Mr. Personality, Leo for short, is a handful. Lord, I'd forgotten how energetic young Dobies can be, and this one has energy to spare. Last night, I was watching television in bed with the mirror covered to prevent barking. The character in the show knocked on a door and the dog went nuts. He bounced out of the bed and wouldn't stop barking until we got up and looked in every room, out the front window and finally took a trip out into the back yard. He was relentless in his hunt for barbarians.
Like someone else I know, I think he takes his job too seriously.
After scoping out the house, he finally fell asleep, but woke me up when he fell off the bed around 5 in the morning. Actually, he slid off the edge and had himself lodged between the bed and the wall. Seventy five pounds of flailing dog is heavy in the middle of the night.
I think I need to teach the dog a new job. I bet he'd like agility classes.
