As I promised last week, Pierre is going to tell you about some backyard mischief. I should warn you that he has a tendency to embellish the story. To find out what actually happened, please watch the video.
Pierre: “Thank you, Gramma. Just the other day, I was performing my usual perimeter search. Sometimes when I am inside the house, renegade squirrels intrude on our turf. Anyway, I was sniffing along the fence line when I saw a UCO (Unidentified Crawling Object). My instincts told me that it was a miniature Army tank. I barked for back up only to remember that Bentley was sunning in the front room. I was on my own, just one fearless Westie up against an armored tank. From a distance, I was pretty sure that I saw a huge gun sticking out of the front of it.”
Me: “You certainly approached with extreme caution. The way that you were barking, I was afraid that you’d discovered a snake.”
Bentley: “Seriously dude, it was a turtle.”
Pierre: “Well yes, I figured that out when I approached. I tapped on the shell and hollered, Hey Donatello! Hey Raphael! Then, I started singing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles song. I don’t guess that it was one of the famous turtles, but it still may have been a ninja. I turned my head for just a second and it started to move. I was on it like white on rice. Bentley, you should have seen me. I started with the Ali Shuffle and then I was floating like a butterfly and ready to sting like a bee. Buzzzzz.”
Bentley: “You were trying to rough up a turtle? I remember when I saw one for the first time. Dogs remember their first turtle, squirrel, and frog; it is a rite of passage. I’d like to think that I handled myself with a bit more cool than you did. *Snicker, chuckle, ROFL*
Pierre: “Scoff if you must, but I probably saved the entire family from a turtle apocalypse. That so-called turtle may have looked innocent, but he had a weapon hidden inside his armor. It looked like a machine gun or something. If Gramma hadn’t made me come inside, I’d have put my Karate moves on him. Ahhh Yaaa!”
Me: “Why don’t we let our friends watch your video and judge for themselves?”
Pierre: “That’s a great idea. I hate that you didn’t get its weapons on film. I guess that I put such fear into him that he hid them. Even a turtle knew his weapons were useless against Pierre the Perimeter Protector. Roll it!
