Out With the Old…

Hewwwow!  Finn here.  One day, Momma and Pops were going about their regular going-to-work routine, and I heard a big truck pull up.  They had ordered a new fence for the back yard, and the company had a cancellation that day, and guess what?  We were getting that fence that day.
Momma said it’s funny how things work, because on that same day, her commuter train line into the concrete jungle was suspended.
A train hit a car and killed a man earlier in the morning.  Trains were cancelled on her line until 3PM that day and delayed on the other lines around us.
So she got to work from home while the fence guys put up our new fence.
Out with the old.


More investigating
After my initial investigation, I decided it would be best if I just laid down and let Momma take some pictures and I would wait until it was all over.
There was a lot of grinding and banging and I didn’t take so well to that.  I was sure glad Momma was home that day!

The Neighbor

Our next door neighbor likes to provide a cat with some food and water.  
Finn sniffs around waiting for that cat to show up…
Because when we go for a walk outside and we see this…

…it turns into a shoot-out showdown, and I have to say, Finn is a wimp.  The cat hisses, Finn jumps away, and then she goes back inside looking for the cat through the fence again.

It’s a vicious cycle.  If she knows the cat is going to hiss at her, why does she jump?  And then go back to looking for it?  Oh Finn…
