Monday Question

How do you react when people come over the house?
Pocket:  First, I run to the door, and River, who can see out the window by standing on her two back legs, looks out the window, and we both bark thirty barks a second.  We have a porch so people go on that first and then to the front door.  We continue barking and then stand right in front of the door.  When the door opens we rush on to the porch to greet our friends and sniff their paints and feet. We continue this for another 30 seconds and then we lose interest and lie down.

  1. At first Lightning makes a lot of noise, then he gets nervous and hangs back, and finally IF it is family, he comes over for some petting. If it is not family, he retreats to his bed. Now Timber is a whole different story - he LOVES everyone. He tries very hard to control himself, but the jumping gets the best of him - he is so exuberant!!! But Mom tells him OFF, and he is a good boy and listens.

    Woos, Lightning and Timber

  2. Shyla makes a ton of noise, and then she gets shy and hides away. Hachi is the pack security guard, and he'll kill anyone who comes through the door (just kidding, sort of). R snoozes through it all.

  4. Xena: Wow, 30 barks per second, I've only gotten up to 28 per second. Then I get jealous when they pet Lucy and not me.
    Lucy: I wag all over and can't wait for the person to come in and pet me.

  5. Zoe and I don't mind visitors, we stay and we're social. The others hide for hours!

  6. Manny and CB are always ready to investigate a visitor! Sweetie, not so much, and The PO'M routinely hides when someone strolls into the backyard who he doesn't know. But he comes out again shortly, 'cause he's hoping for snacks.

  8. Our Little Bit would bark her head off until the door opened and then it was meet and greet. Anyone. Friend or foe.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  10. Wow...we could be twin households! The only difference is that the peeps put a baby gate in so that we are barred from the front door until our excited dies down a bit. BOL!
