Hi this is Mike, the Miniature Schnauzer that lives with Tierney of tierneycreates and her partner John.
I saw that the tierneycreates Beastie did a guest blog post, so I wanted to do one too.
Since you last heard from me (see February 2021 post Guest Blogger: Obsession with Making Crocheted Dishcloths), I’ve been busy overseeing remodeling projects by my human John, just like in the post from 2020 Guest Blog Post: A Whole Lot of Remodeling Going On.
I spend a lot of time in home improvement stores (Lowe’s and Home Depot) and I love riding in John’s truck as his co-pilot:
He always has my box ready to go behind the seats, which I ride in whenever I am in a home improvement store helping him select the next round of home remodeling supplies:
(Note, I’ve gotten a summer haircut recently and look less shaggy)
I’ve met a lot of staff and customers while riding around in my box in home improvement stores, and the other day John wheeled me in via the shopping cart into Home Depot and heard “Hi Mike!”
It was one of the cashiers greeting me as I went by! They remember my name.
Same thing happened that day when he had to go to a different home improvement store.
I am sort of a local celebrity!
John and I have been working on sprucing up the backyard. I oversaw his installation of pavers under a bench that Tierney found on clearance to place under the large Aspen trees in the backyard; his installation of pavers under their new backyard swing; and his building of a privacy screen for the backyard patio area.
I was pretty exhausted after all that work!
