Black Pearls of Wisdom...

Watchhim, watchhim, watchhim...

It's suppose to rain on and off all day today, tomorrow and Monday here in Chicago. So, when the Mom got home from the newspaper this morning at 4:30 a.m. she took me out for a quick walk. Usually there's nobody out that late but us. The Mom carries the warning siren Flicka's Mom sent us, and a short, thick stick that the Brother made from a tree branch for the Mom to carry, just in case. No worries here.

When we got about a block from home, a man parked his car up ahead of us. As he started to walk toward us he acted pretty drunk. The Mom said "watchhim, watchhim, watchhim" real low and quiet like. I went into my cattledog walk/crouch as we continued walking toward him. The Mom kept saying "watchhim" and I watched him BIG TIME! I didn't take my eye off him as he passed us. "Good girl, Dixie, Good Girl!"

The Mom kept walking. Suddenly she realized my Flexi-tape leash was extended all the way out. I had stopped walking and had turned around so I could to watch the man until he went into his house. Still in my best "cattledog" crouch. Just in case...

Not too bad for a scaredy-pup from a shelter, eh?
