Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26- Distance

IMG_8303

There is nothing Ari likes more than hanging out in the back yard. She loves to survey her land from strategic points around our property. I imagine that in her head she is a fierce warrior protecting her people from certain doom.  She will sit, stand, or lay for hours, keeping her vigilant watch for any trespassers, whether they are humans, dogs or cheeky squirrels.  And if she’s lucky, some unsuspecting soul will accidentally step onto our property….or just into her line of vision and she will pounce into action, launching into a verbal assault that could rival a dog twice her size. And if it’s a really good day, her friend Buster from next door will be out and the two pups will stare at each other longingly across the yards, exchanging wags and excited barks. There is never a dull moment when Ari is on the job.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

This week the prompt is “distance” for Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 26- Distance.

    1. Ari would love the company! She has a friend who sometimes comes to stay and the two of them share the job- each looking in different directions. It is a big job for just one dog. 🙂
