Not all of the dogs are always allowed to participate in projects around the house. Using an electrical saw and trying to keep track of three blind dogs at the same time is multi tasking that is more risk taking.
It was a nice warm and sunny day so the blind trio went outside to explore the yard while the dangerous activities were being done in the house.
Since Azule is deaf, the noise of the saw doesn't bother her and she was always laying around getting covered in sawdust. Of course Forest was there too, not wanting to miss anything. He is curious about everything. Quite the change from the severely neglected and terrified of everything pup that he was when we adopted him just over a year ago.
Azule is very much a typical Australian Cattle Dog in her desire to be with her person at all times. It is a common trait of the breed to be a "velcro" dog. She will always look for me (a bonus when off leash in the wilderness!) and loves to be close. She isn't demanding attention, she is just there. A little wave in her direction or a quick pat and she wiggles with happiness. When I was painting in the hall, I sat on the floor and within seconds, Azule was on my lap.
|"I'm not sure about this mess."
At one point, Forest helped by suggesting to Azule that she stay out of the way.
|"Azule, we can't go over there right now."
Once part of the floor was installed, Forest couldn't wait to check it out.
|"Ohhh...this is nice!"
The renovations are almost done and we'll soon have more time to get out and wander the wilderness.
