Jingles defends the homestead

Savannah and I pulled up in front of the house early in the afternoon.  Jake and Maggie were in the back seat of Stinky, still wet from swimming in the lake at Cheraw State Park.  A UPS truck was parked there, directly in front of the porch.  The UPS guy was standing a couple of steps away from the truck, a package in his hand.  He was tossing something toward Jingles, who was in the middle of the yard, her hackles up, barking for all she was worth.

Savannah hopped out and picked Jingles up to prevent any escalation of the situation.   The UPS guy laughed and said “I was throwing her some dog biscuits, but she didn’t notice.”    He gave Savannah the package, returned to his truck, and drove away.   About this time, Lauren and Donna came out to see what all the commotion was about.  We all had a good laugh at old Jingle Belles,  still defending her turf, at 14 1/2 years of age.

Then Jake and Maggie quickly disposed of those dog biscuits that Jingles had ignored.
