SOLC 24 of 31: Guard Dog

He lays by the front door,

flopped on the welcome mat,

nose on the door frame peering back into the house.

He perks up his ears when a car nears,

but doesn’t move.

If a visitor arrives, his head lifts

and he decides if it’s worth a greet.

He rises slowly,

prowls like he’s about to pounce

and then jumps up to meet,

appeased by any petting, loving, scratching, rubbing.

He’s my attention-seeking

Golden retriever, but

a guard-dog, he is not.

    What a humorous description of your guard dog! I have one that guards the same way.
