Through the safety of a big picture window

Through the safety of our big antique window, the boys sit and watch the world go by.

When it rains, they stay clean and dry. When it’s chilly, they stay toasty warm. When the boogieman (aka the UPS man) comes calling, they are protected by the thin, clear pane. When a neighbor’s adventuresome tabby cat struts by to dig in our garden, they can only stare intently.

They wiggle their tails in greeting at the mailman and the neighbors, and paint runny-nose-messages on the glass to the other dogs walking with their owners. When we hop in the car or head down the street for a run, their little eyes, noses, and ears are peering intently at us, beckoning us to come home soon. When we return, the boys are roused from their peaceful slumber by the sound of the key jingling in the lock, and their curious foreheads pop into view, like groundhogs checking on the weather.

  1. This is so sweet!
    My Lilu always looks at the window when Daddy comes home and goes to work.
    The windows in the car look good … quite a lot of secret messages … painted with the nose!

    Can you not be angry … Windows must be cleaned anyway. * wink *

  2. We’ve only got a thin, narrow window at the front of the house, but love to see both boys with their heads pressed together when they see us come home!


  3. Hi Aleksandra,
    I’ve been reading your blog for quite sometime but I’ve never commented. We have a pit bull type dog and I have a special place in my heart for pits. Since reading your blog you have inspired me to start fostering. And just yesterday we got our first foster! At first we were nervous about bringing a puppy into the house – as our resident pooch is much more into people than other dogs – but it was love first sight between these two. A little bit of puppy madness is doing her some good in her old(er) age! I am so excited that we took the leap and started to foster. I can already tell how rewarding it will be!
    Thank you for inspiring us to do this!
    Alyssa (and Pork Chop, our foster!)

  4. This post paints such a sweet picture! Pearl is obsessed with our front window, I think she sees the chair by the window as her post and from that chair she can see anything coming by and do her job by barking until it goes away 🙂

  5. Those pups are adorable and you are all blessed to have each other. I know how much they bring to your life, and I am positive they appreciate all you have given to theirs.

  6. We have a window, that faces the driveway and part of the street, that is “Elka’s”. She stands up on the loveseat to look out of it, and it’s all smudged up from her nose. I keep meaning to clean it but…well…it’ll just get smudged up again, right?

    The boys look great together, as always.

  7. Your boys are just too cute! Don’t you love those snot messages that they leave for you? I know ours like to leave them all over the backseat windows 🙂 I don’t know how you’re going to say goodbye to Dude though…Chick and him seem like they’re practically inseparable!

  8. The boys look so cute sitting there waiting for you to come back. Our dog will do the same thing. She will sit by the back door looking outside waiting for use. Or she will lay by the driveway waiting for one of us to get home.
