The following story was told to me by one of my friends in a Facebook Group. I thought you guys would like to read about a REAL Guard Dog. Thanks for sharing it Ann, I always enjoy your literary style!
My Audrey is a wonderful guard dog.
This morning I saw her sniffing the air… then her ears perked up. She can smell and hear thieves a mile away.
As they came closer, she began nudging my elbow… closer still, she grabbed the sleeve of my shirt and tugged. When I didn’t seem to understand that this was an emergency, she began barking… “Thieves are coming! Thieves are coming! THIEVES!!!!”
I could hear nothing, and it is still dark, so I could see nothing.
She persisted, barking louder and more fiercely as yellow lights came down the road.
Finally, I could see them. They stopped right in front of our house, causing Audrey to go WILD, spinning in circles, screaming at them, but it didn’t deter them. They took our trash anyway.
Why do dogs do some of the things they do? This is a question that is probably asked a million times a day all over the world.
In my case, I probably ask it several times a day myself! This morning for instance: While eating, Patchs took a mouthful of food, walked over to the corner of the room, dropped it on the floor and tried to cover it up with her nose … then went back for more food. She then went to a new corner and did the same thing again!
When eating from her bowl, she will take a bit, bump the bowl a few inches and take another bit or two. By the time she gets done, the bowl is all the way across the room.
She does all kinds of strange things that amuse me. But I have never found anyone that can answer the question, WHY?
What kinds of strange things does your dog do?
I’d always heard from my parents and my friend’s parents that time passes faster as you get older, but I always thought that it was just a bunch of “who-ie” …. But now, it’s happening to me, and I’m that old!!! OH CRAP … I also just realized that I’m in Denial too 😉
The only NON work thing I seem to be getting done on a regular basis is I’m going for walks with my dog. We try to go every day, but when it’s snowing or the streets are sloppy we have to rethink things a bit, and we have to find things to do at home.
I guess I should be glad I’m busy and that I’m able to make all the payments and keep the bill collectors at bay, but I’d really like to take a day off once in a while.
Does anyone else have these “Time Flies” issues or is it JUST me?
In an effort to get your week off on the right foot … It’s time once again for the Monday Funnies. (I love Family Circus)
How many of you take YOUR pillows for a walk?
