Last time I told you about my great new guarding spot. I had a big hole to guard our garden and house from! But something terrible has happened. My guarding hole is gone.
M filled it up and put plants on it. Plants! And some odd smelling thing with water in it. What a waste.
I am depressed. It was such a nice hole.
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.
We have been out in the garden a lot recently. M has been working with the plants en bushes, making it all look pretty. She likes doing that. My task is to guard our property, so no cat or pigeon will enter it. Nor foxes nor rabbits, although I would like to chase a trespassing fox out of our garden! Alas, there are no smells of foxes or rabbits near our garden, so I guess they avoid us because they know I am here. Pity.
So M is gardening and I am guarding. Which, in a garden like this, is demanding because there are so many sounds and smells – human and feline – around us. It is guardening!
I met a very cool dog on the beach. She looks much like a wolf, actually she is a mix between a wolf and a shepherd dog. Her breed is called the Saarloos Wolfshond. This is what she looks like:
I played rough with her: we ran like hell and splashed through the water. She is quite big, but she was almost as fast as I am! Her human told M about an adventure they had. He was walking in the city at night, with his dog. Three guys surrounded them and wanted to rob him. But before they could do anything she jumped up to them and snapped them! She bit one of them in the nose! They ran off, leaving her and her human unharmed.
Awesome. That is what we dogs are for: we protect our humans. I would do exactly the same thing.
Did I mention I am a reliable bodyguard? Humans may think I look cute, but I can be a ferocious guarding dog when I want to. My teeth are very sharp and I won’t hesitate to use them when a nasty person comes too close. To our campervan, for instance. As you can see, M feels very safe with me by her side.
