Deaf Dogs on Squirrel and Rabbit Patrol
The squirrel and rabbit vigil never stops around here. Whatever vantage point is available, it is generally used to guard against the ceaseless squirrel onslaught, and to a lesser extent, the bunny menace.
Shadowfax spent half the day today on her front porch lookout post, patrolling the area for any manner of varmint.
Once the varmint was spotted, a proper barking spasm (this one of her few offensive weapons) ensued. Tearing around the house and yard barking eventually led her back to her perch at a high rate of speed and she knocked the pillow off. We probably replace that pillow a dozen times a day.
Shaak Ti is probably more anti-squirrel/bunny than Shadowfax, but her efforts are more focused when she's outside, usually on our walks. Every once in a while she'll patrol from an indoor perch, but for the most part she yields the indoor security functions to Shadowfax.
