I can get into the kitchen, laundry room, half bath area again. Although the washer and dryer are usable, there are no toilet, sinks, counters. However the dog door has been installed on the inside of the house. Today the dogs followed me into that area. Inca and Phoebe looked askance at the new dog door. It has a much neater profile, no huge frame (last one was supposed to be electronic), and the flaps are not clear. Holmes, however, knew that was the dog door and out he went — to the relative freedom of the backyard where he’s not been for a month. Once the ladies saw that the whippersnapper could navigate the new door, they were also out. Note in this photo that the wall has a “peachy tone”. It’s a white wall, but the accent wall is tinting everything around it. By the end of the week, we should be back in the demolition area and the canine gang can once again avail itelf of the pleasures at the back of the house.
Meanwhile, this is day 20 since Phoebe ovulated. Here’s how she looks from overhead. I think her loin area is filling in — a good sign since last pregnancy there was little physical evidence until her fifth week — and she had only two puppies! Today her girth measures 21-1/2″. I’ll measure once a week — I don’t want to annoy her any more than that.
