Most people have dogs to protect their homes. And we do have our share of the furry beasts, but nothing beats our guard turkey. He is a beautiful bird, and probably would have tasted great a couple years ago, but he was too nice to eat back then. Now, he's mean and crabby. And probably tough as a boot sole. No one gets past our turkey though. Even the UPS guy knows to keep an eye on him or get spurred. He'll stand for hours looking into our windows, holding still as can be, thinking no one sees him. Drives the Corgi nuts.
Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without Turkey (real original name, LOL). If the President can pardon his turkey, I guess we can do the same for ours : )
Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
