I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Stumpy's a slacker

Coyote watch should look something like this


or this


But lately, coyote watch is looking like this


and this


It appears the ears are still working


But someone is slacking!




P.S. I give up trying to align that second pic! UNCLE, Blogger, UNCLE! You win!

Come on, Stumpy! Don't slack off! Those coyotes could come steal your yummy treats. Or your toys. Or your new Wobbler. Or your chair. Or your human! Wake up, Stumpy!

Sheesh, Stumpy's asleep on the job alright. If she doesn't watch out, a coyote is going to be sleeping in her chair! Then what will she do?

Wyatt said...

All you really need is the ears!! It's okay Stumpy, we know you are still on duty...you are just checking the insides of your eyelids!

Wyatt and Stanzie

Barbara said...

Hey, sometimes you have to sleep! Can't be on watch all the time!

Deborah said...

Hey, don't feel bad Stumpy, we all know you are diligent in your duties... you are lucky to be able to make it so effortless!

Stumpy's not slacking, just conserving energy from the cold. That's the way Phantom was for hours this morning, a big ball of fur curled up on the sofa, nose tucked under tail. We are sure she will go on full alert once those ears detect the howls.

LOL, you sound like me. Why is it so hard to get the stupid photos straight? I don't understand. I think it looks more arty this way.

My dogs have assured me that watchdogs *never* sleep.

Stumpy is on the job,,,,just undercover, posing as an unsuspecting mark for the nasty old coyotes. When they least expect it,,,,BOOM & GOTCHA,,,,the real Stumpy leaps into action. At least I hope so !

Elyse and Riley, I sure appreciate the pep talk for Stumpy!

Carey, That's what I told her!

Wyatt, those telescoping ears do seem to hear everything, even my eyes when I blink!

Barbara, Who's side are you on?

Deborah, Not to worry, Stumpy feels no shame!

OP Pack, So Phantom's giving lessons in slacking?

Mama Monster, um...yeah, right...

Phyllis, I hadn't thought of that, good point!

Khyra, are you the head of their PR comitttee?

Kristine, not being an artsy erson, I need straight lines! ARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

Jan, Stumpy tries to convince me of that, too...

Mayzie, it's a possibility, except most times she only requires 3 seconds of rest before she's all zoomy again!

bbes tribe, are you her union rep?????

Joke Puppy, oh that explains it... suuuuuure, I'm buying that!

Heelers, This ain't no union house! (no offense to any union workers, I'm union myself, even retired. NALC Forever!)
