On Patrol

A couple of days ago we showed you this picture from the front porch of the house looking east.

This is a picture from almost the same spot from 9:30 this morning. Not much changes around here.

That said, we need to keep our guard up. This is a picture of our dog trail around the bushes. If you look at the top left of the picture, you will see (we think) Sammy & Andy. They are a little blurry because they were on the move. They have to work constantly to make sure the perimeter is safe.

Here is our cousin Jake heading out for the south fence line to check it out. You have no idea how many evil squirrels have come on the property as soon as we turned our backs. The other day one of them was hanging off of the window at the back of the house. Mom tried to take a picture of him but our barking scared him away and we saved the day!

And, of course, here is Sammy taking a look around to make sure nothing sneaks up behind him. He is very conscientious about protecting Mom especially after his reaction to the Lepto vaccine.

Not much else is happening around here today. We are catching up on our sleep on the sofa but everything is such a mess, Mom won't take a picture. You'll just have to imagine it.

SO cute! It's good they have you guy around - you never know what could happen if you let your guard down! :)

That is a very nice trail. It looks very important too.

Our yard is much smaller than yours, but we have a patrol trail too! Its very very important to make sure there are no intruders!

Lorenza said...

Your trail is pretty well defined!
I am sure you all go and go over it!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Roxie, Sammy, and Andy, it's very nice to meet you! You 3 must loving having that land to explore. It is hard to be creative but my Mommy gave me a challenge for the new blog every day and come up with a picture for that blog. It's pretty hard but I think I can do it.

You Dachsies are doing a pawsome job of patrolling the perimeter! I have a path like that in my backyard, too (underneath all the snow). It's an important job that we doggies have, always guarding and protecting!
