YOU CAN GET MY SIX BIN SALUTE, PLUS A REALLY GOOD BARK!

My New Years resolution is to sit proudly in my yard and give a military style paw salute to my General's Mum, Dad and Joolsy every time they bring rubbish to the bin or come out to peg some washing on the line. I would make it not to bark at everything and everyone who passes my house (Elsie and I feel we own our whole road) but fear this would be broken by 9.00am on New Years Day when folk are passing with their dogs for their morning stroll. Happy New Year.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Fingers crossed Marble will be able to give a pawfect six bin salute. Now getting more naps does seem like a perfect resolution to make. Happy New Year to you.

  5. Happy New Year! We thought about the barking resolution, but knew it wouldn't last Besides, how else are we going to keep our Mom & Dad from being murdered by the mailman, UPS guy, school kids walking home, joggers....you understand the problem, right?

    1. Extremely protective body guard dogs, better than Kevin Costner. Oh I love your style ha ha! Marble and Elsie would agree apart from on the Mail Person. Our lovely Post Lady coos through the letter box all manner of complimentary words and even when she hasn't got mail for us, waves as Marble and Elsie jump at the window ledge. She's such a gem. Happy New Year to you all.

  6. Oh my, I simply choose not to make a resolution so I do not break it. Makes life more simple. Hope your resolution sticks until at least 10:00.

    1. Yes I think you definitely have the right idea. Marble should be able to stick with his six bin salute however not barking at everything might be a paw step too far for him and Elsie. Happy New Year.

  9. Funny resolution, love the pose and picture! We wouldn't be able to guarantee "no barking" either; we're really good watchdogs too. :) Happy New Year!

  11. We know the barking resolution won't work for us but we are trying to teach Bella how to bark on command so we can teach her how NOT to bark on command. LOL Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you I definitely agree. Marble's been practising with Dad this morning and he should have it down to a fine art for tomorrows rubbish disposal ha ha! Happy New Year.

  13. Sounds like great goals. We don't have any resolutions. We already guard the house, keep the family in line and herd the animals, so nothing is left.

  14. It's a good thought, but barking at everyone who passes is a dog's job, isn't it? At least my crew thinks so! :)

    1. I suppose it is in a dogs DNA but wish they had a volume control button like on the TV sometimes. Happy New Year.
