Here’s my take:
Got to earn my keep They said, so here I am outside after dark.
I don’t mind. I’m used to being outside. I have a kennel, a comfy bed, food and water, and toys to play with. Not that I’m always left to my own devices you understand as most days I’m with Them. They take me for walks and rides in the car and sometimes little people come and play. They’re a bit too squealy for my liking, but they don’t hurt me, just make my ears ring and there’s no volume control or off switch.
Tonight I’m on guard duty.
There’s been some looting going on in the neighbourhood and the line is a lure as it’s mostly clothes that are being taken.
There’s a camera behind me and I’m keeping watch.
A-ha. I see movement to the right. Someone is climbing the fence.
The idea is for me not to bark as they want to catch them red handed. I just have to wag my tail as if in greeting when really it’s the signal that something’s going down.
That’s the easy part.
Oh. I was not expecting that.
The guilty party is a child and he’s wearing an oversized tee shirt and jumper over shorts.
Maybe this is the only way he can keep warm. Maybe my people can help and give him a home as they did me from the rescue shelter six months ago………………..
