I got tired as did my uphill neighbor of he coming into her yard and making sure he walked close to Charlie fence. There is more marking by Charlie along tht fence which is at the top of the cedar tree area.
I was amazed the day they had the stare down. Each barked then they both walked away. But if Charlie sees his AE in the road or in his driveway. Charlie goes nuts barking.
The BIG as in HUGE dogs behind us bark, Charlie tips his head, comes to a stop,He nevers barks at them when they bark, he truly ignores them completely. One of those dogs is in the yard year round. The other is a house dog but let out in a separate yard for a few hrs once in a while.
As for the uphill Little dogs short hairs the female is Charlie danger alarm. If she barks he runs to see what she is barking at. That means he doesn't have to sound the alarm.
As for the pug downhill. Charlie doesn't bark at him but he does shake his head with ball in mouth and do a couple of deer prances. He also does that to their cat.
As for the deer, he prances, does deer leaps and the head shake. Then stands and stares at them. A number seem to think he is just an oddity and after glancing at him they go back to eating.
Some of the Sparrow ignore him as well.
This place is very educational to me. LOVE IT 8-)
