On the whole, I am a very private person.  I like to sit on my back doorstep in the mornings and contemplate the world and my front paws. I love my garden.  It is mine, although I kindly share it with the cats. It is a beautiful morning.  Peace and momentary  solitude before my day begins. Bliss.  Unfortunately my neighbour has a tendency to ruin it all by arriving unannounced and barking in my ear.  

 

Too in your face Gatsby!
 
This is Gatsby. About 10 foot tall on his hind legs and the noisiest and nosiest neighbour on the planet, even though he lives across the fields.  Fortunately, he is terrified of me.  So a couple of well chosen barks from me sends him scuttling back across the field.  Shorkie Power!

Ghrrrr!
