Here are a few more interesting things in our neighborhood that I did not get to tell you about before. These pictures were all taken when the weather was still nice, but now that it's cold, we don't much like to go walking anymore. Well, I don't like to go walking. My brothers will walk even when it's cold and wet outside. This is because they don't have the good sense that I do. Even Mom refuses to walk if it's icy out or if it's below 20 degrees, so she has reasonably good sense, too.
So Mom let Gabe go right up to the terrier because she knew what Gabe would do, and she wanted to make a point to the terrier's dad. Sure enough, Gabe sniffed the terrier and then jumped on him and clamped his teeth on the back of the terrier's neck, which in dog-speak means "I am the boss of you!" The terrier rolled over on his back and started yelping like Gabe was killing him, which Gabe was not. And meanwhile, the terrier's dad was calling him to come, and the terrier went running home.
Then Mom was waiting for the terrier's dad to apologize for letting his dog run loose in the neighborhood, but all he did was look angry. Maybe he was waiting for Mom to apologize for letting Gabe attack this man's off-leash dog, but Mom didn't see any reason to apologize. We think the man never got the point that his dog might be in danger because he was running around loose, but the dog got the point. We know this because he has never come close to us again!
