Guard dogs II

Gifted to us by Lynne and Bob

These lovely little beasts have been sitting on our counter, awaiting my husband’s duty of placing them near the door. As Lynne explained, the man should place them there so that they will “keep” his macho-manliness (or some such equivalent) as he enters the home and give it back to him when he goes outside to face his battles. In modern American man’s case, the commute and the eight-hour workday. I’m wondering if Scott is a bit nervous about giving up his machoness to this snarling pair. (They do look wickedly similar to gargoyles.)
