Things that go bark in the night...

Friday, May 18, 2007

So last night (Thursday) my Mom was way too wired after the season finales of Grey's Anatomy and ER to go to sleep that she decided to take me on a walk around our little neighborhood. We don't usually walk a lot at night...mostly because Mom is kinda lazy (Ruby's Mom: I am not!) and it's really dark. But I'm always up for a new adventure!

It was after 11pm so Mom said I needed to be quiet (aka no barking) since it was bed time for all our neighbors. I figured that shouldn't be a problem...but than all these weird things started to happen...

First off, there was this dog following me! Can you imagine I have a stalker!!!! The doggie was kinda shaped like me, and sometimes was behind me and sometimes in front of me. It really freaked me out that I started to bark at it, but it didn't bark back. Mom said it's name was Shadow...but I thought Shadow was the doggie that lived in the house next door...the doggie that looks a lot like Thrawn, and the doggie that was following me didn't look anything like Thrawn. Hmmmm...than who is this Shadow I wonder????

The next weird thing was that there were all these cats...everywhere, like a million of them (Ruby's Mom: Ruby, there were only 3, the 3 we always see during the day). And the were evil looking. And they would hiss at me...I was really afraid they were going to hurt me and my Mom so I barked, um, again. (Ruby's Mom: Can you see a pattern yet?)

Then as we were turning the corner of one of our buildings - one that I always go by, I heard this horrible hissing noise. And these giant thingies came poking out of the ground and spitting water...a lot of water. It was so scarey and I just couldn't help myself...I just barked and barked and barked and barked. It was frightening. I go by this building everyday and there was never anything like this! I couldn't figure out what was going on.

By this point I think my Mom was really worried that our neighbors would be mad because I was barking...so we started back to our apartment. I was just trying to protect my Mom of all the scarey stalker dogs and evil cats and water spitting thingies...I guess that is why we don't walk much late at night.

you are so brave to try to protect your mom! Tanner knows about that shadow dog and he barks at it too. Can you believe the shadow dog can be here in AZ at the SAME TIME it can be at your house?!

You are so brave. Shadown mmmm I believe I may have heard of that stalker. He disappears very quickly sometimes and other times is huge. Be careful.

We don't have many of these stalkers in our neighborhood, thank goodness! I'd be scared too - and I hate getting wet! Isn't spitting against the law? Did you call the dog police?

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Hey Ruby, I'm on guard at night too. I'm super suspicious of everyone and everything at night. My mom thinks I can't see very well after dark. I think I'm just a toughie.

I completely agree about nighttime. I hate it. Everything scares me and I bark a lot, too!

Hey, I've seen that Shadow dog! OMG, I've barked at it so much that maybe he ran off to California and now he's stalking YOU! Oh, I'm sorry, Ruby.

That shadow dog gets around I think or maybe there are millions of them. I've seen it here. Millions of them is a scary thought.

Be careful out there at night. You never know what is lurking out there in the dark.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

I'm a bit of a scaredy cat and I don't like walking in the dark. That shadow thing certainly gets around cos I've seen him here in the UK too! J x
