I like to keep my front door open & let Molly look outside. I was busy & forgot to close it when it got dark. I was downstairs in the family room when I heard her give a few low growls out & then started barking that "Someone is in the driveway" bark. I go upstairs, turn the lights on & see nothing. Close the door & think nothing more of it.
So now it's 2 in the morning & I hear her barking again down in the living room. I know every hair on my neck was standing on end. She woke me up with the barking.....not alot, just very unusual. Very deep. Okay...I get up, turn all the lights on & turn all the outside lights on...see nothing. >
I think she was up looking out the front picture window for SU.
Today the door is open & she starts it again. geez..this is getting on my nerves. I say, "What do you see? & she is looking at me like...like I'm goofy. She is sitting at the window just growling. Okay..I have to investigate this since I would like to sleep tonight.
We go out front & she stops dead in her tracks on the porch & the hair on her back goes up. I start laughing...now I realize what is bothering her. I put out my scarecrow yesterday & she must not have noticed it till evening.
Well if any scarecrows come around....she'll protect me. ;D
Here she is checking out the scarecrow.
"I'm not going to look at that thing...maybe it will go away"
"Okay..I think it's okay"
And I just realized when I downloaded the pictures that there is a reflection of me in the door. See...proof I was in my pj's all day. Lab jammies to boot. :
Oh Molly!! Good protecting your Mom!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Good girl Molly, you protect mommy there.
Good girl, Molly! You protect your mom from that spooky intruder that stayed all night!

Looks like Molly already played a "Trick" on you, i suspect she's had one or two "treats" as well-
I get scared when the boys bark unexpectedly at night, sometimes if a cat passes through the back yard and the sensor light comes on they bark- :-\
