Sami On Guard Duty

DSCN1117

We have a family of rabbits turning our back yard into a rabbit sanctuary. Sami has a hard time with sharing anything, but especially her back yard. That is part of her domain, along with the whole house and the car. When we go outside for a potty break I go out first and do a rabbit patrol to make sure they scatter before Sami decides they need exercise and chases them.

She is pretty patient with them as long as she is just looking down on them from her upstairs bedroom but she goes on meltdown when she thinks they might get too close to her sunning chair.

I picked this old chair up at a yard sale for $8 and replaced the webbing with fabric. I also made a cute cushion from outdoor fabric but Sami refuses to sit on the chair with the cushion, so away it goes. Can you tell she is the queen?

Sometimes the rabbits play under the chair and Sami has what us Southerners call a ‘hissy fit’. I go out and relocate them to another part of the yard and all is well in Sami Land again.

Just to let you know that I am not the only Sami Slave, my friend makes me walk to the street from my cul de sac when she picks me up for a lunch date– so she doesn’t have to see Sami’s sad face in the window.  🙂

When I leave this earthly world I want to come back as a pampered pet.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Aww Peggy – I know Sami doesn’t know it, but he is one lucky puppy. It’s the luck of the draw to get into a loving family – one who buys him a nice sunning chair, etc. I think you should come back as a guardian angel for someone and you can share your love of quilting really quietly with them. ~smile~ I love that picture of Sami watching out the window. I can share Sami’s frustration with those darn rabbits – he could come patrol our yard any time! Roseanne

    1. Thanks Roseanne. The problem with Sami is that she is very brave behind the door but it would scare her to death if she ran upon a rabbit or anything else. Another thing with her is that she rarely barks, only whines when she wants something. 🙂
