You know how sometimes you see something that just makes you scratch your head?
Lu and I were walking Angus the other night. Just a nice little walkie around the block. I'm paying attention to him because he's still in puppy mode and requires frequent input. Lu and I are just chatting and enjoying the evening. Suddenly Angus goes on alert and growls. You dog people know what I'm talking about here. You know the difference between a "What's that?" growl and a fight or flight posture and that deep in his chest "There may be something there that needs killin" growl. Yeah, it was the second. I looked up and saw, jogging right down the middle of the street.....
A 6 foot chicken. Seriously.
Angus freaked. I mean, that's just a bit outside his experience. Heck, it's kinda outside my experience and after 24 years as a cop I've seen pretty much everything. Except a 6 foot jogging chicken apparently.
With a jaunty little wave he passed us and went on trotting up the road. Probably to do battle with the forces of evil. I kept looking around for a 6 foot lion with a giant F on his red sweater.
Super Chicken in my little town. I never knew our evil genius/mad scientist population was that high. Maybe this means that Angus is really Underdog and was just pissed at this clear violation of his crime fighting territory.
Who knew? Next time I'll get his autograph.
