I’m dog-sitting Louie da Boss’ baby… in the daylight she’s a happy, yappy little thing that loves to wrestle with Kaylee, who has about 100 pounds on her. Coda also guards the parking lot against all things noisy, going so far as to sneak under the gate whenever my back is turned, to expand her patrol.
Once the sun goes down, however, she wants to go home. The only thing that cheers her up is mousing… as I have no live mice for her to hunt, Coda hunts the cat toys. The only issue I have with this, is that I am expected to stay awake – all night, if need be – to be grateful and gush over the latest “catch”. As this catch is the same damned catch as the last catch, I tire of the game quickly…
Sleep, little hunter – we’re safe, I promise.
