Pawppy is furry angry tonight...
And so is Meowmy, actually. And upset.
Early this morning the swarm of workers returned here to be busy like beavers all day long...patio, 2 sidewalks and the driveway were on the agenda.(Two other sidewalks, two sets of stairs and a lot of prep work already having been done.)
We seem to be getting used to all this, and Pipo goes to the window to watch, MOL!
They spent hours of labor and hard work here over the past week or so, had just left after completing the final pour and smoothing out of the driveway. It looked wonderful. Dog-guy had to stay on a leash, because the gates were open, and the concrete was still soft and wet.
Pawppy got into his car and was getting it out of the yard and onto the outside part of our yard that isn't fenced, because it is county property...his car had been in the yard since his surgery...and he hopes to be able to use it in due time, but since all the heavy trucks are gone for now, and we are going to get a lot of rain, he wanted it out of the yard again...whatevfur!
Anyways, meowmy had dog-guy on the leash, doing what he needed to do, and pawppy was getting out of his car...suddenly there was Bandit, the neighbor's dog. OMC! ACK:(
He saw them and wanted to come and visit...furry BAD timing.
He was supposed to be under the scrutiny of his furmily and on leash, the neighbors knew what we were doing to our driveway...Bandit ran right over that pristine and fresh concrete, leaving a whole trail of paw imprints, UGH!
Pawppy about had a heart attack, he was so upset.
The concrete dudes were summoned back, but they said since there was a coating on the surface, they could not do anything at this time, it has to wait until it hardens, then they have to cut out those areas and redo them...OMC, it wasn't even an hour old...
They suggested that pictures be made of the damage and that it be submitted to our insurance...yikes!
So Pawppy went out and got some pics...
Then later the peeps from next door came and apologized, well, that may be nice, and the right thing to do, but it doesn't fix the issue...sigh...
Our pawrents had worked so diligently to keep OUR dog-guy off of it, if this wasn't so bad it might actually be funny:(
Well, we were upset, too....last night, our big kitties, The Detroit Tigers, lost the World Series...they never even got to feel the joy of winning one game...sigh...sniff...
Congrats to those Giants...we know their fans are furry happy indeed.
We are also worried about so many of our furry furends in Catsterlnd, (and Dogsterland), as they are being negatively affected by this monstrosity of a storm called Sandy. What a tame name fur such a bad witchy storm.
We are getting a lot of strong winds, and rain and maybe some snow later. Our auntie and some furends in Ontario are getting buckets and buckets of rain. Way too much.
Stay warm and dry and SAFE, evfurryone!
The Giants are too big for even the big cats.
Now guys, I don't know what all the hoopla is about with your Peeps. Do NOT redo the driveway. Do NOT cut out the dog-guy prints. What a cool design in your driveway! Sure, it would have been nicer if YOUR dog guy had made the imprints but this will have to do I guess. I think, Pipo and Minko, you both need to run out there and put YOUR paw prints into the wet cement too! You will be the envy of the whole neighborhood!
P.S. - I hope Bandit doesn't get arrested and thrown in jail.
MOL, Mietzi...I think Pawppy wanted to make some new kind of dead dog breed, tonight.
He would have us banished or worse if we tried that, he said he paid too many bananas to have fureign markings on it, even if they were from us...he has no humor, MOL!
Meowmy did have a wee discussion about paw printed concrete at the back on our patio, but pawppy didn't like that idea either...spoilsport!
You know, the previous neighbors had a slab poured as a ramp to get into a shed, and they all put their names in it, and now they are gone, and it remains, but nobody knows/cares who they were...they should have taken it with them. Now that would be fun, to try to take our patio with us if we move...Hmmm...
And right now its too windy and scary to go out there to do anything! Tomorrow the concrete will be hard...
OMC, that really stinks!
All the neighbors offered was an apology? Will their insurance cover it? Perhaps they have some liability coverage that would pay for repairing it.
SO agree wif Beepers!~ Jus' a appology?? What da? Maybe if'n dey dish out some big moola's den dey will keep a leash on dere own doggy!~ Boy dat would make me mommy mad too, Pipo 'n Minko!!
Purrin' U all stay safe 'n secure from dis stoopid Sandy lady whofur is NO Lady!! U gettin' snow too?? EEEEK!
Purrayin' fur all dose in da line o' dat hurricane 'n be safe!
Yes, their insurance should cover it. All dog owners should have lie-ability insurance. Because you can't trust those woofers.
We heard from our insurance peeps today, and they said to get an estimate of repair cost so they can begin the process of getting this fixed...seems so senseless still, with the concrete being so new and all...Still haven't seen the Bandit dog...we think he is in hiding, though it should be his peeps.
We had cold wet windy weather all day today, and even some snow flurries, OMC!
Dog-guy has only gone outside to do...you know what...and then he comes right back in.
In fact, early this morning, he didn't want to go out in the grass, due to the pouring rain, so he did a 'lift the leg' on a potted plant on the porch...hee-hee...we guess he is in trouble, too, MOL!
Poor meowmy was in her PJ's still and couldn't get to him...
