White Dog directed the truck as the driver backed the trailer up our driveway and stopped next to the house. It was our solar panels and today the system was to be installed! Oddly enough, the day was rather overcast. White Dog watched in fascination as the workers assembled a ladder that reached to the roof and had a motorized elevator tray to lift the seventeen panels up to the site. She listened intently as the men walked across the roof and built the rail system which holds each panel in the proper place at the correct angle. Several times she and Steve walked around the house trying to get a view of our sun-catchers but they could only see a glimpse of them from the sidewalk at the front of the house. Finally Steve could stand it no longer and climbed to the roof where he could see the system and photograph it. White Dog and I peered over his shoulder to look at the image of bluish panels marching across our roof. Next week the city must approve the installation and after that the power company must certify it fit for operation...then we can jump into the future! Meanwhile, White Dog looks up at the roof each time she goes out frustrated that she can't do "paws" on quality control.

Good for you!!! I bet it seems like a lifetime in the making, but it will be SOO worth it. Siku, maybe you can ask dad to post some pictures on the bottom of the fridge so you can see the panels too. I bet you are exhausted from the hectic supervision schedule you had to keep today. Job well done, beautiful girl.

What an exciting day, Siku! I love that you're going solar! Will you show us pictures? No more gas and electric bill means more treats for you, yes?:)

Sometimes the supervisory role has to be done from afar, White Dog. Maybe you can get one of the workers to bring a truck with a lift on it so you can get a ride up higher.

Perhaps a wag of the tail will assure the workers that all is well. It is usually a universally understood sign of approval.
