Bodie is pretty much scared of everything, and Sam is our watchdog. If Sam barks and runs around the yard to check stuff out, Bodie stays inside until he's sure everything is ok. So it was quite a surprise when we were awakened at 2 a.m. by very loud scary "big dog" barks coming from Bodie last night. He was downstairs at the front door, and we all sleep upstairs. Sam was sleeping at our feet, and he nearly jumped out of his skin (well, we all did). Sam rushed downstairs and joined Bodie in the barking.
SU went to check it out. There was a truck with men in it parked in front of our house, and our outside faucet was running, and SU said he could smell gasoline. They drove off when SU went outside. Very weird. We just hope that it was something harmless like they had gas on their hands and were trying to wash it off. :-\ I was glad that Sam and Bodie sound pretty scary when they guard our house.

That's kind of scary that someone came into your yard in the middle of the night.
VERY scarey !!!!!
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
