Keeping Watch

From high atop Mount Sectional Sofa, the faithful Westie keeps watch over the world below.
Nothing goes unnoticed while Duke's on watch.

LOL My Bo does that too, anything seems to be out of order and he's on it! ;D

Alan said...

It's tough at the top, but someone has to do it :)

Erika said...

my 3 year old has taken to climbing to the the top and watching me while I cook. Nothing misses his eagle eyes as well.

Anne said...

Duke, you are such a handsome devil! Our dog does the same thing but he likes to look out the window. He has smeared dog ick all over it so we can't see out.

Sandee said...

That's right. He's a fine protector of the house indeed. He's also very handsome. He's also my buddy.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Doris Sturm said...

Good dog, Duke, good dog!!!

Sharkbytes said...

The little guys know that they need to be on top of the world!

BeadedTail said...

We don't know Duke. Didn't we see you snoozin' on the couch while looking out the window the other day? We won't tell anyone about your nap breaks during your watch!

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof!Woof! Of Course ...That is why his name is DUKE. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Kloggers/Polly said...

Now there is a content Duke ... did you see the dog that knew a thousand words on tonight's news? See Duke is probably deep thinking most of the time .........

Lin said...

Yeah, but does he do anything about it? Or is he just an observer?

THE OLD GEEZER said...

I feel sorry for any cats that happen by :-)

Oh he is such a cutie, Ann...too bad you guys aren't closer...Ginger needs a boyfriend!

Ginny said...

Mount sectional sofa, too funny!!! A very cute and diligent picture!

Josep said...

Sometimes we forget that guys like Duke are much shorter than us :)

Pat said...

Atta boy Duke. You're a good boy!

Ann Nichols said...

Oh duke! You've got it right!
And Ann...aren't you the lucky one to have such a boy around!
Blessings to you both!
Ann

We used to have a Boxer dog that thought even once full grown he could perch on the back of the furniture to keep watch....never did quite work...lol

Jen said...

Nice to know the world is a safer place with Superduke watching over us all *giggle*.
Shadow wants to know where his crime fighting blankie is though ;o)

Anny said...

Your high+ness.. what do you see up there? hehehhehee..

FishHawk said...

This is the best thing you have published since the last time you featured Duke. Keep up the good work!

Russ AKA Grampy said...

Great job Duke. You are looking good and protecting the house. Claudia sits on the back of my recliner so she can guard the front door.

Sandra said...

Donna said...

He's so Handsome!! And Loyal!

Audrey said...

lol!
Our dog has a favorite spot on the yard too. She can see anyone coming in and also see what is happening at the neighbors :)

DSS said...

I wonder if all dogs love it at the tope of the couch? Or just westies...

Tammy said...

I'm sure he could tell some great stories of what goes on.

Miawa said...

Amazing how Duke can be so "busy" while cleverly appearing to merely be dormant (for lack of a better word)!

Ann said...

Julie yep, same with duke sometimes he's barking at things I can't even see

alan you got that right

erika LOL, that's cute. Maybe he'll be a master chef some day

anne this couch isn't right in front of the window but we do keep the blinds open so he has a view and can see what's going on

sandee yes he is, to both of those

doris he heard good dog now he wants a treat.

sharkbytes he sure does and he thinks he's the king of the castle too

beaded tail oh but we have an excuse for that, really we do :)

sugar he is the duke of the this kingdom

kloggers I missed that one. I wonder how many Duke knows

Lin we he makes a heck of a fuss when he sees something. If he had to actually attack or defend I'm not so sure...lol

the old geezer, wonder what he would do with a cat. he used to live with one

tanyia um, isn't he a little short for Ginger...lol

ginny lol I thought so

josep much much shorter :)

pat oh no, he wants another treat again :)

ann yes I am lucky indeed

allotments4you it's funny how those bigger dogs don't realize their size and the little ones think they are much bigger than they are

Jen only the shadow knows :) So then why is he asking

anny all kinds of things, birds, squirrels, cars, people

fishhawk I think I have several posts coming up that you will not be pleased with...lol

russ recliners are also good for guarding the kingdom

sandra yes you did say you loved it :) The mount sectional sofa just popped in my head while I was typing and I liked it.

donna yes he is

audrey duke keeps a close watch on things, sometimes too close of a watch

dss not sure but I do know that he's the first dog I've ever had that has done that. Although my other dogs were labs and they were a bit large for the back of the couch

tammy I bet he could too

miawa he's one of those guys that can make his job look easy :)
