The men and the excavator work together to fill basement rooms with sand and gravel to get ready for pouring the floors. The last photo depicts what happens after the work crew has left and the photographer relaxes with her dogs. The accommodations is a 23 foot 1973 travel trailer. It is very cozy with 3 Bouviers, John and Judith. Phoebe has chosen to stay in Parksville with Judith's 99 year old Mom for the winter. The home has a warm gas fireplace and Mrs Forbes often sneaks treats to Phoebe when no one is looking. Phoebe takes her job as an old lady's companion very seriouly. She enjoys being the only dog for a couple weeks at a time. Judith returns to her mother's home every 2 weeks to check in on her and give the home-care worker a break. Phoebe is always glad to see her friends Goldie and Sunny, however she tolerates the puppy's antics very well for a 13 year old Bouvier. Phoebe is always glad to see Judith take the Taffy to the "Doggie Park" and get her out of her hair.
