Dogs Taking Notice

19 February, 2016

The Author loves dogs: they are kind, loving, loyal and curious. Take these hounds for examples of the curious characteristic: peering out of windows, surveying the area and sometimes saying hello to passersby with a cheerful ‘woof! Woof!’ (others might interpret a dog’s greeting as less friendly).

A cat lover could argue that cats are always lounging about on windowsills looking outside. But the Author imagines cats’ attitude toward the world outside the window to be one of disdain and disinterest.  A dog’s internal monologue is more along the lines of: ‘hey! Hey! Hey! What’s that? A person! Hello! Exciting! A squirrel! So much to see! Hey! Hey!”

The Author is peeved because she cannot locate her photograph of a German Shepherd surveying the St Andrews Cathedral from the third floor of a house across the way. No doubt she’ll find it after she presses ‘Publish’.

And as an extra: A Permanent Guard Dog

    If you find the St. Andrews one, Charlotte Lancaster would like to see it.
