Pierre Meets a Turtle

   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!

  6. Pierre, you certainly told that turtle who was boss. Though from the size of your bark, I mighta thought it was a bigger turtle. ;-)

  9. Ah - you met a walking rock - we come across them nearly everyday at MY park. We agree with Easy - they are barely worth sniffing

  17. Mr. N might have had a similar reaction! Come to think of it, I don't think he's met a turtle yet.

  18. We are most impressed with the courage and bravery against such a formidable foe with hidden machine guns. Sometimes little dogs are not as appreciated as they should be.

  20. Judging by all the ear movement there must have been a lot of emotions going through your little barking head! But of course the most impawtent thing is that you protected everyone from that turtle!

    Your Pals,

  25. Very cute video and I do believe I saw a quick flash of a weapon somewhere in there. It was very fast but I'm pretty sure I saw one just like Pieree said:) Great job, Pierre ... your family was saved from the tank due to your bravery!

  26. The turtle was obviously frozen in fear and surrendering, Pierre!

  27. Pierre, you totally forgot to mention that it could have been part of a turtle zombie apocalypse! What if undead turtles are trying to take over the bayou?
