The Early Dog Gets The Visitor

Cheoah took advantage of the beautiful morning sunrise to enjoy the serenity of her basement, but she discovered the early dog gets the visitor.

So peaceful. So quiet. So absent of brothers. The early dog.

So peaceful. So quiet. So absent of brothers.

The dew glistened on the grass. The sun’s rays cast a brilliant glow. The birds sang in the trees. And Cheoah ambled to her “No Boys Allowed” basement for some solitude from her brothers. When you are not a morning dog (and she isn’t), having a quiet place to relax before facing the day is a blessing.

Hey, sis, you looked lonely.

Hey, sis, you looked lonely.

Great plan right up until the intruder invaded her space and ruined her serenity. At least he remembered to stay out of the basement, but she might need to expand this No Boys Allowed zone.

Don't worry, sis, I am the lookout for that intruder, wherever he is.

Don’t worry, sis, I am on the lookout for that intruder, wherever he is.
