PROTECTION DETAIL

96-BonnieInWindow_02

This is Bonnie’s spot, her lookout post. Up on the top of the sofa back, on her own cushion. Nose on glass with the picture window … which is so covered with nose prints, it is very nearly opaque.

She can see everything. She sleeps here, unless she is on the sofa with us and she would probably only leave there to eat or go outside and bark (and bark and bark and bark) if only we would join her rather than stubbornly insisting on sitting on the reclining loveseat — from which we can watch TV.

All the dogs have a “spot” that is their own. Nan’s is at my feet, under my desk in the office — if I’m in the office. Otherwise, on the foot of the recliner if I’m in the living room. Bishop sleeps outside when there’s snow cover. He really likes the snow. A lot. Inside, he sleeps on the landing at the head of the stairs or on the landing between upper and lower floors. I think it’s a guard dog thing.

Bonnie is the only one who cares about having a view. She watches. She looks asleep, but she is just resting, ready to spring into action in a heartbeat. Our little soldier, protecting her world and us.

    • Thanks 🙂 Bonnie sleeps — but with one eye open. She’s the Wonder Woman of scotties, always ready to go go go and take on the world. She is also the happiest, must completely joyous dog I’ve ever know. I can’t imagine life without her.

  2. I think doggie visits to the hospital might aid in healing, as well. 😀

    • But not in the ICCU I fear. It’s okay. I will be SO happy to see them when I get home. My dogs aren’t city dogs … they get freaked out in crowded places. Country dogs are better at home barking at critters and hunting mice in the yard 🙂

  3. Who will take care of Bonnie during your short hospital stay?

    • Me, the Dog Father will take care of all the furry kids as I usually do. We’ve asked for family support when I’m with Marilyn at the hospital. Meanwhile, Bonnie will continue to head up our security patrol and moderate the neighborhood dog watch meetings.

    • Now that’s how I think 🙂 The kids live here and presumably will take over that part of the duties. They are going to have to step up to the plate in a bunch of different ways. It’s about time.
