Pet Stories: In Your Own Words


By: Kathy Hocherffer

My dog, Alice, is 3 1/2 years old. I rescued her pregnant mama from the street and kept her in my apartment until the puppies were born. Alice is the puppy I kept because she seemed so shy. I also have a 15-year-old dog, Peanut, who slept through this whole incident!

Two weeks ago at 2 am, Alice for no apparent reason woke up and started staring at the window in my bedroom. Curtains were closed. All night long I can hear the garage door open and close as tenants come and go. I pay no attention to it anymore. But here was Alice, not barking like she usually does when people come close to my window, but just glaring at the curtains. I looked out and saw what I thought was a tenant. So I told her it was OK. She did not go back to sleep but kept staring...I tried to cuddle her and pet her, but could not distract her from the window. She even ignored her yummy bones! So, I looked out again. This time I was shocked to see, what I though was a tenant coming home, was not a tenant at all, but a young man climbing onto the roof of a small shed outside my neighbor's window. He was peering in. Her window had a screen on it, but was open. Yikes! I immediately called 911. To make a long story short, the police caught the guy. What I can't figure out is HOW did Alice know, from a sound sleep, that that particular person was a "bad guy" and not simply a tenant coming home!

That's my dog story.
