Hi Everyone,

Sorry I missed posting last week.  It has been a veritable bee hive of activity at Whitneys in the last 2 weeks!  We’ve been packing up the stuff that is not essential and getting ready for our big move.  Meanwhile, construction is in full swing and progressing so fast that it is difficult to keep up with all the changes!

This last Friday, our Whitney family visited our new home during a staff meeting.  Since many hadn’t seen the progress in a while, it was fun for me to see their excited reactions to the changes that have been made. Of course I made everyone pose for a group picture.  We are missing a few faces here, but most of us made it.

The gang’s nearly all here!

So much has changed I thought I would show you some pictures of what has been happening:

First of all, the asphalt is being removed to make room for a large grassy area for the dogs’ needs.  After they remove all of this, they will bring in good soil and then I will plant some nice trees to provide shade and color.  I have already picked out a lovely maple and flowering cherry that are being held at Hoerr Nursery for planting when ready. Asphalt in a pile.

 

 

Asphalt removal. Big diggers at the ready!

 

The is the South side of our new home.  This area will be a large grassy area for the dogs.  Part of it will be fenced for patients that are hospitalized. Part will be available from the front parking area near the entrance.

 

Another big change is that the skylights and windows have been changed out now.  The amount of natural light inside is amazing. Check out the view from the North side of the building.  This is the side you will see as you turn to enter the parking area.

This area will be where patients are treated and are recovering after surgery.  Just like people, pets enjoy natural light.  It boosts their spirits and speeds up recovery.

 

 

 

 

 

This isn’t the only changes to be seen.  The colors have been added while painting has been in full swing. I hope you all love these colors as much as I do!  Take a look and let me know what you think!

This only a few of the colors, but they are all cheerful and bright.  The cabinets are also going in, but I don’t have photos of them yet.  Stay tuned for more updates and please tell me what you think! I’d love to hear from you!
