the back door.
We can't go outside cause the noisy men are working.

Mom told us some terrible news about our sunny window box.
It is going to be taken down! We only have a day or two to enjoy it before it is removed by the siding guys. This makes me very sad cause I love taking naps in the sun when it's too cold to go outside. This is another reason for me to hate the noisy siding men!

Forever? The window box is coming down forever? Noooo! I wonder what's going to happen to us now. We have noisy working men INSIDE our home. I'm scared. We need to support each other through this my furiends.

Better enjoy your box. Maybe mom will get you guys something better in return?

Draco and his Mom said...

No more window box!!!!how horrid. We pupsters must have our warm sunny spots. I bet your mom will find you somewhere else to sun. Moms are like that:)

Schwang said...

Quick! Get some sun baths in soon. I'm sure you will enjoy the new things too.

No more window box?? How dare those strange noise makers take away your sunbathing spot??
I guess you will have to find a new one. Sorry.


Santa and Minnie said...

Why are they taking down the window box? Are they replacing it with a better and cosier place for you guys? Well, enjoy while you can.

The Doxie Diaries said...

How sad to lose your window box. Will you get something else to replace it? I guess the next best thing is to find a ray of sunshine coming through a window. I hope we can be friends!

Woof Y'all,

They are taking your sun box?!!?! How awful!! But I guess the silver lining in this situation is that next year when the snow comes again you will be even warmer on the inside!

Just watch where they keep the tools - you can build another window box when they're not home. They'll love that. :)

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

That's terrible about your window box!! Will they put it back, when they are done?

Woofs and Kisses!

Bruschi said...

What a tragedy! The window box is coming down?! I would be barking at those siding men too if they were removing my sun spot!!!

Oh dear, you need to find another spot for those sunny naps. We have lots of windows at the back of the house and Phantom always finds a sunny spot. Too bad about all the banging but it will be beautiful when it is done. Hope you can get out and enjoy the warmer weather soon.
