Tearing Down The Deck

Well folks Dad is busy doing his Christmas baking, then it will Essexmas Cards.  In the middle of all this he is having the deck in the back having new wood put on it. 

Last Sunday, three guys came over and ripped all the wood off the top.  Then they carted it all away.  This coming Sunday, we should have all the wood placed back on top of it.  It should make for a pawsome place to survey my kingdom. 
The Deck Has Seen Better Days

The Deck Wood in the Sand - A Pool Was There
Dad is getting the back yard in shape.  In November the metal frame from the pool that blew out when Great Auntie Essex and Uncle Deacon were around departed our yard.  Sometime in the spring we will have grass put in the back.  Dog Dad is telling me how well I walk on the leash, except for the spot where me and a boxer bark like luna-pups at each other.  The house is pretty quiet now, as I don't bark very much, except at the park.  Great Auntie Essex is missed as she was a pawsome Watch Dog.  Fortunately, Dog Dad and I keep each other company.
Things are getting done around the house.

The yard is beginning to take shape. Looking like everything will be ready when the puppy comes home to you this summer. Have you met or seen the pictures of Ramses? He and Charm will make some beautiful tri babies! Charm is a little shy, but Ramses is gorgeous to look at with a personality to match. A real lover... You guys should come up for a visit to meet them.

Star's pups are due on 12/26, only 3 more weeks. We are hoping to be able to bring our puppy home in late February and the excitement is growing by the day. Lots of visits to the pet store so we'll have everything we need for him when he does come.

Stay well friends!!! Look forward to pictures of you in the new back yard and deck.

It always be nice to get things done. I find it makes the people feel much better.
I bet Essex still barking away in heaven.

The new deck will look really good and with grass, the yard will be a lovely place for playing. We're glad everyone is keeping busy and keeping each other's spirits up. It's so cold here no one wants to go outside--2 days of wind chill warnings with a wind chill temperature of -40 C which is the same as 40 below. Brrrr. We wish we were in Florida!!

Hi Sherman and DogDad!
Right now your deck looks like a bunch of balance beams! Are you learning gymnastics? Looks like your yard is going to be pawsome when the work is all done. I am glad you are taking care of each other. Looks like we are not going running, so I will see you in chat in the morning.
Hugs,
Skye
