What we are doing while they are building and hammering next door

Well we still have all paws crossed for our pal Snickers and of course for all of dog and cat and hammie pals that need our help. Archie has been having trouble walking because he won't uncross his legs( he nearly fell down the stairs twice and it takes him HOURS to pee) On top of that they have gutted the house next door and are rebuilding it and putting on a new roof. Now we love to take charge of these things and tell everyone whether they are doing a good job or not...and of course the only way to do that??? BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK BARK ... I mean really how else would they hear us??? But for some reason this bothers PL1+2 to have us take charge of all the construction workers for 8 hours a day , everyday, until they finish the project....so this is what happens.. they put these things on us..... they are gentle leaders and T Touch nose bands( I am demonstrating the gentle leader and Arch the T touch) What is really funny is that all of a sudden we think that the boys are doing a good job without it..........






For some stupid reason PL2 thinks these are the greatest things in the history of the world........

Whoa. Mom has never seen the T-Touch band before. Personally, the 3 of us in the pack don't see the need for them. Here you are doing a good thing, helping out the guys so they don't mess up, and then PL2 works some hocus pocus and now the workers have no guidance! We just hope they manage to get it done right without your help!
Hugs
Sunny

ps Jamie here. Isn't that amazing? Who knew? Not I! Apparently I havent kept up with T-Touch very much lately. Cool

Mango said...

T-touch? Humph. Sounds like more torcher from those training people. How are those constructions guys going to get anything done without your coaching?

Slobbers,
Mango

We can not imagine how the construction workers are getting along with snoopervision.

Mom wants to know where to get one of those t-touch bands but we can't imagine what Piper would need it.

Oskar said...

Hmm, this seems to be a violation of your right to supervise. I would lodge a formal complaint.

Joe Stains said...

OMDOG! this makes me SO GLAD that I don't really have a snooter :)

Lorenza said...

Personally love the pic of the two of you with the nose bands. That's because it's not me, of course.

RILEY AND STAR said...

What's wrong with barking? That's how you say, Good job guys! Take those silly things off! But don't tell your mommy we said that.

Luv,
Riley and Star.

Kess And Her Mama said...

This is the first time I've come across a T-Touch band. Why wouldn't PL2 want the 2 of you to supervise construction is beyond me. Sounds like you were doing such a great job too...Humans!

Maggie and Mitch said...

A t-touch nose band? We've never heard of these before! Do we want one, guys?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hmm....Mumsie said something like a TURN A KIT might be just as easy...frankly, I'm just ignorin' her...she had a bunch of versed and fentanyl yesterday when they operated on her Old Finger and I'm pretty sure she lost a ton of brain cells...

How in the world are ya supposed to manage the workers if you can't bark??? Sheesch...do they have bubbles by their heads with words in them like Mango's workers?...Evil Rick always does....

Need to go and medicate Mumsie...it makes her go to sleep and we can do what we want...

Kisses...Laciegirlie

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You poor pups. That looks so sad.. You are just warning those people to stay way.. Get well soon Archie..

Dewey Dewster said...

Ugh......we got similar restraining devices ta quell any barkin' we might think about when we go ta Florida next month....seems like there's people that actually DO NOT LIKE BARKING DOGS....can ya imagine that ????
Much to our dismay, our Gram got us soft muzzles plus in addition ta that Toby also got a PetSafe No Bark collar which he has been testing out before we leave Pa.....fer some strange reason, he has been much quieter lately...

Yep...we're crossin' our paws again fer Snickers....hopefully she will be OK....'n soon too.

Oh Arch...we heard that the 2 of ya are off carbs.....bummer....my man....bummer......but ask fer cow parts fer a snack....they are better than biscuits any day....the ones Gram gets are almost 4 feet long 'n she cuts 'em inta pieces....we only get one piece when we're good....which of course should be every night... but fer some strange reason isn't....we're plannin' an uprisin' ta get more.....

Lacy said...

w00fs, hope mama not read this, me not want nuffin on my nosie, me likes to bark..at cats and squeerls and kids and etc..

b safe,

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're sorry. It looks like some sort of torture system to us. And all you were doing was trying to help. And doing what just comes natural (to some of us).

Hopefully those construction workers will know what to do in your silence. We have our doubts.

Consolingly,
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Niamh said...

I can't imagine why your PLs do not appreciate your hard work supervising and inspecting the construction next door. Terriers are supposed to be alert and you two are just doing your job.

Your friend,
Niamh

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hi A and A
I heard that barking all the way over here. I heard you yelling at them to keep it down so you can paws for miss snickers. I'll tell PL1 and PL2. Hmm I've seen that gentle leader on Tula but what's a t touch? I'm gonna have to look it up. Wait.. maybe not.. mom might wanna buy one.

Great weather this week.! I hope you got out? Oh.. mom doesn't share. no pizza for me. Can you bark her a message?

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh my. Now there';s a t-touch band? What is it for? More info please. Mommy swears by the gentle leader (on Hootie) too. Normally he pulls and almost strangles himself, but with the gentle leader he is polite. I USUALLy don't need such a thing.
XX-BabyRocketDog

I HATE, hate, H-A-T-E the gentle leader. It makes me behave. In fact when the mommy even mentions it I run for cover. Once on I am good as gold and sometimes sulk. Why do they try to contain my natural livliness?? Why?

Eric said...

Oh shucks. I can see you have the no barking devices on and it sends you all a zzzzzzzz.Drats. Does the same to me too.How's a dog to stay alert when he's sleeping all the time?

Mom says to tell you if anybloggie gets in touch with you and wants to get the T Touch bands we will wag over and order for them no problem :)

Wiry wags and a few loud barks, (did some for you two too!) Eric xxxxxxxxxxx
