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?
My sister, Tallulah, and I love each other very much. More and more often, our humans find us touching . . . sometimes sitting side-by-side at the back gate, sometimes touching paws or heads as we sleep. The other night, Tallulah put her paw on my neck, placed her head on top of mine, and settled in for a little nap. That gave my human mommy/blogging assistant an idea: let’s feature a photo of Tallulah and me together each Sunday and call it “Sunday Sisters.” Hope you enjoy!
And speaking of fun Sunday series, today my friend Jasper the Fox Red featured me on his weekly Sunday Sessions. (You have to meet Jasper. He lives in Edinburgh. He has tons of energy. And he’s super handsome.) Have you ever wondered how I started blogging and why I love it so much? Click here to hop on over to Jasper’s Sunday Sessions and find out.
