Bark bark bark
Dexter is the best alarm system we could have ever invested in. He knows when something is off, even the slightest bit. And he alerts us by bark bark barking. He did this when he saw Daddy's Halloween costume, and did it again the other night when Daddy had on a fedora. He knows that these things are not normal for Daddy.
Today, we got a firm knock on the door in the late afternoon, and Dex knew it was not normal, and not the knock of a friend or neighbor, so he bark bark barked to alert me, and to tell that person to BACK OFF. It was just one of the men from the road crew asking me to move my car so they could apply sealant to the edge of the newly paved road. No harm, but Dex knew it was not a person who was normally at our house.
What a good little watchdog he is.
