Look who stopped by for a visit! He's staying over here for about a week while The Wife's brother goes on vacation, and I couldn't be happier to have him back around the house. I mean, I did make the right decision in giving him over to her brother (its going to be tough to have him even for a week with the baby), but I'll be damned if I don't miss my little buddy. But when her brother dropped him off here yesterday, he let me know what Tex has been up to this week- Apparently yesterday while him and his wife were at work, somebody broke into their house by kicking in their front door. Now, he lives kinda in the country (one of the main reasons Tex likes it so much out there- lots a land and ponds for him to play in), so no one is really around to see or hear any kind of disturbance. Nobody except my buddy Tex! From what the police gathered, they think Tex heard people in the house, went to see who was there to play with him, and ended up scaring off the burglar(s). The only thing they took was some cheap jewelry that was on a nightstand, as well as a drawer full of quarters. Thats it. They didn't take the cash that was ALSO in the nightstand, nor the gun. No TVs or anything. I can hardly believe it- Tex... Scaring someone? They must have been really scared of dogs, because Tex doesn't have a mean bone in his body. So her brother was very lucky to make out as he did, and I get to play with a hero dog for a week! THAT'S GREAT HUSTLE! I know someone who's getting a giant bone and a piece of steak tonight! I may even let him stay inside tonig... *Looks at dog hair that has ALREADY accumulated*... I mean, I'll go outside to play with him all the time! And in his honor, his daddy is going to drink a bunch of wine and take The Wife to meet Bruce from "Swamp People" this evening at the Piggly Wiggly. BEST EVENING EVER!
