Let me count the ways.....
AAAAND, you also look after and protect me. This morning with the help of our deaf Border Collie Noodle- yep, you heard right. Noodle woke me up this morning (at 4 a.m. no less) just incensed and barking her intruder bark. At almost the same moment, I heard what sounded like someone knocking at the door? Which would be how Noodle saw them. I really can move fast in some instances, always amaze myself! tee hee!
I heard two people talking outside, really hushed tones. At the same second I heard them, two white flashes FLEW down the driveway like they were chasing on the heels of the bats from hell. Son and I got quickly out the back door- the Border Collies went out like thunder, barking at the driveway fence. Bobbi and Andrew (the white streaks) were already up on our hill, and had chased whomever it was all the way UP that very steep hill.
I am thinking SOMEone had to clean out their trousers AND hope they made it past the farm on the other side of our hill unscathed. Their German Shepherds are very unappreciative of people stopping by THEIR farm too. We called out 'good dog' (we never use their names in front of anyone we don't know) and Bobbi and Andrew came galloping down to the yard We handed out treats and watched them play. They were SO happy with themselves and proud of their ability to protect the home front! They galloped, played and paraded around the circle drive for a bit, then went back home to resume watching over their sheep.
Now I never wish anyone harm, nor do I wish my dogs to bite or hurt anyone or anything. Bobbi and Andrew have had all their shots, but would be in way too much trouble- and our insurance would probably sky rocket.
THAT said, feeling safe in my own home, in this little piece of heaven is a gift. AND do you think they stopped running yet? giggle
Stay away bad guys.
Thanking God for my dogs......again.
