Sentry Duty on Sunday

These photos were taken from inside, please excuse the quality. The pups were happy to have a nice morning outside and each took up their positions as yard guards.

Both checking out the south quadrant.

Phantom looking more closely.

Now for the north side.

Looking very serious and intent.

A slight change of location to check out things from a different angle.

OK, work detail is done. Now it looks like it might be the humans turn to take care of their work with these leaves.

. . . while I do THIS.

Woos, the OP Pack

You guys are the best guard dogs, bet your humans feel really safe with the two of you around. We love that last photo - oooh, we'd so love to snuggle up and have a cosy snooze with you! :) Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Wow, we know we would never ever go into your yard if you were guarding it... we'd wait to be invited in.

Our mommy can't get over how beautiful and regal you two are.

We'd guard too if we had a yard, so for now we're just practicing the sleeping part. hehehe

Grrrrreat job!

It is fun to make the moms have to use the flashie beastie from the inside!

I think it rekhwires lots of "special" dedikhation to the khause!

Keep up the pawesome job!


Martha and Bailey said...

It is very important business guarding your property!

We hope your humans enjoyed picking up the leaves - we have a blowey machine that blows them into one big pile - then you can jump in!!!

We have decided to start a campaign Phantom & Thunder - no pics without treats - what do you say - are you with us?

Great job protecting your yard from any invading critters! You certainly deserve lots of rest after all that hard work!

Ahh, nothing like a nice nap after breathing in some nice fresh autumn air!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thanks for keeping your family safe and protected! You both certainly earned a break! Enjoy the weekend.

Noah the Airedale said...

Good idea, you point out the leaves and then the humans clean it up. Hehe.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

TD, I can't wait to see your costume...I bet you will be elegant and imposing. Please popse patiently so mom can get a good photo of you in your Halloween attire! What about you, Phantom? A costume or the Good Excuse Competition?

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

we can understand why you would be outside if the sun was shinning. Of course a well deserved nap after all that patroling..

Your back yard must be the safest place in Kansas with you two on patrol.

Alex93andme said...

Your yard looks very well guarded with you guys in it!!! I love the last picture...all guarded out and taking a snooze!

Holly and Khady said...

You guys are both quite the hard workers! I think you deserve that rest time after all you did!

Tanuki Maxx said...

with you two on guard, i'm sure no one or nothing would dare trespass - unless perhaps if they bring treats with them...? Have a great week ahead!!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Great guard duty pics! I like your idea in the end! I did a lot of that today! :)


Mango said...

We have some of those most sneaky through the window photos too. Just can't hide anywhere.

That does look like hard work and most deserving of a nap.


Halloween Spooktacular! said...

Hi! we posted your entry on our blog. Can you please put a link up to the contest- there's one week left- and tons of prizes that need good homes!

Anonymous said...

Awesome job keeping an eye on your yarddome!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Excellent delegating, Thunder. I let my dad do all the yard work unless he needs help with digging to chasing squirrels.


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

That should have said "digging OR chasing squirrels".

MAX said...

Hey there Phantom and Thunder,
We are truly amazed at the effort you guys all put in to this Halloween time. We don't really have much of it here in SA. AND Thunder - you look stunning in your knight's armour - we went off to Hansels site to give you a vote.
By the way, sorry we haven't been around to visit you yet - for some reason your contact with us got lost in the woodwork. Looking forward to becoming good friends.
Also - just to tell you - I also am the stuffy king in this household (and DO NOT destroy them...they are piled high in my special corner)
MAXDOG IN SOUTH AFRICA have a great blog...Mom loved the cheesecake!

Twix said...

TD it cracks me up the way you like to sleep in that cubby hole! I could fit in there but you just don't! Looks like you boys have the yard protected and are great at your jobs!
