Dogs getting high
That’s what the black dogs in our house prefer.
Scooby spends whole days parked on the back of our couch — a pretty high place for a dude who’s, like, six inches tall. But from that vantage point, the elderpin has a view of our entire main floor. He’s just a few feet from the front door, with an unobstructed view of the kitchen and back door and a good sightline into the bedroom.
Foster pup Charlie Machete never loved being kenneled, and so shortly after he began staying with us last summer, the laundry room became his room.
True to his inner panther, he opted against snoozing on the floor and instead took to leaping four feet onto a counter that offered access to one corner of a window with a glimpse into our side yard. If a basket of clean or dirty clothes happened to be on the counter, he’d just squish himself into it, shovelhead hanging over the front.
He still does this, but due to his insistence on hopping off of the counter the moment I open the laundry room door, I have no photographic proof.
However, I have caught him in another high place.
The design of our new deck includes a bench that attaches to our fence. One step up, and a panther dog has a full street view.
Of course, we never leave him out there unattended, but he sure likes to play sentry anytime he gets the chance.
