My watchdog

Hey, he may not stop you from breaking in but he'll damned sure tell me what time you were there.............

Punkindog is my best bud. I got him about 15 years ago and was told that he was full blooded lab. As time passed I realized that he wasn't full blooded lab - he was too long legged, his ears were too long, he had a weird lope and he BAYED instead of barked. And then I remembered the Black and Tan Coonhound that was next door to the ranch where I got him.

Lately he's started collecting things that have my scent on them, putting them in a big pile and laying around them, almost like he's guarding them from the Evil Cats. It's gotten to the point that when I walk in from work I take off my work watch and hand it to him. He'll take it and just carry it around for a while before he drops it and goes looking for my hat, Copenhagen can, beer bottle or anything else I might have handled.
