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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Coyote watch begins at dusk, each night.

Alf and Stumpy work, together, to keep our home free from intruders.

Alf tends to take a more relaxed approach, relying on Stumpy to alert him in case of an invasion

Stumpy remains on high alert

While Mr.B goes on break

The cycle repeats itself at dawn

Pure teamwork. Alf (BillyBob) is so at home it appears! And Stumpy is such a kick - such a face!!

Oh that's my girl!
I'd feel relaxed and safe with her on watch too. Ruthlessly beautiful Stumpy

Sandra said...

It's a very good thing you and Alf have Stumpy there to watch for and ward off coyotes. Berner can relax cuz he knows he is in good paws.

So- what happens when they see or hear something?
Thanks for all your help on my mystery item.

Things will be "different" here for a few weeks but I hope to get back and read/comment when I can. (less computer time for a while)

Brenda, alf is definitely comfortable here. Sure wish he could stay :(

Norwood, Stumpy has it all under control, including alf and he knows it.

Sandra, I actually miss the coyotes coming around. Every once in awhile I can sneak out without the dogs and enjoy a visit with them.

dogsmom, Oh! I was going toget back to that research today! Stumpy's pretty good, most of the time. She doesn't react unless the yotes come right in the yard. that doesn't usually happen because the yotes have learned to look for the dogs on the deck, I think. The Berner follows Stumpy's lead. Every once in awhile they will chase one across my neighbor/landlord/friend's yard, which ikind of like an extension of our yard.

Great teamwork, but it looks like one pup does a lot more of the work:)

But a wee bit warm fur me!

It's nice to see gainfully employed dogs...earning their room and board!
Just like me and Stanzie...well Stanzie anyway.


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

OP Pack, anydog would be hard put to keep up with Stumpy!

Heelers, Stumpy would be more than happy to come down and help Gus alert the Reds!

Wizz, some days it's a blast, some days it's a bust.

Khyra, that's we we only do coyote watch at dawn and after the sun sets. It's too freaking hot, even for the yotes!

Wyatt, Stumpy wears many different hats when it comes to helping out around here. No free dog bones in this house!
