Neighborhood Watch Dogs

Before we had furniture our front room was used for one thing and one thing only.Rhodesian Ridgeback, chicago, cute, blog, adventure

Sun bathing at all costs. Including using the wall as a pillow

But our new bench provides the perfect perch for one of the pups’ favorite activities

Neighborhood watch!

Eko and Penny love to keep an eye on all the passerbys 

It appears neighborhood watch is extremely taxing, because the guards take frequent breaks in our new chairs.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it

Nothing sneaks by Eko. Unless he’s taking a nap. 

Even “Wild Thing” Penny can’t resist taking a break.

“Don’t judge me, Will. A girl needs her beauty rest.”

Recently I’ve noticed the pups have been extra vigilant. But in the wrong direction.

For some reason, the pups were intently staring out the side window which faces our building

I shrugged at first, but my curiosity got the better of me and I took a closer look out of the side window. Turns out you can see/smell my neighbors’ dining room from our front window and the pups were inviting themselves to dinner.

I tried to inform the pups they’re supposed to be Neighborhood Watch. Not neighbor watch, but they don’t seem to get the distinction. Now that we have furniture, it looks like it’s time to invest in some blinds for the windows.

I’d be careful about investing too much in new blinds. If they get in the way of the sights and smells from the neighbors kitchen, you might find your new blinds being “taken down” by the pups. I’d suggest verticals that aren’t attached at the bottom. Somehow the horizontal blinds that are attached to each other seem to come off the wall fairly easily with a swipe of those big feet 🙂 Love following the story!!
