Though I am a big and tough Mastiff and NOT afraid of anything I might add. I do know that I need to keep my daddy safe. So, when he took me for a walk this evening and I smelled the night air I could tell something just didn’t smell right.
We walked out of the house and I caught a smell so I lifted my head in the air smelled in all directions and started barking a warning to whatever was out there, and I barked and barked. there was something out there, I just know it, call it doggies intuition I wanted to go back in right away but my dad laughed, (the fool!) and made me go pee. then I took a beeline straight for the front door and back into the house. I was able to bark at whatever it was better from the inside where it is safe!
My dad just wondered what all the fuss was about but trusted my superior sniffer and respected my decision to remain inside so I could keep him safe. I then took a defensive position halfway up the stairs so I could run all the way up if I saw anything come into the house. Upstairs there are more places to hide ….and protect my dad. I know Halloween is over and there is no such thing as scary monsters but in real life there could be …stuff out there. It is safer for my dad to play inside with me.
Life Lesson: Someone once said, “It is better to be safe than sorry”.
