Meet my nemesis

I have a new enemy and he lives next door.

I first spotted him when dad went round to the neighbours to discuss onions. He and Tim, our neighbour, wandered down the garden to his vegetable patch, and that's when I saw him.

He was lurking under a tree, looking suspicious. I knew instantly that he was up to no good. So I rushed over and started barking at him for all I was worth. But it had no effect at all. He just sat there, all calm and serene, with that stony stare on his face.

So I barked and barked some more, but he remains calm, impassive and serene. I don't like it. What do you think? He's got a nasty look about him, hasn't he?



It's like he's some kind of anti-dale.

The next day Tim opened the gate and I shot through and rushed over to check if he was still there. And he was sitting in the same place, the same calm, impassive expression. So I barked and barked - but nothing.

I can sense he's there through the fence. I bark at him from our garden now and then just to let him know I'm keeping an eye on him.

What do you think I should do?

  1. I think you've got all bases covered, Mojo. Just carry on barking and hopefully it'll go away! J x

  2. Hey, Mojo!

    I always think it's a good idea to introduce yourself to new folks. Maybe he's not your nemesis after all... maybe he's a potential partner in crime, disguised as an enemy.

    I think this needs closer inspection and maybe a little reconnaissance mission. (I'm sure your dad can help with this, since it's spywork 101.)

    By the way, your mama is ALMOST there!! WooOOOOoHoooOoooOOOOOO!

    Goober love & smooches to you, your spy dad, and your mama (when you see her),

  3. He looks like he's meditating like Mango does! Are you sure he's mean, Mojo? He looks like he's minding his own business to us and doesn't seem like a threat to you and your family! We'd keep an eye on him for sure though!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  6. Oh Mojo, I can see the devil is concrete, one of my favorite chewie items. Run at him, knock him hard, in fact tackle him good. Hopefully the head will fly off and start chewing the parts.
    But don't get caught that's when things go bad, trust me.

  12. Yes, that new fellow does look suspicious, better keep a close eye on him. Those quiet ones are always troublemakers. :)

  21. We have a similar enemy in our garden, one that is familiar to all Aussies - the Barbie.

    Our Airedale, Roxy, won't go near it and she sort of sneaks into the garden whilst checking that it hasn't moved. Occasionally she'll bark at it. It never replies.

    Mr Weber would turn in his grave.

    Great blog.

  25. Mojo, I think he wants to be your budday. Princess barks at statues until dad makes her go up close. She puts her tongue on it and then she's ok. Try it, you might lick it.

    And update us, k?

  37. You could always pee on him. Then again, you wouldn't be the first; there's a rather famous Monkey who beat you to it...
