Guard Dog


Spent yesterday in Oregon. Snapped this photo of a sleepy old dog relaxing on a sunny afternoon -- he could care less that I was taking his photo.

  1. First your background Notebook post is lovely. Second. I like your fence and the good old boy sleeping.

    Glad you enjoyed your day in Oregon.

  2. Most of my dogs have been the kind that would welcome anyone and everyone. Not exactly useful as a guard. LOL!

    1. Florence -- I never know about the behavior of dogs when I am out and about in strange territory. This guy looked friendly but I am glad he was on the other side of the fence from me -- thanks -- barbara

    1. Joanne -- I think I want to be reincarnated as a dog (who has a good owner) and just sleep, observe, eat and play. Also to be petted and loved by many other folks who love dogs. Such a life. thanks -- barbara

    1. turquoisemoon -- thanks for the warm words. This photo was just waiting to be taken -- I thought the dog would at least put his head up but I think he was just loving the sun -- thanks -- barbara

  7. We have a little dog who sleeps in the sun with one eye very slightly open. He snores indoors but outside he is on guard. Lovely life for some dogs. Nice picture, made me smile.

    1. claggle -- I would say that your dog is on guard outside with that one eye slightly open. I've read that having a dog is better than having a security system. Probably true in most cases. thanks for the kind words -- barbara

  8. Dogs know when there's danger and you were not dangerous, so why should he bestir himself? Looks like a nice afternoon for people and dogs.

  13. I'm not sure I would test his outward appearance of indifference by getting any closer.
