Sentry Duty

We have shown you pictures this week of several of The Herd falling asleep after our Sunday afternoon hike.  But one member of The Herd must remain alert and on sentry duty.  That task fell to Kiska who was taking her job very seriously.


Aren’t those eyes intent?  The stare piercing?  The face serious?  The ears, well, furry?  Yep, you can see that wooly coat gene showing in the ears.  Regardless, she maintained her sentry duty stare.  Even when I walked around to her other side:

    I think those furry ears are so cute! I bet my mom would love to rub them.

    Look at those furry ears! Can you still hear OK Kiska? They are awfully cute!

    So, what do you do for fun, Kiska? I mean you don’t guard alll the time, do you?

    I’m like those guys above, I fall asleep guarding, except if its storming, when I look for someone to guard me!

    It’s good to see a pup with focus.

    Our Goldens really do try to do sentry duty…but they always fall asleep anyway.

    I too just looked at the profiles of all your pack (current & waiting at the Rainbow Bridge), and they are ALL amazing!!! Kiska is bootiful and looks like a great guard mom. 🙂

    Gorgeous – i actually just went through all your dogs profiles and they are all amazing – i have 4 rescued English Bull Terrier – but grew up with Malamute Wolf mixes and huskies they are incredible dogs.
