Living Like a Squatter

Sorry for the lack of posts. We haven't been doing anything interesting....well, unless you count mom and dad reducing my boudouir into a squatter's den interesting. Saturday, they began moving all the furniture out of the bedroom. Then they painted over the walls this HORRIBLE white color! Blah!

Mom said it was called "priming". I got excited, cause I thought she meant like Optimus Prime and our room would transform into a cool car or something. Alas, priming is what you have to do to cover up paint to put up new paint. Sigh.

They primed Saturday (then had to stop cause we had to watch our Auburn Tigers beat the Georgia Bulldogs!!). And instead of moving our nice big bed back into the room, they just moved in the mattress. So now we're living like squatters on the floor. No high bed. No TV, nothing. It's horrid! Here's pictures of me in our version of Gitmo:

The walls after they primed them...notice the non-working TV in the floor. Boo!

So I just accepted my fate as a squatter. The room has now been painted and the furniture and TV should be back in this weekend. Mom and dad are working on the trim and are going to re-trim the windows. I have a feeling this painting thing is going to cramp my style!!!


  1. OH ANNA, the humanity! How do they expect you to keep order in true GSD fashion when nothing is as it should be?

    I can't take anymore...


  2. This sounds HORRIBLE! I hope things get back to normal soon!

  3. How AWFUL to be kicked outta your room!!! Hopefully, it will be back to normal soon!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  4. Oh so sorry to hear that you're living like a squatter now. It's awful! Hope everything is back to normal ASAP!

  5. Anna, we are so sorry! We think we might be living as a squatter here soon if we get a roofer to our house and that's going to mean painting for the walls that are messed up. We all get headaches thinking about unplugging everything and moving it. Maybe we should all go on a vacation while this is going on!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  6. Oh a squatter! How could they force that on you! At least they put your bed back in, but on the floor! (GASP)
    Hopefully your room gets back to normal soon and maybe they are planning a super cool dog room for you- hey you never know!

  7. OMD! Well, look at the brite side - if'n the spirit moves you to chew something up they would prolly neffur notice, speshully if'n you throw some empty beer cans round to add to the squatter decor.

  8. Looks like a cozy spot thought :) Bet the new room will look beautiful when done!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  9. The hu-dad ignored that whole Auburn/Georgia thing since not much is happening in Knoxville this year. And we know you know what we mean.

    At least the humans now know what it is like to be forced to sleep on the floor.

  10. Me finks you are not sweepin in the manner to which you have grown accustomed... Sigh.

    Me finks, though, that you will be frilled when all good plans come to fruition.

    Hang in there.

    wif love from the Luke

  11. Poor Anna. But we think it might be fun to sleep on a mattress even if it is on the floor - we never get to sleep in the humans' bed:( So will we get to see the new color when the room is done - we bet it will be very beautiful.

  12. Crazy human ideas are always a cramp in your style! I've learned that much. I can't believe they expect you to live like that! At least you have photographic evidence to show the ASPCA when you call them.


  13. Sheesh, I hope things are restored to normal order soon. A gal like you shouldn't have to put up with this human weirdness!!
