A quick update on what is going on here in New Mexico. The Stuffie Rancho has been shut down by the FED’s who said Puffy was in violation of the trade marks. We were able to rescue one stuffie that the Papillion gang had sent for harvesting but all others were taken and are being held someplace by the FED’s pending the trial that Puffy will have to go to next year. We want to thank our Papillion gang for believing in us and want to let them know that their stuffie is being taken care of. In fact, it has had several babies and we will be sending them back to you as soon as they are old enough to travel. Coco is still chomping on the HUGE cookies that you sent (yes, she claimed both of them – BOL). I also would like to thank our good pal DFB and AZS for the beautiful Halloween card – that really made us smile.
In regards to how the New Mexico house is coming along, things are not going very well. Daddy’s handyman was supposed to have had the dry wall hung, mudded and taped before we arrived back in New Mexico. He had almost four weeks to get it all done and when daddy called him the day before we left California, the handyman had informed daddy that it was almost completed. Turns out that was incorrect as it wasn’t anywhere close to being done, plus it was done incorrectly.
The handyman ended up quitting the job and daddy had to hire some other people to come in and fix most of what was wrong and try to finish the job. The job isn’t finished but the second crew has full time jobs so they had to go back to their regular work and momma and daddy are going to have to finish everything up.
The weather here is getting cold so snow should start falling soon. It is important to get the code enforcers out here to do the final electricity and plumbing sign off before the area gets snowed in, therefore the humans are working as much as they can to get things done. As of yet, they still haven’t gotten one room completely done and since there are 13 rooms in the house counting momma’s walk-in closet, there is much more to do.
Puffy and I had to have baths yesterday because Puffy found a pile of some kind of poop and rolled in it. He was smiling when momma caught a sniff of his “new” smell and put us in the sink for bathing. He wasn’t smiling too much afterward, but then too neither was I.
Momma says that doing a project as big as building a house from the ground up is hard, tiring and should be standard grounds for divorce as working with your spouse is something only the brave should do – BOL.
We miss you all and hope everyone is doing well. Hugs and kisses,
You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Hope you are able to keep warm and your house is finished before the first snow fall.
Thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way.
Thank you for the update! Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.
Oh jeeze...your poor Momma and Daddy!!!! I hope things get fixed real fast!
Aw, Coco, I'm sorry evfurrything is so hard fur your pawrents. Your mommy is right. My mommy's daddy was a general contractor and remodeled their house two times, and even just doing THAT was a huge strain. You have to help your pawrents be brave, and make them laugh when you can. Someday it will all be worth it!
Hope your house is able to get finished up soon!
