4-Legged Security Alarm

TGIF!!! It may've be raining cats & dogs and only 60 degrees this morning, but at least its Friday!

Security Alarm Sophie has been doing a stellar job in alerting the entire neighborhood us to critters in the yard. Here she is perched in her favorite spot... an old wooden storage box (I still adore that pic) that we've set in front of the livingroom window. Its certainly not pretty decor, but it prevents another destroyed couch serves this purpose...

Last week she spotted Mr. Squirrel under the bird feeders...

"Please stop barking at me, I know you're inside and can't get me..."

Sophie plans to sit in front of the window be on alert this weekend. Last night she spotted a new cat (at least new to our yard), but I think she's secretly holding out for the fox to make another apperance. Enjoy you're weekend... I'll leave you with some Fill-Ins...

1. Today is not the end of the world.
2. Sitting here, listening to the sound of rain falling, I am just glad that its Friday and hope for no rain on Sunday & Monday.
3. My morning iced coffee tastes so good!
4. Sometimes, putting others first is the right thing to do.
5. Watching the wildlife happily frolic in your own back yard is breathtaking, really.
6. Well, maybe there is hope that we'll see some summer before fall comes.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to hanging out with friends at the arena football game, tomorrow my plans include absolutely nothing... its finally a "whatever we decide to do" day and Sunday, I want to be rain free!

Good girl, Sophie. It's nice that she stays on guard so the others can catch up on their sleep.

Love your security alarm. Reminds me of our cats that patrol the back porch watching the bird feeders. lol

I love your alarm! And you don't have to a quarterly monitoring fee for her.

It was a complete surprise, a good one, to find the Bronco yarn.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I am a tea drinker and I love my hot tea in the mornings.

My shrill little security alarm kept sounding off, so I've punted the idea of sleeping and here we are...

Don't you just love those alarm dogs! How do you stop them from doing this?! I guess we probably should have trained them sense they were little, but as they have both been barking there hearts out for several years (and they aren't my dogs really) I guess they will continue their duty. lol

I also love to watch wild life in the back yard. Charli will sit for hours on the back of our chair in the living room and believe me she doesn't miss a thing. Your little four legged security alarm is adorable ♥
