Yard Patrol

I am so Thankful for our BIG Sliding glass doors so I can see outside and stay cool.

I've been working long hours (and missing out on my beauty sleep) as our yard patrol officer.   It is so hot outside dat I have to keep watch from inside da house.

Lately,  dar's a blue heron that has the nerve to walk by (on da other side of my fence)  and then goes fishing in the canal.  When I see him out back, I go crazy and Mom lets me shout at him and chase him to the other side of the canal.  Den I have to watch him to make sure he doesn't come back.   I can usually force him to fly away (my shouting must scare away da fish that he is looking for).

Not only do I have to parol our yard for rabbits, squirrels, and herrons, but now dey say there is a gator around.

Yep, we've had alligator sightings in our neighborhood canals but I'm not too worried about da gator (my yard is fenced).    Maybe if I actually saw one, I might be a bit more concerned.  Butt den again.... I'm a Scottie so I think I can scare him off too.

Hummm.... don't you think I deserve a raise?     Is there such a thing as gator hazard pay?


Pees.   I've been away from blogville for some time now and don't know what events are happening in blogville.   Now dat I'm back, is there a place I can go to see what events/hops are coming up so I can join in?  I do like a good pawty.


  1. You sure are working hard Ranger and I am glad you are keeping cool. Hey, there are always lots of species friendly blog events listed at The Cat Blogosphere, you can check it daily at Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. I am thankful for you ~ sweet little scottie dog ^_^

    Happy Day to you,

  3. You want to get paid for scaring a heron? Three demerits.

  4. Nice to meet you cutie pie! I've only been blogging a year, so I don't think we've ever met. As far as hazard pay, I think extra treats are definitely required.

  5. We guard our house against all kinds of things seen and unseen (but usually heard) and think a raise is definitely in order. Be careful that gator doesn't sneak under your fence.

  6. You definitely need hazardous work pay!!! You've got enough of a workload with squirrels and herons and critters without adding a gator to the mix. Remember to get in a few naps, too, so you don't burn out.

  7. Hate to burst your bubble Ranger, we get accounts of people with fences having ALLIGATOR visitors in their yards and pools.Mom keeps a watchful eye on us and we are never outside without her. It has been too hot and rainy for many outdoor activities anyway.

  8. have been very busy Ranger...we sure hope you're being paid well for all your hard work!

  9. Hello Ranger. Nice to see you again. You're doing a good job keeping critters out of your yard.

  10. Ranger, you are very good at keeping your household safe. Looks like you can stay cool inside and look out the big slide glass door. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.
