I call this Maggie's base of operations. From this precarious perch on the back of the couch, we watch the neighborhood for errant cats and pedestrians.
Maggie sees a young man walking by. This erupts into muted cough-like barking. We see a lot of foot traffic on this road due to a housing project nearby. It keeps Maggie busy.
She turns to see if I am going to bark as well. I do and she erupts in a furious barking tirade guarding the house and yard. This happens multiple times a day. She nor I never tire of it. I guess we both need lives.
