Things that don't go bump in the night

AP here-
It is a dark and rainy night and Tonka and I have been walking for an hour and we are almost home....
All of sudden Tonka takes off at warp speed with his tail between his legs and runs all the way to the end of the bungie leash. He stops and stands obviously scared with his head moving back and forth.
Now Tonka has a habit of running forward when people walk past us, which is silly since they pass us and he is now running the wrong way - not sure what he is thinking with that. This is the same type of rush forward but it has ended in fear not joy. We are 20 yards from the house and there are houses on every side and it is about 8:30pm and rainy. There is no traffic, no other dogs out, nothing that I can see or hear but Tonka is acting like something creepy or dangerous is around. In the past 2 years with the blind boy I have learned that if Tonka thinks something or someone is there - it is. We hurried the last 20 yards to the house.

Sleeping in the Foyer

Sleeping is such a great thing and the foyer is my favorite spot but I have grown a little over the past 2 years

Someone and something new

I was out walking this morning and I met a new friend. This really great guy Rich 'was working in the neighborhood and he stopped working to pet me. He got down really low to talk to me and I was sniffing his ear - cause I was going to lick it, (everyone knows I have a thing for ears) and I realized he had something different than the other humans I know. He had hair on his chin and above his lip. I stuck my nose almost all the way up his nose checking it out and my tail was wagging a mile a minute. AP and CM were cracking up cause I was so interested in a beard and mustache. He called me a funny boy and was laughing as we walked away. I didn't know humans had hairy faces, I guess you really do learn something new everyday.

First Responder

Tonight we were walking home from visiting AP's Mom and Dad and 2 motorcycles went flying up the street past us. CM said "they are going way to fast, thats an accident waiting to happen" and BAM one of them hit a car that had pulled out from a side street. AP gave me to CM and went running towards the wreck dialing 911. One of the motorcycles had T-boned the rear quater panel of the car and the rider was laying in the street. Next thing was a bunch of sirens and people everywhere - the sirens were LOUD! There was a firetruck and an ambulance and a State Trooper that likes big dogs - she has a Mastiff. The paramedics took the rider to the hospital - I hope she is OK....
