Woo hoo! This makes it official...

In the wee morning hours, I woke-up crazy lady's household with incessant pacing, growling, and this strange, high-pitched yap. (Crazy lady calls it my "danger Will Robinson" bark) I was pushing against her legs and pointing at the front window.  I have a history of warning others, so crazy lady took my behavior very seriously. When she looked outside, she thought she saw someone dressed in black, wearing a black hood and hiding in the bushes.  This odd human had tripped the security lights, and he (or she) was trying to avoid the glare.  Crazy lady had a hard time identifying this person in the dark-- was it human?  a shadow? (yeah, too many horror stories are wrapped in her fuzzy brain)-- but as soon as they started to move up the street,  I gave another high-pitched "yap" and crazy lady called the police.

We have had a lot of homes recently burglarized in our neighborhood, and the police did an immediate "area check."  Although the police didn't find this lurking human, they were very impressed with my "alert" skills.  You see, a lot of dogs will loudly bark, which is good and scary.  I do this during the day, especially when Evil Ones (aka cats) venture onto the property.  However, when it's dark or someone is dressed in all black (especially if they are wearing hoods or hats), I do a "high pitched yap" and find a human for help.  Crazy lady suspects I've had some training-- but, I'm not saying a word.  I prefer to keep my allure mystique.

After all, it's just another day-in-the-life of a working dog!
