Text from Dog: There was a squirrel

Text from Dog: There was a squirrel. We'll let you know if it comes back.

It doesn’t really matter who saw or heard it first. Squirrel. UPS truck. Mail carrier.

One woof and they all come running. And barking.

“There’s a thing! I have to let everyone know about it! Where is it? Did you see it? I might have seen it. What was it anyway? I’ll keep barking just in case.”

Life with dogs.

How do your pets let you know what’s going on?

    LOL!! I love the pic of all three pups at the window. Daisy uses the same alarm system, but she can’t reach the windows so she just runs around the house tossing barks everywhere. It’s so funny to watch! :D

  2. This is so my dogs. Zoey starts barking and the others join in with the barking and THEN run to the window to see if they can see something. Cracks me up.

    Oh my gosh…this photo is so much like the one we posted yesterday for WW with three of us keeping our eyes on a squirrel. Check it out if you get a chance. We apologize for being missing for so long. Our mom just can’t seem to get it together. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Dogs are so funny! They find joy in every little thing in life. My kitties notice a lot of things, but they aren’t inclined to tell anyone about it. MOL

  8. This time of year, there’s a lot of squirrel action going on outside. And we love to watch it. :)

    Yes, that’s perfect! Our dogs growing up would do that exact thing. :)

    Zoe (one of our cats) will run from window to window, chittering, if something outside has her attention!

    Wells, since I’m an only doggie, I have to make it sound like there are a whole pack of me! I am very good at that. Just ask Ma. And the UPS guy (said he’s scared of me ☺) etc….
    I know Ma is very appreciative of this service. I know. She screams with delight every time…..
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

    That is adorable. Who needs a doorbell? You have a great security system right there.

    My two aren’t very keen on the barking thing. It’s pretty rare. But Sinead has been known to let out a little “Woo-woo!” of a growl when she sees something suspicious. She’s pretty darn tough at 8 pounds, you know!
