Who Is That Doggie in the Front Yard?

My two golden retrievers, Maverick and Rocky, have been very distraught the past few days.  They are very concerned about a light up golden retriever we put in our front yard this year when decorating for Christmas.

 

It all started with a quick trip to Home Depot when I saw this cutie pie and had to have it for our house.

 

Maverick especially has been obsessed with this guy ever since.

I had to put him on his leash and walk him outside to prove to him that it wasn't a real dog before he would calm down the first day.

 

Ever since then, he won't take his eye off this dude.

It is pretty cute just guarding the house out there.

I'm sure Maverick is thinking "If I only had thumbs, I could open this door and go have a long talk with this poser dog".

 

Luckily Christmas decorations only last about a month at our house. 
Then his life will be back to normal, until next year!

Belinda that is so darn cute!  I can see Barney being just as concerned as he's the protector of the home.  Very cute addition to the family!

Just saw that Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD got one! Guess we need to head to our Hillsboro HOme Depot, sans our Goldens! It could put them in a real tizzy.

Belinda, I don't blame Maverick one bit... after all, he's the dog of the house and his job is to keep other dogs away!

You better keep a firm leash on Maverick or he will take a bite out of your display!

You had me at doggie.  That is SO cute I can see why you had to have it.  Maybe after Christmas just put it in the garage and Maverick can have a new friend.
