Greta visited yesterday and was so excited when she looked over the wall and saw a REAL LIVE CAT! George (the cat) was out lounging on the back porch of my neighbor's home.
Our first poodle, Paddie, used to enjoy looking over the wall at the world and that is when we originally called this region "dog tv". She could stand for hours looking over the wall. The wall was shorter then, built up for a variety of reasons (including Teddy our dog who could be neurotic when he saw the cat or anything else). Anyway, this was truly exciting for Greta! I was so proud of her because she didn't bark once at him, she was just thrilled to see a cat--so close and one that actually moved!!!
Seamus was less than thrilled. He loves George and even visits him but losing Greta as a playmate was NOT what he called a good visit. SO HE barked at George--an unusual behavior for Seamus.
Fortunately the two poodles made up later on and ended up lounging indoors once the heat got too high to be outsides.
Hope the weather is tolerable for you! We are expecting cooler temps later this week. Have a great week everyone!!
