When I signed off yesterday, I promised to share pix of our "coffee on the deck" morning ritual. We love going out there; our deck gets morning sun, so it's usually cool enough to hang out, smell interesting things, and keep watch over the neighborhood. And Mom and Dad get to have coffee. As most of you know, sadly enough, it's on the Forbidden Foods List for pups. Rats! (Oh, sorry. Not you, Roger.) But that doesn't mean I can't dream about having some!
Anyroo, the other morning, we all headed out. Dave got into position first:
He looks very laid-back there, doesn't he? But don't let that fool you. It's hard work, watching over the entire neighborhood! I also took up my normal spot, camouflaged by the top of our White Ash tree:
See how alert I am? You never know when Oswald might start hopping around in our yard! I have to be prepared to stare at him at all times!
Roger wanted to come out and learn how to do Coffee On the Deck with us. I tried to explain to him that it was VERY hard work...
It did the trick, and we were able to get back to work. I decided I'd best give him a paw up, though.
Here you go, little fella! Stick close to me!
Our neighborhood has NEVER been safer! Really!
OH! And he finally told me what his Secret Mission is! Dave will fill you in tomorrow!
