(Toledo, OH) Pictured on your left is Missy, our 6-year-old rat terrier
mix. At the time of this image Missy was keeping close watch on a pair of squirrels across the yard, critters she seems to believe are ripe for stalking and tormenting.
Dogs like Missy have little use for cell phones
in their work as canine yard sheriffs. Her pointed tail and perked up ears provide better communication to those around her that all is not well in the department of rogue rodents.
Alas, the squirrel menace passed, and Missy returned to her porch perch, but rest assured that no rodent dare let down its guard on her watch.
