Guard Dogs

Siberian Huskies have a reputation of being lousy guard dogs.  But our cousin Tartok is an excellent guard dog.  Our humans go over to Tartok’s house (also know as our hu-dad’s parent’s house – so our hu-grandparents) on Saturday nights for dinner.  Tartok loves the visit and guards the door.  Not from intruders, but trying to prevent anyone from leaving.

Excellent job, huh?

By the way, tomorrow is a very special day at Chez Herd.  Can anyone guess?

    I’m assuming the cost of passing out of the door is a snack of some kind.

    Is it somepuppy’s birthday tomorrow?

    Wonderful job – i do this to mommy all the time – she has to lift me and move me to get out the door – sometimes she just drags me over to the side.

    good job protecting the house
