We Siberian Huskies are not known for our guard dog abilities and this security system failure provides a great example of our lack of skills.
Surveyors in the mountains have some interesting challenges. Property boundaries often go through thick brush or over cliffs, making walking the property line treacherous. In order to locate the corners of property, they sometimes go through another property where the walking is easier in order to triangulate to a hidden corner. Our neighbors at the ski area needed a property corner marked for some work they are doing, and the surveyors came through our land to accomplish that.
With strangers approaching our fence, we thought we would show the fierceness of Typhoon’s security effort.
Uh, Typhoon, Chief of Security Kiska says you are supposed to sound the alarm and give them the evil eye.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
hello thundering herd its dennis the vizsla dog hay that is sum gud lukking owt typhoon!!! and by lukking owt i meen hoping that the introoders hav treets!!! ha ha ok bye
Don’t you know that sometimes the stare down can be scarier because you don’t know what the dog is thinking. Of course the stare down does not work if the tail is wagging at the same time altho our german shepherd wags her tail and barks fiercely so you don’t want to take the chance.
We have a company come out and spray the yard regularly for weed control (ha, hear the dandelions laugh at that). Every year we remind the office that we have German Shepherd Dogs, and to please knock on the door first so we can close the patio door (with dogs inside, of course :)). They usually forget.
Two summers ago, one guy let himself into the backyard (this involves removing a caribiner from the gate latch). By the time he was in the yard and had closed the gate behind him, two 80 lbs dogs were running towards him, barking their “intruder bark”. My husband got there just in time to see the guy vault over the 6-foot gate … yeah, they knock now.
PS: The dogs just sound scary – the’re actually very sociable
We had a similar experience with electrical workers straddling our double fence years ago that held pygmy goats in. Apparently, the first time one of them straddled it they missed the electrical wire….the next one didn’t.
That wasn’t enough to stop them or make them think twice it seemed.
However, when one of them squealed it attracted the attention of our goats…who like your sheppards (and the herd) were very friendly and loved people. The sight of a bunchy of goats running towards them down one hill and up another was enough to make the shortest one hurdle the fence that had just lit him up.
I wonder if the guy is thinking, ‘can that wolf scale the fence?’
Pet me Pet me!
Good boy Typhoon! Just look at the fear in that guy’s eyes!!! Not… ????????????
So funny!!!! Security IS a little lax there-lol!!!
