Not to overdo it, but here are the Hero Dogs checking out the bench Keith was putting together on the deck tonight.
Gertie Lou, Bravest of the Brave
Abby and Gertie check out the leg.
Hannah, observing only.
Ranger, watching from the corner, where he guards the door
And Lil, who went from deck to yard the entire time
we Keith worked on the bench for me. (The bench I bought on Mother's Day, and thought I was going to put together myself!)
Lilly Ann, Bravest of All, checks the bench out.
Here she is as I was on my way to lock up the little birds:
She is a big strong dog in her prime. My theory is that the guy that got in the yard yesterday morning was not IN the yard while she was out, he climbed the fence after Keith called her in. She is the one he needed to be scared of!
So get this... I forgot to take a picture of the bench when finished. Now it's dark, and too late. We left it on the deck, and I'll get some outdoor pillows to put on it, it is NOT comfortable. I bought it at one of my favorite stores, so won't say which one, but when we turned it over, it had a sticker "Made In China", and after two bolts broke while being screwed in, Keith looked over at me and said "you get what you pay for". He's right!
