...aka husbands have terrible ideas, even if they were kind of joking (he took it more seriously once he got more detail)!

Our building has window cleaners doing the outside of the balconies and bedroom windows today. The boys were pretty good until the actual window cleaner showed up on the outside of our balcony. Whoo boy. Agis was having none of that!

Agis was ANGRY. The balcony cleaner looked a little nervous (to be fair, only the screen door was shut).

I had to pull Agis away, and even then, he kept going back - I ended up putting him in the second bedroom ("his" room) to calm down.

I think it did have a fear component - after the balcony cleaner was gone, he self-sent to the bathroom for a couple of minutes - though maybe that's just the place he self calms, but since he goes there when there's fireworks or thunderstorms, I think he was nervous.

Regardless of what his display was based on, he does make an effective deterrent against a house robber I suppose haha.

And you know when Xerxes the Attack Beagle minds better than Agis (who generally listens/responds well), Agis was making a point.

I completely agree, he obviously didn't understand what was happening and was just defending his territory/property. Luckily the window cleaner didn't fall off the balcony, (only kidding). wink

Heh! Lucky he was suspended on a rope(s). Still, poor guy to have Agis barking at him.

Though, I was thinking - and if I were a dog and suddenly a human appeared on the outside of the building and started touching my house - I'd probably be upset too.
