I must admit I poked a bit of fun at our devoted rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle in yesterday’s post, what with her, er, relaxed couch pose.
To be fair, she is a rather good guard dog, too, always ready to protect A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville, as witness to this photo of her outside the side door.
That makes my dear wife Karen and I feel very, very good, each and every bark as folks pass our house by on their daily way, with their own dogs and without. Do we admonish her to “stop that barking!” every now and then? Well, sure. But only when she gets carried away and goes on and on when we’ve looked out the window with her and reassured her that it’s OK.
Have you had a dog that barked at every sound? Have you had a dog that you know chased away a do-no-gooder? Have you had a dog that ignored the outside world?
