Stuffed Animals Are Ready to Do Battle

There must be a lot of wildlife critters roaming outside our 6-foot wooden fence that surrounds Molly's backyard. Molly's stuffed animals are kept in an open container on the patio. I walked into the backyard yesterday, and I was surprised to see that Molly has been very busy placing all those stuffed animals in strategic spots in the backyard. I believe Molly must have put a lot of thought into stuffed-animal placement. Molly has always told me that positioning is key when stuffed babies are ordered to defend the backyard from wildlife. There are a few small spaces where wooden fence does not quite meet the ground. Those little spaces are just right for a skinny, or quite flexible, wildlife critter to make its way into Molly's backyard. I very glad that Molly's stuffed animals, referred to as "babies" by Molly, are out there to help defend Molly's property from wildlife. My husband said it looks like a stuffed-baby graveyard out there. I must check to see if all Molly's "babies" are alive and kicking.

Your backyard is big, Deborah. The stuffed babies are used to scare off the wildlife critter?

Well, Molly thinks the stuffed babies will scare off the wildlife critters, but the stuffed babies do not do a very good job of it.

@Corbin5 Oh, so those stuffed babies just lay in there for most of the time then?

Glad Harley likes to do that too. I did pick them all up and placed them in the container, but she will spread them out again.

@thislittlepennyearns No, Molly insists that all stuffed babies remain outdoors. I will bring one in just for fun, and she will take it right back outside. I have placed one on her doggy bed indoors, and she is not happy about that. Out is goes.

Molly certainly has a method about putting her babies around the yard. I have the same thing in my living room and it looks like a stuffed animal graveyard too.

The funny thing about Molly is that she will not allow any stuffed baby to be indoors. All have to remain outside. Sometimes I will bring one in, and she takes it and out it goes.

@Corbin5 that's pretty funny. Does she dig holes and bury things?

@Marilynda1225 No, she has never dug a hole or buried something. Our old dog Bo dug holes just for the joy of digging a hole; no burying. I was always refilling holes due to Bo.

Molly considers her stuffed babies her army. I believe she thinks they will help her keep wildlife out of the yard.

That is a very ample backyard for Molly to play around. She really profits from the space and the quantity of stuffed toys at her disposition

Oh yes, Molly is fortunate to have a backyard that is all hers. She has a doggy door, so she can go in and out of the house to and from the backyard 24/7.

I called my husband to the backyard to look at what she had done. I put them all back into the container on the patio, but she is placing them here and there once again.

I saw a TV program about how certain dogs do this. This one dog had hundreds of stuff toys. The owner would say bring me the giraffe, dog goes and gets the giraffe. Bring me the lion. Dog brings a lion. Bring me the squirrel , not the rabbit, the squirrel. Dog brings the squirrel. Pretty damn smart if you ask me.

Molly certainly loves to keep her backyard free of other critters! I hope it works well for her, But you must talk to her about giving her babies some leave time, so they don't have to be on guard every day! do they ever complain to you about that?

Well, when I went out there, many of them were sound asleep. She works them too hard!! Yes, some have asked me to hide them in a closet, but Molly will find out. She is good at that.

Yes, she really does work hard at positioning. There are others that are not in the photo. She has about 3 in the right back corner of the fence. That must be an entry area that sees a lot of action.
