Speck is very thankful for the storm door. He loves to find a nice sunny spot for snoozing. Can’t say that I blame him!
The other day Speck kept looking out the door and barking. I didn’t think anyone would be out there but I went and looked. Didn’t see anything; went back to sewing and he kept barking. I never could figure out why but then when he wanted to go outside, he wouldn’t go out that door. He wanted to go to the door at the front of the room. I finally realized there was a tan (dirt colored) plastic grocery sack caught on the barbed wire way down by the ground and it was flapping in the wind. Speck was afraid of it! Even after Vince went and got the sack and threw it away, it was several days before Speck was brave enough to go out that back door and he kept watching over by the fence to make sure that scary plastic bag wasn’t going to get him. That’s my watch dog!

don’t you just love our 4-legged kids!
Ah he sounds so sweet!

Big bad watch dog! Better a plastic bag that a rattlesnake though. Always heed his warnings, just in case.

That sounds familiar. Our little dog is afraid of his own shadow. Our neighbors have a little puppy that probably weighs about 6lbs and our dog is scared to death of him. So much for being a brave dog.
My little Chihuahua loves our storm door also, especially in the morning when the sun comes in. She will lay there until the sun moves on.

But he did warn you about the scary plastic bag. He didn’t want it to just get you and then it would be all his fault. Plus, he’s a CAREFUL dog, nothing’s going to get him either. 🙂 And that’s how you last out in the wilds.
Too funny! Reminds me of the time I found a snake skin in the garden. I was weeding and my cat was helping me. My cat started growling and I was screaming. My husband came out and picked it up and didn’t know why we’re spooked. Somehow, the two of us didn’t realize it was only skin.
awwww, i love it!

That is so adorable! What a cutie pie!
Maybe Speck is environmentally conscious and was warning you about the dangers of plastic in the neighborhood. Gotta love that dog!

Love it! One of our 2 Pomeranians and our cat both like to find little bits of sunshine on the floor. They become sunshine hogs! The dog will move every few minutes with the sunshine. Smart dog! 🙂

Oh, did that ever bring a smile to my face! I read it to my DH and he laughed too. We love Speck!
Mary Jo says
Aren’t our pets so much fun! I am sure Speck thought that he was being the great protector!

I just got back from spending a couple of weeks in Florida with my parents. They have 3 doxies – 2 are white with black (one is long haired) and the other is large and black dappled with 1 blue eye. The long haired one is a girl and her legs are about 3″ long! She sits on the lanai in the corner and hunts lizards, but the funny thing is that when you open the door to let her out, she starts barking as if to say, “Hello, Lizard! I am coming to get you!!!” And she actually caught one and ate it, but the lizards don’t agree with their delicate digestive system so I got the pleasure of cleaning up regurgitated lizard. Sassy was quite proud of herself!
