Would You Like To Be My Neighbor?

We have a new furry member of the family here in our little court.  So I thought I would introduce you to her as well as a little lady who has been here a while.

This is sweet little Ginger.  She lives across the street and has been here about two years or so.  She's a rescue dog (good going mommy and daddy) and is totally spoiled.  She thinks that the court is hers and can't understand why there are other dogs in the neighborhood.  We have such a great court and most nice evenings after work everyone stands outside and chats.  I always know when they are out because Maggie and Mollie start barking because Ginger is out.  Ginger is always styling with her clothes.  She's a love!!!

Meet Duffy, the newest member of the neighborhood.  She lives next door and has been here about a week.  She is a year old auburn colored King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.  The neighbors were going to get a puppy and had one all picked out.  However, it didn't thrive and it passed away which was sad.  They were going to wait for another little when they got the call that Duffy was available.  Housebroken, crate trained, what could be better.  She's a petit little sweety.

The only problem we have now is that our two Scotties and the pugs go crazy when she is out in her yard.  It's just like having children.  The neighbors have the well mannered children while we have the obnoxious and noisy ones.  I'm hoping to introduce them to Duffy at some point so they'll stop barking (screaming is the better term) but since she is new and still a little shy I'll wait.  In the meantime, the neighbors have assured me each time I apologize for my noisy hounds that it's alright.

I tell you, we have a great neighborhood!!!

Your neighborhood sounds lovely, but you'll have a hard time getting me away from my southern Ohio slice of heaven. The doggie population is a side benefit to your pleasant neighbors, I'm sure.

It sounds like you have a wonderful neighborhood Miss Jean -- the kind everyone wants to belong to ('scuse my poor English). I don't really know any of my neighbors -- it's so sad -- we're all always working. Maybe someday. Or maybe if I had a dog -- I do notice some of them walk their dogs together. Your new little neighbor dogs are adorable!

Your post made me laugh. We have several dogs on our hill and they all get used to each other and the different barks, until a new doggie arrives and then they all seem to go mad. I have a hooligan too!!!!! Who seems to want to bark the most and be heard the longest!!!!

I always think of the Twilight Bark from the Disney cartoon 101 Dalmatians when they all start barking.

OMG, sounds like my pugs! When I take them for a walk, Elvis rides in the carriage and he barks at any human who ignores him as well as at any other dog he sees that he doesn't like. It's especially embarassing/annoying when it's early in the morning!
