Things outside the window that need barking at, in priority order, according to Ashley 🐕 :

  1. Dogs
  2. Squirrels
  3. Small children, especially if running, especially if closer than the sidewalk
  4. Strangers, especially if pausing
  5. Anyone wearing a hood or hat
  6. Anyone carrying a box or bag, especially if carrying it awkwardly.

Ashley likes to go for her first walk of the morning right at sunrise (hence the numerous sunrise photos here over the past year). But this time of year the sun rises so late, Ashley has started getting me out well before sunrise.
