Security Sheltie At Your Service!

Hi all! Boy has it ever been a wild week here at my den!

I have been working my tail off 24-7 to ensure the safety of my pack!

You see we have new neighbors in our condo/apartment building, and not just in one unit, we have them in TWO! The new neighbors are in the unit directly across the hall, and there is yet ANOTHER NEW NEIGHBOR located in the unit that is also across the hall, but  to the right!

There were all sorts of strange smells and sounds that I found to be quite disconcerting!

I had to take my post at the door to make sure that they weren’t evil, and to be assured that they would NOT invade my territory!

dakota by door 1As you can see, I take my job quite seriously!

I never leave my post!

If you look at the photo closely, you will see a number of things:

  •  I am NOT taking my eyes off of the door
  • the metal at the bottom of the door has been bent and torn from when two crazed woofies used to live across the hall. They would drive me crazy and charge at my door multiple times per day! No worries, they have since been removed from the premises (they moved to ANOTHER location!)
  •  If you look at the wood by the side of the door you will notice that the thin strip is a mess! (It also has been replaced numerous times) due to the previously mentioned perpetrators!

Now that the former criminals have moved out, and new people are in the process of moving in, I won’t rest until I am sure that all is ok!

Meet Dakota Sheltie, Super 24-Hour Security!

      Thank you my darling Eva! Want me to come and help you protect your house too? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  11. yes, that’s important to protect our pack…. new neighbors have to pass the sheltie-security check first. that’s common…. maybe they should ask you before they send new people to your house?

      Easy I LOVE that idea! I should have to approve them first! I will suggest that! Thanks pal! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    Fantastic! You will be chief soon if you keep that up

    • Dakota says:

      I AM the Chief! I am Chief Guard Dog of our building! The other woofies in the building (wait, there is only ONE other woofie in the building now), is too small to handle such an enormous task! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  13. It’s a ruff job, but I know Dakota’s up for it! Nothing sneaking by him.

    • Dakota says:

      You got that right! I need Eko and Penny to come and help me! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  14. Great job, Dakota, you’re on duty all the time. Don’t forget to take a break sometime, ok?

      oh and thank you about the Pitbulls too! 🙂

  16. And they called him “Detective Dakota” the sheltie that never left his post….

    Okay Caren, I’ve just given you your book synopsis – now go start on the first of his series!

  17. We are on constant patrol of people walking in our neighborhood. We were just out on our walk and a greyhound and another dog had the nerve to be walking at the same time. No okay on MY street!

    • Dakota says:

      Oh my that IS NERVE!!! You should have the street all to yourself! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  18. They must feel safe with you on guard Dakota!

      Yes, they do, but they won’t admit it! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. Wow Dakota, it’s good your peeps have you. They can rest easy knowing you are on the job. How rude of those other dogs to come charging at your door. Where were their humans that they didn’t stop those doggies. You work very hard pal – you should demand a raise.

    • Dakota says:

      Yes Mario you are exactly right! If they didn’t have me, what on earth would they do? Oh, those humans didn’t mind one bit that those doggies did that! Imagine that! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  20. What a good lookin’ hard working security guard you are sweet Dakota. You are doing an excellent job protecting your home and family. Hugs and nose kisses

      Why THANK YOU Mumsy! You are always so sweet!!!! Thank you and please tell my Mom that you appreciate my hard work! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. Dakota, you are so brave! We are so glad those awful neighbors across the way moved. A couple of our door frame things are a little messed up, but that had more to do with Pungy and her kitty claws….that we don’t discuss. It seems there are always new neighbors moving in and out of our complex here. Always something to see, isn’t there?
    Hugs and kisses to you, sweetheart!

      Oh yes you are right! Do you think that Pungy would like to come over and help me destroy our door? Cody will have no part of it! He LIKES people! Do you believe it? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  22. Maybe they’ll be the treat-toting, bellyrub-giving kind of neighbors! Don’t scare them off before you find out!

  26. Your job is furry impawrtant fur sure!

    You would be on stressed out patrol here at my den…a big black lab on one side, and the other side has 8 kids, a dog and a cat…not to mention all the wandering varmints that dare to invade!

  33. You should use my strategy, Dakota. I just sit in the den and randomly bark every once in a while. My humans jump up and run to the door to see what’s happening. I just sit there while *they* protect *me*. Works like a charm. 😉
