Moe Speaks: My Spot

IMG_4406

This is my spot on the stairs.  It's one of my favorite places to lay--in addition to my basket--because from here I can survey my entire domain.  Thus situated, I can....

  • look through the kitchen window to see if anyone is arriving....
  • keep track of my humans, even if one is upstairs and the other is down....   
  • monitor activity in the kitchen, and be there in a jiffy if my floor cleaning services are needed....
  • almost instantly assail anyone walking through the back door, whether with springs and kisses (for people I love, such as my Uncle Bruce) or with scary barks (for people who are Suspicious)....
  • observe and react quickly if a human moves my leash as if to take me on a walk....
....and I can do all of this while appearing to be asleep!  

Do any of you other dogs have a tactically advantageous spot where you like to hang out?
