The last couple of mornings I have been very regular about forcing Mom out for her walk. I don't think she gets enough exercise, and of course it is a perfect job for Me, Pennie to take on.
We like to walk in the BIG subdivision that is behind our house. Since it is a new subdivision, not only are the houses BIG, but there are sidewalks. There is only a sidewalk on MY section of MY street in MY neighborhood. Of course since there is so little sidewalk on MY street, I have to protect it with all the more vengeance, in case the humans on the rest of the neighborhood decide they want to take MY sidewalk.
Anyhoodles, I am not sure that the folks in the BIG subdivision really want us regular folks walking in their neighborhood, but since they are always driving through MY neighborhood and breezing right on through MY STOP SIGN, with nary a touch on the brake pedal, I think that I have full rights and privileges to traipse into the BIG subdivision.
I have noticed something very disconcerting about the dogs in the BIG subdivision. The little dogs seem normal -- the little dogs all seem to have small dog syndrome and bark excessively at all who walk by. It's the larger dogs I worry about. Almost all of the larger dogs just sit on their perfectly manicured lawns and stare at ME and Sophie as we pass. If I am outside and a dog passes on MY Sidewalk, in front of MY house; I storm the sidewalk (as close as my electronic fence allows,) raise my hair, and fully protect my 0.46 acres of Suburbia!
What is wrong with these passive dogs? Are they Stepford Dogs? By all rights those dogs have much MORE to protect than I do, yet they barely give a bark, bark, if they say anything, and rarely move from their place. It's just not normal! Is it part of the BIG Subdivisions Covenant and Restrictions that all dogs over Little Dog Size must be Stepford Dogs? I shudder to think that, but it has to be the explanation -- all the dogs on MY street behave just as I do, storming passers-by and letting them know who is in charge.

weird..... very strange indeed.
Good girl, Pennie, we aren't Stepford dogs either. Got to watch your house..

This morning Sophie and I walked Mom through the BIG Subdivision to the normal subdivision behind it. The dogs in the "normal" subdivision were storming their yards and acting like durn fools when Sophie and I walked by. Then when we walked Mom back through the BIG Subdivision to get to our home street, the dogs of Big Subdivision nary raised an ear as we walked by their yards. There HAS to be something going on.
they must be under the influence of those aliens from out of subdivision........
Just make sure you wear your aluminum foil hat at all times, before they brain wash you, too!
