If you read this blog, then it is common knowledge that we have had to give up our dogs due to this...
This is right before Linus' first ambulance ride which he calmed down and really enjoyed.
So..........good by my precious dogs.
Blue is with Linzy and her son Xander.
The allergist also said that we will probably want to get rid of the furniture and carpets as soon as we can to fully see the benefits of Linus being allergy free. Since the dander and hair is all over them. AND the dogs licked and chewed on the couch. We have sold one couch, still trying to sell the other one, and working on getting rid of the carpet and buying new carpet. And can I just say that the dogs that lived here before...ew. There is still so much long hair that has settled under the carpet and I know they weren't as taken care of as they needed to be with their long hair. AND there are some major dog pee stains on the pad. Those weren't my dogs. I remember the few places they peed.
So, with all of this...Good-bye $$$.
Only to find out, we have a leak in the water main on our side of the piping.
Good-bye more $$$. When it rains it pours right?
Matt started to look online to find a plumber who would fix the water main, who wouldn't tear up the front lawn and rip down the yard, and wouldn't tear out two walls of sheet rock that we'd have to go back in and fix. We've had ENOUGH sheet rock fixing in this house to last a while. Only one company out of 12 fit the bill AND he was super competitive with the pricing.
This is what it looked like when they got done digging up our yard.
And this is what it looked like when they were done.
And last but not least, I just wanted to leave you with a cute picture to remind you to stop and smell the flowers...
