Thursday I was up before the pups woke at 5:30am getting my morning jobs done as I had to work in the morning instead of the afternoon.
Jobs done and off to work I go!
Brave little pups did not even squeak, I'd have hollered the place down if it was done to me. Steph and Phil stayed on after for a sandwich tea and let me see Mav and Nancy two of their dogs.
I am informed it will now be another 3 weeks at least before I receive the registrations. :(
Little did we know it but Friday was going to be a horrible day to start with...
I pointed out that I had requested this was not done until after the 7th August. The person I had spoken had said they had done this, but total despair they had decided they would work to the original schedule. :( So I asked how they planned to break up the concrete, and was told they'd bring a machine....
After a bit of thought Paul said he would lift the old concrete up by hand as it would be quieter.
It has taken Friday and Saturday to take up all the old concrete path! The garden looks a mess which I am not happy about.
On a happier note the pups weren't worried by Paul breaking up the concrete, and so should not have any problems later in life when going shooting.
I always make sure bangs and loud noises are something the pups are ok with but if they were not I'd get the CDs Something Scarey & Something Noisy.
Usually when noisy bangs like fireworks go off, I chuck something across the room and make it into a retrieving game or allow them to play in some way, so they then think of the noise as a signal that something exciting will happen. (Hope you like the selfies).
