Monday Mischief.--even though...

it's Tuesday here.
And yes, there is a reason Dui is featured.
Dui has had a VERY disturbed morning.
Firstly, a huge truck arrived to put 8-tonnes of 
gravel base on the section of the yard we're having
crushed granite put down.
The driver had to wait to find out what was happening.
Dui was frantic, barking and screaming his disapproval.
Then the porcine Jack Russell from next door who
belongs to the Mysterious Ray, went walkabout. (more like waddleabout)
She walked from garden to garden, inciting him
to further screaming.
Finally, the man with the 8-tonne load left
mumbling something about having his tyres detailed.
SHE took us for a run--not to be confused with
the early morning walk--to tire Dui out.
On returning, there was a huge pile of (SHE hopes)
crushed granite blocking the driveway, making it 
necessary to park on the street.
Dui was beside himself.  He tried to launch himself
out of the car, but was caught by his ear.
Finally, all leads on, dogs could be brought inside the gate.
Then the postman came...another bout of wild barking.
At the moment there is calm, the porky JR is next door
barking non-stop, and Dui is resting.
There may be a return of the digger this afternoon to spread the granite.


  1. BOL - Lightning is the noisemaker here. If the doorbell rings, or if he senses someone is on the cul-de-sac that doesn't belong here, he lets out with a huge stream of barks. And Lightning has a very BIG bark:)

  2. Poor Dui! Abby Lab had a similar experience. A very large delivery truck stopped in the street. She thought it was her arch enemy the Fed Ex driver but it was someone delivering a new washer and dryer and taking the old ones away. But since the new ones were behind a BUNCH of stuff in the big truck, they had to empty about half of it in the street. She barked the whole time.

    Hope tomorrow is calmer. LB
