Dogs Don't Like Bats...

...But they do like making friends with the Bat Men who come to give people outrageous prices to remove bats from houses.

Thor made about 7 new friends this week. He led them on tours of the outside, and baked in the sun while they studied our roof.

Then Thor moved to the lawn on the other side of the house.


Wonder why this is so difficult? Slate roof.

Yes. Those are rocks on Thor's roof. It's the 200 year, leakproof roofing system, but it's horrible at keeping out little creepy crawly thingies. So, no bat removal, but I am going to have the paper wasps and carpenter ants and spiders removed from my attic.

Thor approves.

Lola was watching some bats fly around outside the other night... she was fascinated.

Glad to hear that you are having the spiders and creepy crawlies removed. So long as Thor is happy about the situation then all should be OK. Diane

I'd trust this foreman.

(My boy-crazy boxer loves all workmen, particularly plumbers. She'll throw herself shamelessly at any guy who smells like earth and sweat.)

I've got some contractors here that I need Thor to supervise. The kitty cats are big fat old chickens!

Fun post today. I'm glad you're getting the wasps out - even if the bats are staying. They should be happy to stick to the belfry! g

Wow, Thor - you've got bats?! That's kinda cool! :-) Do they come at night to suck your blood? (*delicious shiver*)

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Gosh, Thor, a regular wild kingdom under that roof. Bats need love too, you know.

Thor looks VERY suspicious of the activity - or maybe he's not keen on the bats. I LOVE your high-pitched roof! Bet your house is darling. Have I just missed pics??!

Thor wears many hats, glad he's not the bat handler though. GREAT supervising Thor!

Wouldn't it be fun if his good looks paid for the removal of all the creepy, crawly thingies!

Channon said...

Well, little creepy crawlies gone are a plus, but I'm sorry the bats are staying on...
