Thursday – A Little Personal -Twiggy Has a Complaint

Lucy and Twiggy

“Hey, Lucy come here.”

“What’s the problem, Little Potato?”

“Someone put a thingy over my window.”

“So you can’t see out?”

“Yeah. It looks like the window’s been frosted.”

“I think it might be to save the baby deer from your barking.”

“You’re kidding right?”

“No. I heard The Boss talking to Mom. Looks like your ferocity upset the fawn.”

“Geez, Lucy. All I want to do is warn everyone of the dangers of a wild, crazed fawn.”

“I know, Little One, but others don’t see it like you and I.”

“Can I see it from the back yard?”

“I don’t think so.”

“Come on, Lucy. Let’s go see.”

“Okay. But I think you’ll be disappointed.”

“Hurry.”

“Coming, Little One.”

“I’ve looked everywhere.”

“You have to wonder why the fence is not see through, don’t you?”

“You are saying the privacy fence is to keep me from scaring the deer.”

“I’m not saying that. I’ll bet the folks are thinking it though.”

“Man what good is a watch dog if they can’t see the stuff to watch.”

“Last I heard you are a bulldog not a watchdog.”

“Don’t confuse me with facts.”

“Right.”

  2. For us, the interlopers are horses and cattle. They come at Beau (our Lab) from every front, and no matter how many times a day they walk across the pasture, the alarm must be sounded. Sigh… Our Cavalier KC Spaniel thinks he’s nuts…πŸ˜‰

  6. Omigosh! Twiggy’s face at the “You’re kidding, right?” photo is priceless.
    Poor girl. Wants to be a watchdog but her view’s been “disabled”!
    Love these exchanges, John.

    1. She still has the sofa back but it is a matter of time and place. She could watch 100% of the movements before. Thanks, Dale.

  7. Poor Little Potato – … but is there a place where she can see the FedEx/UPS trucks?

    1. Yup. She has to climb on the back of the sofa and guard the house from there.

      1. Good to know that she’s not completely blocked off from evil.

      2. True. She has plenty of evil to supervise. She just did five minutes at the trash collectors. She is now exhausted.

      4. I couln’t laugh when she told the story, but did bite my cheek holding back. Picture a big dog, human, and a little dog running from a deer. Too funny.

    1. I know. The poor thing can’t have everything she wants. Almost everything but barking at the deer is no longer an easy task. She has to climb on the sofa and look out the window from there.

  19. LOL and awww. Poor Twigster. She does look disappointed. β€œYou’re kidding right?” — it looked exactly like she was saying that, John. πŸ˜€
    The house is looking posh and polished. I’m definitely moving the slowest of those of us who relocated this year. But I don’t have to hurry — or that’s what I try to convince myself. πŸ™‚
    Hugs on the wing.
