Delilah & Lucy: A Tale of Two Busy-Body Girls at the Window
This picture, captured by my husband, illustrates just how nosy and curious Delilah and Lucy are. From their vantage point they can just barely catch a glimpse of the sidewalk, but they see just enough to alert us of the dangers of a Chihuahua unlawfully walking on their block in their kingdom. Despite the fact that Lucy is ostensibly a half-pint, her little shrill voice carries full-throttle- no doubt a delight to our neighbors. All the while Delilah bellows with the vigor and conviction of a 200 pound male Mastiff- despite her sweet and affectionate disposition. Their passionate combined efforts amount to a canine concert that displeases us greatly, but they are exceedingly proud of their ability to protect us from the squirrels in trees, birds in the sky, and of course the poor mailman. Post canine concerto they revel in their abilities by swaggering through the house in celebration of their prowess as great protectors, and of course demand treats for their considerable efforts.
