Sunday Sisters: August 13, 2017Posted: August 13, 2017 Filed under: Dogs I Like | Tags: Dogs, Golden Retriever, Harper Lee, Pet Photography, Pets, Sunday Sisters, Tallulah, Thek9harperlee 24 Comments
My sister, Tallulah, and I take our Guardians of the Gate duty very seriously. We’re always on the lookout, especially for dogs and cats and squirrels. We notice every person walking by, every bus arriving at the neighborhood school, and every bicycle pedaling to its next stop. Our Guardian efforts to date have been impeccably successful: Not a single dog, cat, squirrel, person, bus, or bicycle has entered our domain.
Psssst . . . here’s the real story . . . don’t tell our humans, ok? Tallulah and I love sleeping next to our gate. We’re usually butt-to-butt, Tallulah resting her head on the gate’s bottom bar and me with my face flat on the ground. True, we bark obnoxiously when dogs walk by, but that’s just because we want to visit. And as for the humans passing by? We’ve trained each and every one to stop and pet us and tell us how sweet and beautiful we are. I guess we’re really more typical Goldens than menacing Guardians. But that’s just between us, right?
Fluffy butts. Have a great Sunday
We do have some fluffy butts. Mine looks bigger than Tallulah’s in this photo. It’s just the angle. Really.;-)
Your secret is safe with me, girls. I watch people go by from my balcony, like a ninja. 99% of the time, they don’t even know I’m there. But I’m there. Watching….
Love and licks,
Very sneaky and stealth, Cupcake!
Carwyn loves sleeping on the front deck so he can keep an eye on the neighborhood. No one get past with out a tail wag or a bark of greeting.
Carwyn sounds like he should be chairman of the neighborhood welcome committee!
We PROMISE we won’t tell! You are both so adorable!! xoxo
I knew you could keep a secret. 😉
You guys look so scary! I’m sure no one will try to break in!
I detect a hint of sarcasm. 🙂 🙂
Good to know your ‘hood is safe from all manner of intruders! Dog kisses and tail wags are very effective in home security. 😇
Well, Tallulah does have a pretty wicked lick and I do this between-the-human-legs greet that can be pretty dangerous . . . especially for men. 😉
We won’t tell a soul but I think your sweet faces may give you away!
Ok, ok, so we have a little trouble looking tuff. 🙂
Such cute fluffy butts!
Fluffy butts equal a whole lot of hair all over the house, but it’s a price our humans are more than happy to pay. 🙂
I bet you don’t have to do much training of the peeps to get pet. Everyone loves a golden!
We are slightly irresistible. 😉
Understatement of the year…
My lips are sealed!! Do you ever get some yummy treats too??
Mommy suspects that we might have been slipped a treat or two once or twice. 🙂
You do your job well, even if your job is not exactly what your humans think it is. 🙂
That’s the kind of performance review we like!
