For Erin Joyce, the three little holes in their fence are not a big deal. However, for Billie and Seymour, who take the job of spying on their mom seriously, they make a huge difference.
Billie is an Australian kelpie and dingo mix. Recently, she discovered that the wooden fence that separates their driveway from the yard has a small hole. Since then, the spot became Billie’s obsession. When Dean, Erin’s partner, noticed the little dog’s routine, he decided to do something to help.
Billie would stick her nose out of the small hole to sniff whenever Erin goes to and from the car. So, Dean added a few more for Billie to see her mom come and go. The couple never expected that both Billie and Seymour would like the holes so much.
Billie’s baby brother, Seymour, also loves to play peekaboo with their parents. Seymour is only six months old, but his mom said that he is already the life of the party. He loves getting involved in everything that they do.
Billie and Seymour are thrilled to have a special place that allows them to monitor the neighborhood while they are at their yard’s safety. Meanwhile, Erin is delighted to have furry little snouts that greet her whenever she returns home from work.
When Erin’s neighbor adopted Wynston, an airedale terrier, the two dogs’ peepholes got a bit bigger. Seymour became best friends with Wynston, too. Thus, his parents decided to install a gate in their fence, allowing the two to go between the yards.
As soon as Erin and Dean return home from work in the afternoon, they immediately open the gate for Seymour and Wynston’s playdate. Erin said that this is great for their socialization, mainly because the lockdown prevents them from meeting other dogs at the park.
Billie acts like a surrogate mother to Seymour and Wynston. She enjoys watching the two play. Whenever she sees that things are getting a bit too rough, she intervenes and gives them a timeout.
Billie and Seymour love to keep an eye on their mom. Meanwhile, Erin finds their spying on her too adorable. They are her best friends. Erin said that she could not imagine her life without Billie and Seymour’s happy faces greeting her whenever she gets home.
