White Dog gave Adam a constant stream of complaints as he moved her window perch chair and other furniture out of his way as he worked on the fireplace resurfacing. She was greatly troubled that things were not where they should be and did not believe him that everything would be put back in order before he left. She paced as she supervised him and glanced constantly at the clock and at his progress as if to say "Are you done yet?" When he finished mounting the tile, as promised, he put everything, including White Dog's perch exactly back where it was. White Dog hopped up on it to make sure and then settled on the chair's back to watch the neighborhood--her official "OK" to Adam.
