It was Saturday afternoon. I took a break from pulling goatheads to watch Smooch stalk lizards in the jungle.
I looked behind me to find someone watching me watch Smooch.
Johnny: Her side of the fence looks more exciting than mine.
Johnny: I think I can...I think I can...
Johnny: I hope I can...I hope I can...
Johnny: That wasn't so bad.
Johnny: Now that I'm up here, which way should I go?
Johnny's tail pointed him due north toward me. And Smooch.
Johnny: Nice doggie.
Johnny: I take that back.
Johnny: Teach that dog some manners.
