Who's a guard dog?

First, some background info. We live in a duplex, and we don't have a front or back door. Our door is on the side of our half of the duplex, and you have to open our gate and come into our yard to get to our door. (Wow, so many "our"s in that sentence. It looks like it's spelled wrong...) Anyway...

So yesterday, this woman and her teenaged daughter came to the door in the in-person version of the wrong number. Dannan was outside, and he barked at them as they came through the gate. The Min Pins inside sounded the alarm, with their "INTRUDER!!" barks. So much noise, sweet heaven.

I made my way to the door, not noticing that Dannan had stopped barking. I looked out the door to see the teenaged daughter squatting down, scratching Dannan's belly. Which he had conveniently displayed by going Upside Down. What a fierce and frightening guard dog I have.

For your viewing pleasure, a gratuitous Upside Down shot (from the cell phone, excuse the quality):

pee s. the plaque stuff just came from a local store, it is called Plaque Off and so far it seems to really help!

The Girl said...

Well, the Min Pins would try to eat whoever invaded the yard, but I'm a lover, not a fighter!

And The Girl says thanks about the Plaque Off! I better not find it in my food now... :)

Well, you did bark to let the girl know. Obviously you were smart enough to know there was no threat,so we think you were very smart to get a tummy rub out of the in person wrong number!

What a softy you are all rolling over like that.


P.S. I FINALLY got momma to update my doggie pals list so I won't forget to visit anybody anymore.

The Girl said...

Sunny and Scooter! I can get pretty much *anybody* to give me a belly rub! People think it's so cute that I just immediately roll over, it totally works for me!

Mango Man! Thanks for stopping by! We read your blog all the time! I'm totally giddy that you came to visit us! I'm a slobbery guy too, but I don't hold a candle to you! Woah, look at all the exclamation marks! I'm totally stoked, dude!
