Corky on Elephant Security Patrol

Part of my puppy duties to earn a weekly doggy toy allowance is critter security patrol. In 9 months my record for doggy home security has been spotless. No alligators or elephants have dared enter my territory, yet as shown in the photo below while making today’s rounds my favorite palm tree looks highly suspicious.

Corky dreams of elephant patrol

What do you think? Feel free to comment or you may want to download the Corky on patrol desktop wallpaper (1200px x 900px) for a closer look. Thank goodness Dad explained that I only dreamed my palm tree was an elephant, and he made the trick picture. Haha!

My record for critter security patrol remains perfect because little animals like squirrels or lizards don’t count.

UPDATE: Curious about how this photo special effect was done? My pals in Twitter were and asked, so Dad posted an illustrated step-by-step xara photo edit tutorial on his blog.

    Dear Corky:
    Keep up the patrols. I am sure your human friends are quite happy with your vigilance…And, in my opinion, there is no such thing as over-vigilance. I live in Manhattan and don’t have much of a perimeter to guard except for cat burglars coming in through the window on the air shaft (luckily none so far).

    Hi, Randolph,

    Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment. You can go on patrol for rogue elephants in NYC, too. If the circus is in town the authorities can’t blame you. Otherwise, keeping a perfect record protecting Manhattan from being overrun by elephants should be easy.

    I visited your blog and online store for dog apparel. I’m thinking you should sell photo t-shirts of you because 1) you’re a very handsome black Lab, 2) you’re a famous writer of dog books, and 3) a portion goes to local pet rescue.

    Best of luck with proceeds from your online store helping towards your goal of making Manhattan a no-kill shelter zone, too. I was dumped on the street at 4 months old and made it through a kill shelter to a loving family, but not all pets are as lucky. Wish you continued success in your writing, too.
