Traveling Watch Dogs

Future fire pit site
Maggie & Duke love to visit our friends' backyard, as it's large, wooded and fully fenced. They run up and down the hill and bark at anyone who approaches the fence. They check the perimeter when we first get there and then guard the yard from everyone, including the friends who own the house!

Duke as Super Stinky Dog
Duke had fun flopping in puddles and then rolling in pine needles and dirt. He had a lot of extra spots by the end of the day, and smelled awful! He had the most fun playing with a stuffed chicken and then burying it to hide it from Maggie when she was too interested. 

What 'chu doin'? Can we shred it?
Maggie has no interest in toys unless Duke is playing with them, then she wants to destroy them. She doesn't play fetch and looks at Duke like he's crazy when he runs after tennis balls and squeaky toys.

Maggie as Ghost Guard Dog
 She would much rather patrol the yard and scare away all squirrels, birds and people.

Mission accomplished! No critters in this yard. Why the heck do my legs look so short? Camera lady is at a weird angle.

Duke surveys his woodland domain.
Our friends bought the house recently and felt bad that they haven't had much time to work on the backyard. The dogs think it's perfect the way it is!


  1. No that is great for the dogs as they can mess it up and have fun before it is landscaped. Enjoy. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Are you kidding? That yard looks perfect! :)
    Looks like tons of fun!

  3. That's a perfect yard for dogs, especially Maggie and Duke when they visit!

  4. Your dogs have the coolest spots!

  5. Lucky dogs! What a perfect place for dogs to run, romp and play! Looks like they had a blast. They're so cute.

  6. That is a great dog yard! Tell your friends that the only thing that could make it better would be a pool for the dogs. Looks like a great place to play.
