Coraline likes to guard the house by sitting on the back of the armchair, looking out the front windows. She keeps tabs on our mail delivery as well as anyone who happens to be walking by. She usually doesn’t bark, but occasionally something will set her off and she’ll give whoever what-for. She would be pretty unreliable if we were really counting on her, though.
Recently she was ready to stand guard but couldn’t quite bring herself to leave her frankentoy. When she’s got a toy sticking out of her mouth like this, I can’t help but imagine she sounds like Humphrey Bogart.
