civic duty

Twice this morning Sam gallantly alerted me to the terrible danger posed by a cat walking through the yard. On both occasions his barks also alerted the neighbors, whose cats are exclusively indoor animals.

Good dog.

Our dog Ginger is a great watchdog when it comes to squirrels...at least she keeps the squirrels at bay in the trees and off of the backyard grass.

Oh, and mice from the neighboring 4-H fairgrounds, Ginger definitely kills her share every July when they clean the barns out 'pre-fair'...I find dead mice all over the yard.

Ginger has scared off her share of door to door salesmen. After Ginger darn near came through the front door at a more than exuberant salesman, the salesman asked if Ginger bites, I exuberantly said 'yes'...

My Franklin cannot seem to understand why I do not share his outrage that cat or a rabbit is crossing our yard. He barks and barks, jumps down off his window seat and looks at me like I am a total idiot for not sharing in his indignation.

I must say -- and this impolite -- but when we are outside and I am wanting him to do his business, a little indignation goes along way in speeding up his pooping. Indignation poops are always pretty fast.
