A whitewash

We've been on holiday for the past two weeks but there was no jetting off to some exotic location and lounging about on a beach for us........no,no,no........that would be much too relaxing. Instead, we've been gaily gettting ourselves, and anything else within arm's reach, splattered with white paint in the process of giving the outside of our house a spruce up. Although we only had one storey to paint, it has been a major undertaking (a lot more wall than you might think and bumpy too!) but at last the job is done.

Jana decided that she ought to give us a little help........

Parti-coloured vizsla

which meant she got to experience her first ever shower and shampoo. Luckily it wasn't the gloss paint that she experimented with.



Post-shower and admiring the brilliant white walls.

Don't they just love to get involved? White doesn't show too much on the Dalmatians, but it turns a black Labrador into a magpie dog.
The walls look great. I laughed like a drain at Jana in her shades - they really suit her!

The head-on look, with the shades, is magnificent!

Looks like you are running the paint show! Those sun glasses make you look like a movie star, darlin'!

Thank you for that post! You have no idea how much I needed an extra smile this week. Jana in paint and shades looking cool as ever did the trick. Hope you're having an excellent holiday.

I bet you're glad it's all done, at least the weather was kind. Jana looks really funny in those shades.

Oh Jana - you had me cracking up! Ha! Ha! Ha! You look SO cool with those shades on...and I'm glad the paint came off! Although I thought you looked very striking! :-)

Slobbers,

When you are done with your house you can come this way and paint ours! Oh, too far - OK.

Domi, the therapy dog, has passed to the Bridge this weekend. Our blog contains her last letter to her friends. Please come to visit. It would mean so much to our momma and then go to Domi's blog to offer condolences. Momma is crying a lot today.

A great lesson for any dog owner aspiring to complete a major painting project. I'm glad I'm not the only one to have learned this lesson the hard way, and I must say that Jana wears white far better than Truffles wears the pale blue of our hallway!

Such a cool dog!

Good for you getting your house painting done. That's a very satisfying kind of holiday. There's far too much emphasis now on having to go somewhere exotic.
