This would have ordinarily been a rather crappy picture but it could not have been taken any other way except through the storm door. Ruff and I always get up a few hours before my wife and Axl. So after we have breakfast Ruff goes out by himself for some fresh air. The fenced in part of our backyard has the rear deck and one side overlooks the garage area below the house. We have two back doors to the deck. The way the house was built the door in the picture below had a strange looking door/window installed when we bought the house 9 years ago. I replaced this with a real outside door and storm door to match the one on the other side of the room. When I built the deck I included a short extension to the side by this door and it became a popular hangout spot for our nosy Rottweilers. They like to lay out there and keep watch on our neighbors. So this morning after breakfast I noticed Ruff playing the part of our ever vigilant watchdog.
Here are two pictures of what it looked like before the deck was finished.
