As you know I am a Ferocious Guarding Dog. A guarding dog needs some assets, in order to get the job done. One of them is a solid set of shiny teeth. And a deep, loud bark. I’ve got both, of course. Another asset is a good spot to do the guarding from. In our old home I had an excellent place for guarding. From there I could overlook the entire territory:
Our new home is different. We do not have a top floor anymore, so there is no high position to guard from. But we do have a huge front yard, so there is more space for me to guard from. There I found a great spot for guarding:
A guarding hole! Excellent.
As I told you in earlier posts, we are going to move house. The house is not finished yet, but M tells me we are moving soon. I am looking forward to it! It has a big garden for me to guard. I can’t wait to chase all the squirrels, rabbits and foxes out of it. There are some juicy cats living in the neighborhood, too. It will be fun!
We are at the new place almost every weekend. M and P work in the garden and I investigate the place. I am busy leaving my marks. Verbally, by barking really loud at humans and animals walking by. Hey, everyone should know we are going to live here! It will be my task to keep intruders out. It is important that everybody knows they will encounter a ferocious guarding dog if they step over the fence:
I am also leaving my marks in a visual kind of way. One can never be too shy on these matters, you know. It is very important to show this space is occupied, by a huge dog (with big feet).
