Don’t let his looks fool you. He is quite the attack dog. At least when it comes to garbage trucks, and that made for a very exciting morning this morning. Just as it was time to leave for school, DD heard the garbage truck and noticed that the boys had forgotten to take the garbage out. I rushed out to make sure we were not left with a stinky can full of the weeks yuck. I got it out to the curb just as the garbage truck was finishing next door. DD opened the door to leave for school and out ran Spike determined to defend me from this garbage eating creature. I don’t know what this seven pound dog thought he could do against this monstrous being but he was fearless. And no amount of persuasion from me was going to draw him away from this intruder. He was determined to defend his family and their garbage. Fortunately the driver just stayed put and enjoyed the show. I’m sure it was the highlight of his morning, as I chased my ferocious dog. Fortunately a neighbor drove by and stopped as soon as she opened her car door Spikes love of a ride in the car overtook his desire to defend me from the garbage truck and he jumped in her car. I will be forever grateful to her. Not only did she save Spike she saved me from further embarrassment. I think one of the hearts I made in the previous post has found a home. I brought Spike in to find DD crying, afraid she had just about killed her beloved dog. She had watched the whole seen afraid Spike was going to be crushed by the garbage eater at any moment and sure it was all her fault. My poor tenderhearted daughter needed some extra love. Needless to say we were late for school this morning.
