We have a foothold situation!
I barked. We all barked. Mom looked out to see what in the world was happening. She saw the tail end of a dog going into our walk-through garage door. We were barking up a storm on the other side of the fence.
That was not right! That was our garage. We were not expecting any dog today. Only our garage cats come and go using that door.
Mom came out. We kept barking. Mom went into the garage. We could barely hear her talking to that dog over our barking. Then she closed the door. We quit barking.
Pretty soon, she came out, with the dog following her. We started up our barking barrage again. The dog ducked back into the garage. Mom closed the walk through door with the dog still inside. She made us go in the house. We didn't really want to. We had a real situation here that needed attention. We can't do our policing jobs from inside the house.
But we finally managed to hear Mom calling us and we went inside and had cookies.
Mom went back outside without us. We got to go out in a few minutes. We barked at the garage again but the dog was gone.
Mom filled us in on what happened inside the garage.
He was a friendly Australian Shepherd type boy. Probably just a large puppy. Mom adjusted his too tight collar. No tags of course. Not neutered of course. She brushed out some cockleburrs from his fur. She offered him some of the cat food and water that is out there. He was a friendly dog. She opened the garage door to let him go. He wandered around for a couple of minutes and then took off down the road. She saw him later across the field heading to a neighbor's house. Maybe he belongs over there. We haven't seen him again today.
I haven't needed to bark again today. But if the need arises, I can and do bark!
