The Bayou Boys' Backyard

Basset and Westie in yard
 Bentley Basset Hound: “Pierre, you know that we haven’t shared too many action pics of us in our backyard lately. I don’t want people to think we’ve slacked up on our patrols. It’s been rainy, you were sick, and the holidays hit but most days we make sure our backyard is safe from intruders.”

 Pierre Westie: “There are no days off from home security and surveillance. Don’t move a muscle…I think there are children riding bikes. We may need to bark like crazy to let them know to be careful. Let’s run along the fence with them!”
Basset and Westie
 Bentley: As you can see in this photo, my ears are flying as I run at lightning speed along the fence. I might be 11 years old but I can still snoopervise a perimeter patrol like a dog half my age.”

Pierre: “Oops! The puparazzi caught me talking to the Labrador girl that lives behind us. I am pretty sure that she has a crush on me because she always comes to the fence when I am outside. It’s the curse of being so darn fluffy and cute.”  
Basset Hound and Westie
Bentley: “What do you mean we need to quieten down? We are just being neighborly and barking at everything that moves. People love the sound of my voice.”
Pierre: “Seriously, Mom! Let us do our job and save our family. This is us!”

  1. we love your fence and the gaps for watching da hood... we have them too and they are impawtant... but SHE and HE will make a new fence without spy holes...sigh...

  2. I agree, keeping up patrols is so very important for us leading companions. I have a very large patch to do, plus fences to scale and roofs to sit on! It's tough being on top (of things) but someone has to do it and I can't ask the staff as she'll most likely fall off! MOL

  3. We are on active yard patrol multiple times every day too. Mom gets mad and makes us come inside if we start howling. Not sure why she doesn't appreciate our efforts to stave off intruders! Happy patrolling!

  4. Good job on keeping your property safe from intruders, boys!

  5. Always got to check to perimeter, boys!

  6. We have to bark away the ax murderer who brings the mail every day.

  7. Sometimes I get the feeling that my humans don't always appreciate my barking. But how else would they be alerted about the neighbor kids running around, or a car door slamming three blocks away? That's important homeland security work, right?

  8. OMDs you two are easily winners of top patrol dogs your instincts are 100% right
    Love the fence photos

  9. You're doing a wonderful job with the yard patrol ! Purrs

  10. It's important to keep the yard a safe zone. Well done, boyz!

  11. You boys are lucky to have each other! Luke has to patrol our whole yard and all around the house all by himself - it's a lot of work for one dog! :)

  13. What a perfect sized observation crack in the fence. You kids are very thorough in your protection service work. I hope your family appreciates your efforts.

    Love and licks,

  14. We like to talk to our neighbor dogs too, but Mom says we do too much fence running and make a muddy trail:(

  15. What wonderful neighbors you both are! We have no idea why your pawrents would want you to settle down!

  16. Mom's often don't appreciate how important our patrols are. Gosh dang it we were trying to tell our Mom about a black bear and she kept interrupting us and saying "HUSH".

  17. It is an important job keeping everything safe

  18. We think you are just doing your job and doing it well.
