Olly takes his job of home guard seriously - very seriously. And that includes the alley behind our home. If someone just walks down the alley, no problem. But if someone is messing around in the alley, Olly doesn't like it one bit.
Yes, someone is hanging around the alley and Olly is going to let him know that is NOT okay. Notice his hackles are up as he gets ready to scale the 6-foot block wall.
Yes, this is truly happening ... Olly is doing his vertical leap.
Almost there ....
Notice the focus ... Olly found the intruder and is giving him instructions to leave - now.
Keep in mind ... Olly is 9 1/2 years old. He has absolutely no problem scaling that wall and he's been doing it for years. He does NOT know that he could pull himself right on over and I want to make sure he never learns that. Fortunately, when his "guard bark" starts, I know something is going on and can run outside and call him down. One of these days, I hope to see the face of whoever might be in the alley. :)
