Disturbing the Peace part 2,3,4 - whatever

The first "Disturbing the Peace" post documented Jasper's displeasure with an armadillo that was hopping around under the motor home in Florida.  Since then, there have been several installments.  The latest incident took place yesterday.

  Ahhh.....  Roger here....  Sitting behind the motor home watching the Indiana corn grow.  Sooooo peaceful.... Sooooo quiet.....  Soooo tranquil........

Hey, Bandido..... shut up!  

"Bark, bark, bark, howl, howl, woof, woof, grrrrr."

Is there a threat in the corn field?  There is nothing there!  Oh.  OK.  I see what you are trying to protect us from.  "It's OK Bandido.  It's just a hot-air balloon.  It won't hurt us.  OMG.  It's bigger!

It's OK.  Mommy will pet you.  It's OK.  Don't be afraid.  "Woof (subdued), woof.

WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!  "Now two of them are attacking us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bandido actually hid under my lawn chair until the hot-air balloons were gone.  "Such an aggressive, protective, brave, brave, baby!"

Other news... I met a few of my former teachers after school Thursday.  What fun!  Andy, Eric, Jeff, and Jenny... it was great to see you.

The pet picture of the day shows Bandido, staring at the hot-air balloons, while hiding under my lawn chair.  What a good, but "chicken" guard dog!

Funny! I have heard about watching grass grow, but this is the first I know of watching corn grow:)

You and the pups are too much!! Glad you survived the attact of the Hot Air Balloons;o))

Actually loved the photo of the balloons coming out of the corn field!!

Bandido and our 3 lb. Buddy would get along well together. Buddy will stand straight and tall and bark at big dogs, then if they come toward him, he runs and stands behind Roger.

You look nice and comfy starring out into the cornfield - life is darn good.

Thanks for the info on the shade shelter. I need to decide whether the wind would be a problem here in Florida since we always have a breeze.

Margie... I don't think that the breeze would be a problem as long as it is staked to the ground. We left ours up (staked) for several days in one campground. The wind did not bother it. If it was not staked, it would definitely blow over. Hope this helps.
