brandy 'thedog'

I've been keeping track on how Brandy 'thedog' has progress/change since we got her by taking snap shots of her every week (well mostly every week).
I was looking through her pictures and notice how time has pass so quickly. I remember the day we saw her and the day she came into our life. Mischievous innocent looking little puppy…

We had the intention to bring her to dog training classes, as usual we delayed it and it's been 2 years now. She does know the basic commands.

I didn't realize her 'maturity' until we bought her some new toys recently.
We were expecting her to destroy the toy within 24hrs. But to our surprise, her toy is still in full intact.
She still can't get enough of food even after feeding her, she would still follow us around hoping that we will give her more food.

Recently, the vet said she's fat and looks like a piglet….. hahaha...

As she gets older, she destroy less things now...

For example....
footwear :
We have lost numbers of slippers and shoes when she was younger. As time goes by, with some scolding and training she doesn't bite off our footwear anymore.
We can safely leave our footwear at the porch area and it will still be intact the next morning.

Our plants are safer now cos she used to bite off the leaves of any plants at the porch. In the end, we had to place 'playpans', protecting the plants at the corner of the porch. Recently, I've tried leaving the 'ungated' plant area open to see if she would bite the leaves off. Nothing happened.. she sniffed around and left the plants alone….  *happy me…*

Just when I thought I could take the 'playpans' away, I discovered something.

Brandy 'thedog', has a very interesting hobby.
She likes to bark at lizards, hunt them, play with them, and then kill them. Cockroaches wasn't spare as well. hahahaha....

One afternoon, (the 'ungated' plant area was open) she spotted a lizard on the wall behind the pot plants, then she bark and scratch her way to get the lizard and the plants fell to the ground. From then onwards, it wasn't the bitting of plants anymore, it was her hobby of catching 2,4 or 6 legged creatures. With the 'playpans' around, she would just bark at the lizards, but without the 'playpans', she would just go full charge attacking the poor little lizard.

The thing that I notice now is that she barks more often then last time. Anyone who comes by or anyone who walk pass our house or even kids playing outside our house, she would bark and bark and bark…. Most of these people are 'regular' by passer. She practically sees them everyday, but yet she still barks at them. My 'mr' said that most likely the kids likes to tease her. But then my neighbor who goes in and out of the house, and sees her everyday would also gets her barking. The funny thing is that, she only barks when she knows that we are watching her or when we are watching tv at the living room. She would bark, then turn around to look at us to make sure that we are looking and continue with her barking.

why…why does she do that?…
