a year ago I posted how the boys take their self appointed roll as watch dogs very seriously.
This time around I'm showing them at the ready by the front door. I don't think I would have chosen that particular style of front door with the flanking side windows if we had built the house. I'm sure the original design process did not include ease of viewing for dachshunds as a feature. That said, the windows really are at the perfect height for the boys to gaze out and survey their domain.
When ever starlings, squirrels, or other dogs dare set foot on our lawn the boys are at the ready to charge out and defend our home.
