Well, I have to say that life is very different when the rest of the band is on the road and I’m back at home … but I know that Rachel, our wonderful housesitter, really needs my help. After all, there have been at least 40 attempted squirrel assaults on our home in the past week alone, and Rachel has no idea how to stave them off.
Don’t get me wrong – she’s fantastic and one of my new favorite humans! But most of the people I know (or dogs that only walk on two feet, like Benjy) have no idea how or when to bark most effectively to ensure the safety of the den … particularly when marauding squirrels are involved. And I am indeed one lucky dog – there is no greater blessing in this life than knowing how one can be of service, and I’ve certainly found my niche!
