Standing in for Binky


Across the street and a little to the side there lives a collie-mix pup named Binky. Binky is a very pretty girl who has a very important job! Binky's house is situated in the perfect spot to be able to see a mian road, our street and several side streets. This allows Binky to keep tabs on the whole neighborhood! She lets us know everything! If someone is coming around the corner, she barks. If a car that doesn't "live" around here turns into the neighborhood, she barks. If a dog is coming around on their walk, she barks. If one of the dog owners on the block are coming home, she barks. I think you get the idea! She provides an invaluable service to us dogs in the area!


Anyway, on Sunday, Binky wasn't at "work"! So, I barked over to see if she was ok. She said she was stuck inside because no one would be home until the evening. Oh, the horror! She asked if I would step in for her for the afternoon while I was outside with my Lisa. Being the gentleman and good friend that I am, I of course agreed!


Me, the "new sheriff on the block":


Here, I am sitting to avoid my cover being blown!




KEEPING MY EYES PEELED!
(Hey... is that the ice cream truck down there? ? ?)




Break Time! (I'll lay here and wait for lunch to be served . . . )




Time for a neighborhood perimeter check . . . .




Relaxing after a hard day's work . . . . .



Whew! Binky sure makes this look easy! I hope I did a good job, my Lisa said I did, I hope Binky thinks so.

Hi Winston...
My name is Ruby, nice to meet you. That sounds like a very important job you had! Did your friend Binky approve of the work you did? I hope so!

Lots of Licks,Ruby

It's a good thing you're on the lookout, Winston. No one would dare mess around in your 'hood with a scary dog like you around! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My mommy thinks you are the cutest dog ever, and she wanted me to tell you that she had a bulldog just like you once, but he had to go live with a friend of hers because Tommy (the bulldog) tried to bite the kids a couple of times. I bet you're much nicer :)

Puggy kisses

Hi, Winston.
I am sure you did a great job taking Binky's place for one day!
Sure you took it very seriously.
Now you can take a long nap.
Have a good night

Hey dude! I saw you linked on Suki's blog and I wanted to come and say HI! You're a darn good looking guy and a fine guard dog, I see, and already ready for the ice cream truck! Order me something good.

Hi Winston!

I hope you have a super weekend...watch my post from now until Monday (more likely Monday) because you are going to be featured on it little one:)

Mom has to still add you to my friends' list ... such the procrastinator (this is why I say by Monday this should be done) - but then again she might surprise me and have it done before then:)

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

I wouldn't mess with you while you were watching the block, you make a great watch dog.

I hope you got lots of ice cream for all your hard work.
