Alex stands on guard day and night to protect his source of food - ME! While I sew upstairs he sits in the window watching out for anyone who might want possibly interupt his food suppy.
Like the school bus barrelling down the street ...
or the young mother jogging with her babies in a stroller ...
or the kids climbing the old magnolia tree across the street.
Yup, Alex protects us from all these deadly threats.
See.. here he is at the window being vigilant:
And what are the girls doing while he works so hard? Asleep in the comfy chair next to the window ... until they think someone is going to intrude into their backyard. Then they are up and out to the back yard to bark at the intruder... like a squirrel, the dog next door or, the worst, some other dog being walked by its owner.
The house and I are very well protected, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
For all this hard work, they each get about half a cup of dog food and a doggy treat once a day.
From each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs.
Have a great weekend!
