Hi pals, Puff Darby here...
Yesterday, I was enjoying my afternoon nap when I was awaken by the sounds of a vehicle coming up our driveway. I take guarding the homestead seriously so I immediately jump up and started barking. Momma knew there was someone outside by my actions (remember, my momma can't hear much) and she went to the front door to see what I was alerting her to.
It turned out to be the UPS man delivering a package to daddy, who was outside with the UPS man. Everything was just fine until momma opened the front door wider so she could ask the UPS man if he would like a bottle of water as we were having a very warm day. He said "yes" and momma turned around to go back inside the house and that's when I made my move.
I ran outside and started barking, barking and BARKING at the UPS man. I also threw in a few jumps and nips just to let him know that I meant business. Momma and daddy began yelling at me and instructing me to GO BACK INTO THE HOUSE, which of course I ignored. Daddy finally was able to get me away from the UPS man's legs, scolded me right there in front of the UPS man and made me go back inside the house.
All I was doing was protecting our home from intruders - SHEESH!
