The house building is up but not totally completed. The good news is that the builders got the roof up and all the insulation has been put in. It’s a good thing that daddy was there to watch them because they were putting the super thick insulation on the walls instead of on the attic. Daddy ordered 8” thick insulation for the attic because where our property is it gets really cold and it snows during the winter and the thicker insulation should help keep the house warm during these times. The builders had already installed the insulation so they had to take it all down and re-do it using the right stuff.
One thing daddy did not include in our new house is a fireplace. He said he didn’t want to mess around with chopping wood and the house filling up with smoke. When we were cleaning out Grandpa’s house he had a fireplace and we used it all the time but daddy is right they are messy and require a lot of work to keep the fire burning. The humans also discuss putting in a pellet fireplace but after all discussions daddy just didn’t want one. Momma says if she gets too cold she will climb back in bed and turn on her electric blanket and have Puffy and me snuggle with her – I like that idea and will be more than happy to snuggle.
It's raining where daddy is at and that might be an issue. He is supposed to catch the train on Friday night and arrive in California early Saturday morning. However since there were lots of big construction trucks coming and going from our property daddy chose not to have the driveway graveled because it would have been a waste of time and money as the trucks would have ruined it anyways. If he does not find someone to come out and gravel the driveway before the monsoon season arrives then it might become impossible for him to get his truck on and off of the property. Keep your paws crossed that daddy is able to come home.
I forgot to tell you that daddy had a drain put in the laundry room floor and that is where we are going to have pee-pee pads left for us to do our business on during the super cold days and nights. Momma thinks having the drain in the floor was a great idea as it will make clean up easy should somebody piddle on the tile.
One of the benefits of moving is that momma is cleaning out the freezer so tonight she cooked some tri-tip, put it in the food processor and chopped it fine, then mixed it with our normal dinner and boy was it delicious! We ate every bite and probably could have even made room in our tummies for more – BOL, BOL.
Well got to go watch momma pack up some more stuff.
Hugs and kisses,

How exciting the house is up. Very smart idea to put that floor drain in the laundry room, you have a smart daddy. Enjoy the MEATZ!
Thats great Coco! You know MEAT can't be BEAT BOL!
I want some! Wanna share?
I hope your daddy can get home, Coco. I know you miss each other. It was a good idea to go without the fireplace. They're furry nice, but a lot of work. And around here they're pretty much illegal anymore. New Mexico could go the same direction. Your house is gonna be toasty warm without it!
I see things are moving along with the new place.Kudos to Daddy! Gravel when done with construction... It truly would have been ruined....
Turned HOT here 90's..... so now, every 2nd. night we have to water the vegetable garden for 2 hours.
Tri-tip! Yummy! Gma shared some T-bone with me last night. She was too tired to cook some venison for me. 3 wks. running basement stairs without a fridge in kitchen. They hope to buy one tomorrow night. (Don't know how long before it will be delivered)Gma messed herself up and is a crabby abby!Sure hope she is over it before my birthday. I want New Cookies,maybe some cake....Of course,ice cream.....Stay cool,pals!
Human-sis has a propane fireplace and no mess.... It is beautiful and nice and toasty.....Our house has no room for one or it would be on my Christmas list....
Hugs and kisses,mazy
