Anyone who knows us know that we love our dogs (after all, we have five of them!).Â Beegee is our bassett hound, Gizmo is our min-pin, Shrimp is a mini-wiener (or as we say in the UK, a sausage dog), T-Rex is the first of our chihuahuas, with Arriba being our second. So I thoughtÂ I might take this opportunityÂ to post some gratuitous pictures of how the doggies are coping with the renovations around here…
In the first picture, Beegee was checking out why Rick was making so much noise.Â Although the door was closed, she looked through the open wall to see him demo-ing the first of the foyer walls. In the second picture, you can see first hand the dusty doggy paw prints that we have all over the house, including the furniture.Â Thanks Shrimp and Giz!
The first picture on the left shows our two adorable chihuahuas, T-Rex and Arriba (a.k.a. rex and reebs) basking in the sun on our porch.Â The railings are a little too big to keep these 6 pound doggies contained! Rex can quite easily slip through the bars, and Reebs is so small she can fit under them.Â The picture on the right shows Shrimp and Giz (with T-Rex looking startled behind) using the rolled up carpet in our bonus room as a ready-made jungle gym.Â
On the same sunny afternoon on the porch, Beegee was not able to fit through the porch railings like her smaller counterparts, making it look like she is imprisoned. Looks like she’s taking it all in her stride though! The second picture shows Beegee and Giz (with Shrimp close behind) checking out our next door neighbors.
Who can resist yet another cute picture of our smallest chihuahua, Arriba. Here she is posing for the camera amidst her first escape attempt.Â And lastly, here are the chihuahuas relaxing after a long, hard day’s work at renovating the house.Â Gotta love how they use Beegee as a pillow.
Aren’t our dogs the cutest???
