Backyard bouncer

I wish I had a picture of this...

So yesterday I let the dog stay in the back yard all afternoon. She usually scratches at the sliding door if she needs to go out - to bark at kids, dogs, coyote... birds... or to do her thrice daily fertilizer application - but yesterday she'd decided to literally stand guard on the pond.

I went outside for a smoke and to finish cleaning out the last of the algae bloom in the pond and there's my girl, laying all stretched out on a flagstone, head resting on her front paws and just staring at the fish.

I called for her to come in and eat but she wasn't having any of that. She cocked her head a bit at me as if to say "What? And leave the babies to the birds? Are you STUPID???"

Back to her position on the rock she went, tail swatting an occasional bug and eyes literally locked on her charge. Ok, lunch on the veranda it is... She had a plate of chicken hearts and gizzards as reward for such a stellar job.

We had a pair of starlings take up residence in the patio cover. I say had because it appears that Miss Backyard Bouncer has evicted them. She gets her back hair all in a twist any time so much as a butterfly LOOKS like it might cross the "line of death".

OH! Here's some good news... The last couple of days, the remaining fish have been cowering in a little space between the pond side and a planter basket. I'd thought there were only four left after the Heron massacre... I find now that there are seven! Apparently, the smallest koi were in hiding UNDER the planter!

So those, with the two dozen the man-child and I picked out yesterday should bring the pond back to a semblance of normalcy. Those guys are all in quarantine while they spawn. My son will pick them up on Monday.

And with the owl decoy, motion activated sprinkler head, pop-up gazebo, strategically strung fishing line and daddy's self appointed backyard bouncer, we should be able to keep these guys safe and sound...

Already seen it young lady!

I am, after all, a visually stimulated male. If there's frontal nudity, I'll find it I guarantee!
