Ah, sleeping at night with the windows open is so nice! Giving the air conditioner a little break for awhile is always a good thing, and good for your pocket too. It is just nice that I can now sit in front of the window and feel that nice cool breeze blow on my face, not to mention all of the good smells I take in on a daily basis. Barking at people passing by our house or doggies that I don’t like through a closed window does not make me sound fierce, but with an open window, I can protect the homestead with some deep growls & barks and everyone can hear me really well.
Sometimes I think that I am nosey, as I watch EVERYONE and everything! I run from window to window to keep up with the neighbors arrivals & departures and when I see them I run from the front window to the back window to catch a glimpse of them getting out of their car, I watch trash blowing down the street from the car wash that blows by on a daily basis and it always makes me growl at it, I growl and bark at garbage cans (have done that since I was a puppy and tall enough to see out the window), but it always amazes Daddy & Mommy “who” I bark at. It’s strange that some dogs can walk by our house and all I do I watch them, while other dogs can go by and I go absolutely crazy. What makes me bark at them and yet leave the others alone? Not sure why I do this, it will remain a mystery.
One of my all time favorite things to do is, waiting for Daddy to come home. Mommy always alerts me that “it’s time” to watch for Daddy’s arrival and I put down any toy that I am playing with (or bring it to the front window with me) and I run to the window, sit down, and look back and forth for Daddy’s car. Almost 100% of the time, I can catch his car coming down the road and my tail starts wagging and I get all excited. I watch him pull into the driveway and then I run to the back door to catch him driving by (he always stops right by the door and waves at me – awww!) and then I run like a bat out of hell to the back window to watch him get out of his car. As soon as I see him walking towards the house, I jump off the window sill and tear down the hallway to the back door again (I always beat him to the back door too) and I await the glimpse of him opening the door. YEAH, Daddy’s home! I jump all over him and give him kisses and he gives them right back! I love this time of day because I love my Daddy! Mommy is there too, waiting for Daddy and always makes sure she has his favorite glass of wine waiting for him and the smell of a good home cooked meal is just about to come out of the oven.
Cooler weather, lots of love, and a pumpkin patch are all the favorite things that are consuming my days!
