As you are aware, I am now a Marine. My grandpa was the first to let me know which is only appropriate since he is a retired Marine. Since my entry into service I have been promoted. It all started like this....
Mommy asked Daddy to PLEASE fix the flood light on the back left side of the house so our security cameras have better night vision. Lucky for me and my furry family it was a beautiful weekend so we were able to stay outside with Daddy while he was accomplishing his chore. Even luckier for us there was a problem with the light so it took him a LONG time to get it working. We ran and ran and ran for hours. We even played tackle a few times. Eventually mom came out to see what was taking daddy so long and I decided it was time to show off for her so I stirred up the crew again and when all of them started chasing me (and realize I am REALLY FAST being a Whippet and all) I made a quick maneuver in the opposite direction and stopped "on a dime" behind a tree with a large bush beside it.
Mom was telling grandpa about it later that night and grandpa told me that I had mastered the art of camouflage! Hence, I was promoted to PFC Smith. I understand that to be Private First Class Tina Smith but I overheard Daddy saying it meant Pretty Funny Canine. I think he is just jealous b/c I have advanced in ranking sooo quick.
