Have you ever done a project and tried to NOT get help from your Pekes? I had to paint my kitchen cabinets. It has to be done every 3 years or so to keep them looking good. I always think it will take a few hours-- it took two days.
The curtains came down (and different ones went back up). Chaos ensued.
Cranberry was my supervisor-- who would know if she heped paint! She's white, the cabinets are white. But, she stayed to let me know what I was supposed to do. Piddle pads make great paint drop "cloths."
Every thing-- doors and drawers-- were propped open so the paint would dry and nothing would stick. It was a tedious project.
Scooter insisted on helping. With his head. He usually uses his tail, but he decided the head was better this time. Don't you love his new look?
Max stayed out of the kitchen completely. He wanted to stay where it was simple, on his ottoman, in front of the window, with a toy. He was a happy, content boy.
Scooter started out in the family room-- with Coco. But, you know he joined me later.
It was finally done. Doors and drawers were closed, chaos left and order returned. And the ladders and paint can and brushes were all put away (until I begin more trim work in the other rooms).
