Boy, this week just seemed to go on and on. Thanks everyone for your input to my question in yesterday's post.
Josie is the patroller in our house. She's the one who will know where the squirrel is first, or if someone is walking a dog, or there's an intruder cat on the back deck. She stakes out all the best perches to watch from. This is her new spot ... on the small old desk in the parlor. Not only is this a good spot to watch the outside activity, but it also insures that she'll be the last one to see anyone before they leave the house so she can put her stink on them at the door. And that's a very important job.
