Dakota the Avenger!


See that steely look in her eyes? This is Dakota, the Avenger! She is my hero!

First, I must tell you that the moms are night owls. They stay up all hours playing Yahtzee and any other game that I can't touch. Late last night they were not playing, but were watching the Braves blow a close game. We finally ended up in bed at one o'clock in the morning.

Surprise! The evil neighbors (who run away when they see me coming - he he) were outside under the bedroom window playing games. Last weekend they stayed out there until three am when finally mom went to tell them to go inside.

Mom was sick (fever of 102.4!), so the other mom wasn't going to put up with it this time. She went out and told them it was time to take the game inside. She was very polite - she's a nice lady. The evil neighbors ignored her, like she didn't even exist. At that point, in rushes.....Dakota the Avenger! Dakota ran out onto the back porch and proceeded to bark viciously at the bad people. They were safe on the other side of the fence, but she was impressive, nonetheless. I didn't know she had it in her!

Normally mom wouldn't let us bark and disturb the other neighbors, but she doesn't like to be ignored, so she didn't RUSH to bring Dakota inside. The bad (and drunk) people finally went inside, but only after mom threatened to call the police.

Now, we're going back to bed to make up for lost sleep. Good night everyone. I will sleep well knowing that Dakota is here to protect me!
