Basil is a very curious, busybody dog. He loves looking out windows.
I think he fancies himself as an important alpha male guard dog who must protect his pack at all costs. So much as a squirrel hops into the next-door neighbour’s garden and Basil simple must bark out a 200-decibel warning.
Of course, you can’t see or hear everything he sees and hears, so it looks like he’s barking at nothing, which is really stupid when he deafens you in the process.
There he is in the photo, ever vigilant, looking out the car windscreen to make sure no danger lurks beyond.
Silly, sweet Basil!
My drumming ear plugs would come in really handy now, except I’ve left them in Singapore.

Please tell him I said “Woof woof, bark woof, bark bark woof, woof woof”. He’ll know what that means :P
Basil replies, “Cookie?”
I have cookies, Basil, but first woof, woof, bark, woof bark, bark woof, woof, woof, Grrrrrr?
Basil says, “Cookie or nothing! Woof!”
Basil is clearly a “boy” dog. There is no question about that :P
@Sheylara: Man, you mentioning the drumming earplugs sure brings back some good memories of your school gig, hehe:)
@Pepper: Yes, he definitely is! And he’s quite the ladies’ man, too. He generally prefers to socialise with females. That includes humans and dogs!
@RN1209: Heh, yeah. Pity I had to give that up!
lol. I see that! That’s why he is Basil Bond Ladies Dog :P
