According to his owner, “Six-year-old Jack just loves lying, or sitting on our front deck. There is just so much to see with people and traffic passing by all day, what self-respecting Scottish Terrier would want to spend time in the back garden??”
Interesting. Before we moved last fall, we lived on the upper storey of a duplex and Bridget spent a lot of time on the front balcony, observing the street and barking at any dog who dared to trespass on our front lawn. When we moved into a house with a back yard, she didn’t know what to do with herself and seemed to really miss the balcony.
That’s changed, however, since she discovered that several raccoons regularly enter the yard when darkness falls. Now, she will sit in the garden for hours, patiently waiting the arrival of the racoons atop the shed or walking along the fence.

I’ve tried to convince Bridget to sit on the front window sill to watch the street but no go. I think she’d need a stair device in order to feel comfortable about getting up there on her own. She doesn’t seem to want to hop over from the back of the couch and she doesn’t like it when I place her there.
I still think she’d like it once she got used to it, however, as, the raccoons have also been spotted in the tree out front. And our window sill is a lot bigger than this one, which Angus seems to use as a squirrel lookout.
