It is Sunday once again and it is time to cleanse the soul. The 3 of us are going to church so we will leave the house with only the dogs guarding it. There will be 3 among the 11 who will stay outside at the veranda while the rest will be inside. They sleep anyway when nobody is at home, then they bark vigorously once we come back home. We also remind our neighbors that nobody is manning the house except for the dogs. Can you trust your dogs to guard your house when you leave them home alone?

yes we have. though they are not the expected guard dogs like German shepherd, they bark when they smell a different scent, or when they see an unknown person at the gate. i am the one preparing their food and they receive equal shares.
@JustBhem oh, so your Hachiko was a female dog. she was a faithful pet to you. in other countries, some pet owners do have their dogs "put to sleep" or euthanize, but we don't do that here. we let the dogs live until their last breathe, that is why my lot (at the back of our ancestral home) is considered the pet cemetery. many dogs are buried there, with tears from my son's and my eyes.
