This morning in the dark, George's hackles were raised high like a bad mohawk as he circled wiiiiiide around this basketball about 4 times, giving it a good sideways stare. He sidled closer with each pass, giving some gruff half-barks to warn that imposing basketball that he was there and he meant business. The ball didn't move. Phew, that was a close one!
We now add basketball to the list of threatening objects from which George has courageously saved us. Others include small children, a backpack, a robe, a lawnchair, a garbage bag and a blanket.
Here's George, in case you're unfamiliar with this gooberbrain.
