The view out our window that our dog helped us create.

This is the view out the front window of our house. It’s a nice view, you can see our almond tree that has its new growth after a cold winter, you can see the law needs mowing, the gum trees in the distance and you can see the blue chair and table that belonged to my grandparents and sat out the front of their house for many years.

What’s missing? That would be the curtains. I’m certain they were there before I went to work today but apparently an unnamed Golden Retriever decided that it’s time someone pulled them violently from the window and ripped them to shreds.

It goes without saying Storm knows nothing about this injustice and he denies everything.

He always says that.

Leaving your dog home alone can actually increase your property value, just ask Storm.

Do you like the way the hole in the curtain is the exact size for a dog to look out of?

“This is your fault, not mine. When you decided to get a Golden Retriever you knew what you were getting yourself into. We are a social breed of dog and enjoy the company of others. You left me at home for a couple of hours, you left your bedroom door open and you know that I like sitting there as I look out the window. When you think about it logically I actually made your lace curtain better than they were beforehand. In the past I had difficulty looking through the curtain but since I put this huge hole in it I can see perfectly so I can warn you of any intruders.  I also saw the mailman, five cars driving past and one cat.  Don’t worry, they are now gone as they were scared by my barking.

Maybe the lighting is bad for this photo, but sometimes a dog needs to show the world what a wonderful job he's done at home renovations.

I sense a negative attitude from you at my excellent renovation attempt. I find this attitude strange and confusing so as a peace offering I’ve decided not to renovate the other curtains in the house. However I reserve the right to complete the project next time you leave me home alone.

If your demeanour does not improve over this issue than I refuse to continue my long term project of digging holes in your backyard and pulling out plants in your garden. I know you enjoy me doing these tasks as I hear you screaming in joy when you see my beautiful work.  I will also refuse to bark at the cats for no obvious reason until you formally apologise.

It's hard to understand why humans don't appreciate the good work us dogs can do around the house.

Please note, I now considering this discussion closed so please do not mention it again.  Can I have a pat?”
