My New Garden

Well hello there! How the devil are you? I'm in excellent form. I'm settling in well here with Katy and Martin, or ma and pa as I have decided I will call them.

I have assumed duties as garden security warden. Every morning I do a sweep of the lawn to make sure there are no invaders. Pa says enjoy the lawn, as when winter comes it apparently turns into a muddy mess and the gate is going on the fence, drat! Paws crossed for a dry winter I say!

All seems well at the top end of the garden. The big blue thing is a trampoline for the little ladies E & J, and jolly good fun it looks too.

I remain alert for any noises. I have already spotted that there are squirrels lurking here. There's no room for them in my garden let me tell you! Fair enough, I'd probably be more likely to befriend an intruder than scare them off, but still, doesn't hurt to maintain ones appearance.

A quick patrol of the border ensures that no imposters have entered the territory. All seems secure for now, jolly good.

A quick pose for the camera. I am learning already that if you live here, you need to get used to smiling for the camera.

There's a pretty tabby cat that lives next door. I'm sure she'll want to be friends when she realises what a nice chap I am. Perhaps I should ask Flakes to give me a character reference.

I very much like my new garden. What a lucky chap I am.

Toodle pip,

Hi Harry, looks like you are settling in quite well! I love to patrol my yard too. We do not have squirrels but we have birds and lizards!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Harry,
Nice butt shot! hehehehehe! Yep, you better get used to the camera. Hoomans just love to take pictures of us doggies. Looks like you have your new yard under control. Maybe you can come help us with Koi Guard Duty. You're much bigger than we are, so maybe you can scare those Monster Birds away easier, tee hee! We bet you can hardly wait to see which pup is going to come terrierize you (oops we mean live with you) hahaha! Have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

PS Thanks for being the BBQ Chef at our campout!

Luckie Girl said...

Hi Harry,
Your garden looks very quaint. I am sure you'll be friends with your neighbour's cat one day. :)

Kirby said...

Hi Harry,

What a great yard you have! And you are guarding it so well. It must be nice to have a yard, I live in a condo, so my 'yard' is where ever I get walked. I have met up with a few squirrels in my wonderings, and I like the chase them about. I have an tabby cat next door to me too! I don't think he likes me, but sounds like you're OK with Flakes on your side. Enjoy your yard and have lots of fun, but remember, NO digging! The parents don't like that.

Your Pal,

Gus said...

Oh good work Harry! Your garden looks lovely, and you are doing a good job. I didn't see a squirrel in any of the pictures. Congratulations


Scruffy & Lacie said...

Whoa, must work those gluts at the gym! (Lacie noticed, not me.) Great yard, Man! We patrol ours,too. We have Gruffy Groundhog that I have to scare out every morning. Plus we have turkeys and deer that are always dropping by. It's never ending work. Lacie patrols for bugs. Why, I'm not sure, but I've learned NOT to question.


Koobuss said...

You are doing a fine job of patrolling your property, Harry. You seem to have everything under control. It's too bad that you won't be able to do your job in the winter when it is a "muddy mess". Muddy messes are so much fun! Drats!!

Koobuss Kisses,

Cubby said...

I'm glad you are taking care of things!

Boo said...

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, you are a good watchdog. I'm sure your hoomans needs one. All those squirrels must be destroyed! I'm glad that you're doing very well in your new home...

Love licks,

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Harry

Great to see you in charge of the garden already.

I have entered the beard growing contest, but Harry if there was an eyebrow contest you would definitely win it paws down. Your eyebrows are quite magnificent.


Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Penny & Poppy said...

Hi Harry,

We are very happy that you are doing such a good job of guarding K & M and your yard. We love your big bushy eyebrows! Watch out for those EVIL squirrels!

Balboa & Mommy said...

Just becareful of evil leaves, they are lurking around now, they might jump into your yard. I'd offer you help, but it looks like you're one good guard dog.

Get rid of those cats bro.

And pleased you are settling in so well.


Noah the Airedale said...

Hiya Harry mate,
Check out the trampoline more carefully, you might find it makes a great day bed. Nothing like a snooze in the sun to ponder over life.
Take it easy.

Ps. the gals say g'day to you

Stanley said...

Harry, my Boy!!

I should have warned you about giving butt shots on your blog! The girlpups just love to look at well developed muscle bums. I see that you have already received some (well-deserved) admiration along that front.

Looks to me like you have everything well in hand. Wish you could help me will squirrel patrol in GooberStan. We are overrun this time of year, and they have a lot of ATTITUDE!

Take care of yourself, buddy.

Goober love,
