Now that the weather is cooling off some, we've been thrilled to be able to have the house open most of the time. I like to be able to keep the front door open onto the front porch where we can watch the world go by our little corner. It's one of my favorite things about the arrival of Spring and Fall.
This year, however, things have been a little different. In specific, that would be the arrival of Miss Morgan. There are a lot of people who walk past our house and she does not like it. A favorite evening's entertainment for her is running back and forth from the kitchen window to the front door, barking at any person, dog or leaf that goes past our house. I really find this less that amusing or charming. The Greyhounds appear to be less than entertained as well, especially when she leaps over them as they lie on the floor doing their best speed bump impressions.
So, Mr. Taleteller reached into his bag of tricks and pulled out the squirt bottle. Just the sound of the water sloshing in said bottle strikes fear into the hearts of the Greyhounds -- well, Blueberry and Bunny anyway. Lilac doesn't hear it and she's shameless anyway. As Morgan stood barking at the front door and avoiding eye contact with him, which somehow means in her mind that she does not have to listen to a command, he squirted her with the bottle. In a million to one shot, he got her right in the behind. Morgan leapt into the air, did a half turn and glared at him in shock. He told her to be quiet and knock it off. She replied by giving one final woof. Ahhh, the joys of the teenage years!
