Front Porch Intruder Alert

Hearing my dog wildly barking I peeked out the window, wondering who or what I might see.

Intruder Alert: Squirrel Huddled In A Corner
A cat went running across the porch, down the front steps, and on down the street. Yes, that cat went scat when he heard my dog Valentino. My dog has little tolerance for the many stray cats in the neighborhood.

I leashed my boy up, opened the front door, and what did I see? In the corner crouched a small squirrel, apparently hiding behind the broom on the porch. Thankfully, my dog has little interest in squirrels, this one included. Actually, he was too busy trying to find that cat!

Nonetheless, I took the dog for a walk and upon our return the squirrel was gone. No more squirrel, no more cat, dog has taken care of business... Now I can return to my computer work and play for the day!

When it comes to "his front porch" my dog Valentino is the best intruder alert system around. However, it does not hurt to have a security camera system in place too, for when my dog and I are out and about.

Volunteer Plants Produce Pumpkins

Yes! Valentino found another pumpkin in a patch!

My dog Valentino has a nose for the scent of pumpkin fruit on a vine. As we wander around the neighborhood on our dog walks he is quick to show me his nose knows where the good stuff grows.

Dog Valentino Found A Volunteer Pumpkin Patch

Along an alleyway the dog dragged me to a patch of grass with a motley looking vine I recognized as what I thought was a dying pumpkin patch. Sure enough, there was a wee pumpkin growing in its midst.

The owner of the house where Valentino discovered the pumpkin patch was in her yard. I commented to her how much my dog enjoys her pumpkins. She was rather tickled by his vegetarian-like hunting ability.

The woman told me these are volunteer pumpkins. She had not planted the seeds! But she is enjoying these pumpkins too.

The woman also asked me this question: "Did you know that when a vine produces a pumpkin all of the plant nutrients go straight to the fruit growing on the vine and oftentimes its flowers and leaves pretty much die away?"

I had no idea. I learned my something new on this day!


Come walk the dog with me and see a few more pumpkins we found along our way!
