Sunday the neighbor behind us was getting some limbs cut down and a worker was in the tree next to our fence. Our pit bull / red heeler mix went out the doggie door with his fur standing up from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.
I guarantee if that guy had fallen out of the tree he would have been dead before he hit the ground. The rest of the dogs just barked.
However when guest show up PitStop is as happy to see them as he is to see us when we get home. He is as gentle as a lamb with the grand-babies too.
We had two separate ‘crime sprees’ in the last few months, one, copper thieves and the other, people breaking into cars.
In a 4 mile radius, we were the only house that never got ‘hit’.
He’ll “be nice” if I tell him to but there have been several incidents where he disregarded my command.
Since I seriously suck at ‘character judgement’, I trust him to discern good from bad people.
If he disobeys my ‘be nice’ order, he’s no doubt got a good reason for doing so.
