Friday update, again

Above, Nala may be a foster, but she has taken over the senior position. 

Our resident chauffeur is very concerned, it seems that he has several friends that he has not heard from for a while and he just heard that squirrels are storing away nuts for the winter.   Naturally he hurried to make sure his friends are OK.   It turns out that they are OK, but they were even more concerned for him.    They were worried he would spend the winter in a big nest in a tree.

About a month ago we had a major construction project going on, at the same time we had foster friends coming and going so we did not include anything in the blogs about the construction.   The Koi pond had a rubber liner and after 25 years of dogs climbing out of it, it somehow developed a leak. 
First we had to find a large livestock water tank to put the Koi and Lilly's in, then the digging began.  Now the Koi pond is back in use, but twice the size it was before.     I guess that means we have more room to swim in it, but we keep getting told "NO".   Above, the Lilly's and Koi in their temporary home, I am busy watching them.  Below, the new and expanded pond under construction.   This is where the work had to stop while sprinkler pipes were moved, then digging continued. 
Below, the last Lilly's of summer:

  1. No swimming? Why did they build a pool with cool fish to try to catch then? Hmmm....silly humans!

  4. One of the first rules I had to learn at Mom & Dad's was "stay out of the pond". It's much smaller than yours, but hey, there's water and where there's water... Just being a Golden. Slurps, Tucker

  5. A bigger pool and yet still no swimming. How unfair!


  6. How beautiful, how absolutely beautiful. Mommie said she is sorry we can not see the colors, but we can take her word for it they are breath taking. Of course we are talking about the Koi pond.

    We love Nala's picture, she looks so relaxed and happy. But do tell, who are the chauffeur's friends that were worried he had to spend the winter in a tree? It couldn't have been the squirrels.

  11. No swimming? Seriously? They put in a swimming pool with live entertainment and they don't let you swim? Talk about a waste of time, energy and money! ;-)
