We live on a quiet dead end street but we do have some neighbors. Our closest neighbors live directly across the street and our properties are adjoining. They know our dogs and our dogs know them. Still, when the dogs are outside, they must inform us when the neighbors appear.
Tsar is often the first alert.
Here they come, the car is turning into the driveway.
I don't see them.
Turn around, Norma Jean. You're looking in the wrong direction.
Let's go guys, we have to say hello.
I see them.
Hurry, they're getting out of the car.
Hi neighbors, where have you been? Did you bring home anything good to eat? Do you want to come play with us?
Either Rob or I are always with the dogs when they're outside, so if they begin to bark we can put a quick stop to it. We want them to be good neighbors.
