Grammie's Wild Hair!

Grammie came home one day and said, "Miss Moco. I think we are going to move." Grammie is known for hair brain schemes so I didn't think much of her statement. Then one day 2 men came to help carry the furniture out of the house. Clara was put in that box thingy they call a carrier and we all went into the car. We drove for what I am sure was a very long way and stopped at a new house. This house had a long entry way that is perfect for chasing stuffies. It had a larger yard that was all fenced. Best of all it has a window that looks out to the street and I can sit there all day barking at intruders that step onto my area. Pappy yells, "Moco stop that barking. People are allowed to walk on the sidewalk." I just know when I am on guard they will not get closer to the house than the sidewalk. I am not sure why Pappy has not figured that out yet.
Grammie continues to have hair brain ideas, but none as large as "the move." More to come on another day.

Pappy just does not like noise my mom says. I know you are just protecting him and the house. According to mom Grammie does get wild hairs quite often.

Moco!

Doesn't Pappy know how serious guard duty and squirrel patrol are??! I NEVER let anyone or anydog get closer to my house than the street. After that, IT's ON!!

SO what exactly do these wild hairs of Grammie's look like?

Goober love,
Stanley

Those wild hairs sound dangerous! I bark at people outside all the time, too. Mom always says "They're across the street, they're no where near your yard!" DUH! That's cuz I'm barking at them! If I don't then they'll come over to my yard and do who knows what! Keep up the good work Moco!
OH and tell Grammie, my mom doesn't take vitamin C because she takes some medicine that doesn't react well with a lot of vitamins and supplements. She only takes what the doctors tell her to take cuz she's paranoid. They have her taking a multi-vitamin that is okay with the medicine and she's sure has vitamin c in it.

That hair-brained idea turned out to be pretty good afterall. You have a fenced yard?! Not me. Maybe I'll have to talk Motch into getting a hair-brained idea, too.

Moco! I always want to call you Moco Ono, for some reason. :-) We have glorious windows like yours in our house too. Fig protects our house with obscenely loud barking... I guess somebody's gotta to do it.

Sounds like Grammie moved just for you, she sure is nice to do that for you!

Hi, Moco!
Sure I'd love to have a yard like yours! tinny patio is what I have!
Why they don't understand that we have to be on alert all day long?
Kisses and hugs

Moco,

Your yard is awesome! And I'm glad that you are an effective alarm system. I have to bark at people not only on the sidewalk but also across the street. You never know what fool ideas they might be getting in their heads.

wally.

ps. Thanks for figuring out the secret of my sissy's exploding butt! It was her BRAIN that exploded! That also explains why it was such a small explosion...

i tends to bark at passerby too...but i'm not scolding them..

i'm just warning them not to get any closer...or else, 'approach at your own risk'...

Hi Moco, Can you come to Portland for a few days? I don't bark much, but my Mom wishes I would 'cuz there is a cocker spaniel who whizzes all over her beautiful plants every morning even though she's asked him to stop. He just laughed at her and lifted his leg, so maybe some good old fashioned barking will help?!?

I like to bark at everyone on my boundary, it is "hell" for my Jeannie and family, but hey, I am a Dog, I do what Dogs do!

I live on the edge of a bark park, can you imagine the fun I have all day!!!!!
