Our dog Jenny on duty keeping the squirrels out of the bird feeders
Jenny, a blue healer/jack russel mix (we think) who came to us just over a year ago when she showed tendencies of jealousy and behavior that was not kid-friendly upon the arrival of our grand-daughter. She belonged to my son and daughter-in-law and, since she is a sweet-tempered dog as long as she has no competition, she moved to our house. Except for her daily announcement of the mailman, she has been a delightful addition to our family. The family cat and the yard squirrels are not so pleased but they tolerate her.
Our yard is greening up and seeds have been planted in the several blank spots--which since this photo was taken, are mostly filled in. We love our deck and yard. During the summer we spend more time outside the house than inside.
