Last weekend was a bit too much. I went running with P and walking with M and guardening at our new house. It is a lot, you know, having to guard two houses. Even for a dog with my stamina.
I need some time to rest, really. As in: snoozing for a couple of hours, being left alone. I need me-time. And that is precisely what I will indulge myself in. See you later!
Sorry you have not heard from me for a while. I have been very busy exploring our new garden! M and P finally took me with them in their many visits to our new home. The new home is practically a building site now, we do not live there yet. It will take some months before we move, M told me. That means I have two houses and gardens to guard! A big responsibility.
I am very exited about our new place. The garden is huge! I have a very nice garden now, no complaints, but the new garden is much grander. It is an estate, for me to guard!
This is it, the front yard:
There is a back yard too:
I already discovered some very exciting things in our new garden. I found shit smelling of fox! Great, there are foxes for me to hunt there! I love that, foxes are my absolute number one chasing targets. I do hope I will get the change to chase one, soon.
Anyway, you will understand that guardening all this will take a lot of time and effort. Maybe I won’t be able to blog in the time to come. But when I have exiting news to bring you, I certainly will. For instance when I caught a fox! That would be nice.
The past weekend was a bit disturbing for me, because all of a sudden M and P started to move things in our home. Not just a little thing, but big things: they changed the complete inventory of three rooms! No canine likes change when the present situation is comfortable, but humans tend to see these things differently. There was nothing I could do about it.
I went to a room that was quiet and waited what was about to happen. When they were finished moving all the stuff around, they called me to do a thorough nose-inspection of the three newly furnished rooms. I did, of course. It was a bit odd to smell familiar things in a different setting.
I did not see the need to do all this changing, but there is one positive result. M moved her work space to the front of the house and therefore created a new lookout for me! She is working in a room that was not used much before. She will be there almost every day and I can be with her. And guard my territory from a new perspective! I do like that.
We are not on holiday yet, but M told me we will leave soon. I am thrilled! I was a bit worried, however, too. Because when I am gone, who will guard our house? M told me they rented the place, so other humans will stay in our house. They have no dog, she assured me, but I buried my bone in the garden when M wasn’t looking. Just to be sure.
There are humans staying in our house, but will they be capable of guarding the house in a way that is sufficient? I doubt it. So I found a solution to that problem: I asked my good friend Boss to keep an eye on it in my absence. He said he would be delighted to do so. He truly is a great friend.
So when you are a burglar and you are reading this: please feel free to try breaking into our house. You will give Boss a good time. By the way, this is what he looks like:
Imagine that piece of wood in his mouth being your arm or leg? Right. Happy guarding, Boss!
