Sable loves to chase birds. She thinks she is protecting us by keeping them away. She really made them mad during the last chase.
She finally came to the house out of breath and rested a bit. Later, I went to go to town in my shiny "purple plum," and it wasn't shiny anymore! Those angry birds plastered it good!
Sable has been quite confused with all of the people and all of the noise of construction. There must be 10 different people in and out of here in a week. I will put her out and she will follow another worker in the front door with his hands full of work.
Fortunately, Sable earns her keep as a watch dog. Most people are afraid of her until I come to greet them. If they are just a little bit questionable, she picks right up on that and won't leave them alone.
LuAnn wants to keep her out of the living room. She has learned bad habits following these workers in the front door. We need a good dog gate at the kitchen entrance and her office entrance. She has done her business in the wrong part of the house a few too many times when we didn't get up to let her out.
Sable is the best scouting dog I ever had. She loves to scout fields with me and protects me from anything she sees or hears.
Sable is the most stay by your side, protective dog I've ever owned. She is not happy if she is not with one of us. That is good but can be bad. We just can't be by her side all the time and when we aren't she can get into mischief.
She sure did today. She cost me a wash job on the purple plum. What's worse, I saw a big, fat and surely sick skunk wondering all over the waterway in the field across from the house. I should have plugged it right there and put it out of its misery. Instead, I forgot about it and we decided to take a walk that direction after dinner. You guessed it, it hadn't wandered very far and poor Sable got skunked before we could notice. LuAnn saw the vapor cloud, I didn't. She is quick though and she just got enough on her to have to sleep outside last night.
She paid us back by barking at the coyotes in the moonlight last night. She rarely sleeps outside, maybe 5-10 nights in 4 years? I feel sorry for her. If I had just shot that nasty beast.
I have plenty more Sable stories but she hit the headlines today. What's your favorite dog story today?
