Amy Schmitt, formerly of Festus, says her dog, Harry, normally is easygoing, but he gets whipped up when he spots animals in his family’s yard in south St. Louis County.
“If he sees the squirrels or birds, he won’t stop barking,” Schmitt said. “He’s saying, ‘Get out of my yard!’”
Harry, a schnauzer, is about 12.
He spends a lot of time watching for other critters.
“Every time I open the blinds, he’s looking out,” Schmitt said. “There are two squirrels in particular out there he’ll bark at. I’m afraid he’ll pull down the blinds.”
Harry enjoys car rides, too.
“Sometimes, he won’t even get out of the car,” Schmitt said.
