The creature who gives me (and my Sweet, Sweet Juno) fits creeps ever closer. He used to run when I got near the end of the driveway. Or run when I opened the front door. Now he has grown bold. Just this afternoon, he came up behind me while I was walking IN MY OWN DRIVEWAY, mind you...and BARKED. When I said, "NO!" and "GIT!" he did not seem to grasp the urgency of my command. He stood and stared. Even when I said, "BAD DOG!" he stood his ground.
That's what I'm talkin' about! Is this a breed? Is he a mix? He looks pretty strong to me. I am positive he could outrun me. And pretty sure his teeth are sharper than my tongue. Copper (for lack of an introduction, I call him by his color) comes and goes at will. He answers to no man. Or woman. And only this morning, I saw him in the front yard,
Let the record show that Jack looked quite embarrassed. He is used to being the humper. He tucked his tail under and slunk away as he could, ending up at the hose holder, kind of cowering under it where Copper couldn't get to him. I call shenanigans! That ruthless brute should not be coming into my yard and humping Puppy Jack!
It's times like this that I wish Farmer H had gotten me a male german shepherd pup instead of (or along WITH, now that I've grown to love him) my half-heeler half dachshund. They are protective of property, I read. The females are protective of the family and kids. I want a guard dog, I guess.
Probably a sign saying "NO HUMPERS ALLOWED" would not be effective, you think?
