So yesterday I was watching Pike out the front window as he sat watching me in the front window when the electric company meter-man walked through the gate to read the meters on the house in front of us. (He does it from our front yard.) Pike watched him while I watched Pike to see what he would do. Pike looked about as interested in the guy as he is interested in the door mat he was sitting on. Not even a bark. Just kinda watched him go about his business. I guess we can just hope he is a little meaner to actual threats like the gas-man. On another note we found him a new friend who lives around the corner. A little boxer girl who belongs to a nice couple. Pike hasn't met the other dog yet but we hope it goes well.
