Asja looking out for her little sister

Okay...let me start this off by saying that my dutchie loves to dig up my yard. She dug up a pretty big hole under the fence...and it was deep, but not quite deep enough for any of the dogs to get through. I have been noticing it getting deeper, though, and I've been mentioning to Greg that he needs to fill it in because I was getting worried that Nisha would be able to get out....

I ran some errands today, and when I got back, I let Asja and Nisha out back. I started to do some stuff around the house...about a half hour later, I walked past the back door, and Asja was standing there lifting her paw and touching the back door. I though maybe she hurt herself, so I went out back...I checked her paw and arm, and no "ouchies." So, I thought maybe she was ready to go back in her kennel. I started to walk towards my garage, and she didn't follow. I called her to me...she still didn't come...this is a dog with EXCELLENT obedience...so I gave her a formal command...she still didn't come...instead, she ran over to the fence (where the hole was) and barked.

Asja doesn't bark for no reason....in fact, I've really only heard her bark during bite work.

At that moment, I realized Nisha wasn't in the yard. I ran over, and lo and behold, Nisha had gotten through the hole!!! There she was on the other side. Well, I got her back...and I couldn't yell at her...she stayed right there (if it weren't for Asja being in my yard still she probably would've taken off)....

I have to thank God for Asja today!!! If it weren't for her, who knows what would've happened to Nisha....

Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out. I usually shut the bitch up with a martini.

What good dogs!!

Wally would be like "Oh yeah, Mike left a loooong time ago. I didn't tell you? Sorry 'bout that. Must've slipped my mind.

Trust me, if Sacha was out there with her she would act exactly like Wally....she'd be happy to finally be rid of her...but Asja and Nisha are buddies...they love each other (and Asja isn't all that social with other dogs)...

Between Jue, Asja, Dru, and Nisha, i get great TV and radio reception...in fact, I'm pretty sure I even pick up messages from Mars...

That's a great story!!!And you're lucky...!
I think if my female would go out,Nico will come to me,just because he's bigger then her,and the hole would be to small for him..LMAO
And if Nico would go out Maya will be behind him and say to me :See you, sucka!!!!!!!! lol
