Hello…I am Captain Jack. I’m Dan’s incredibly witty, charming, and handsome Jack Russell terrier. Since I know how to access Dan’s blog, I have something to say. Listen up…
Today is my final day of being home alone. I know that little short guy with the blonde hair made buko bucks with a couple of movies by the same name, but his was all Hollywood. Mine is real.
Now to be clear, I wasn’t completely “alone.” Bella was here. So was this new dude watching us. His name is David. Based on my observations, he has been more than adequate. But he doesn’t go to “work” in the office like Dan does. I miss “work.”
I consider myself alone when Dan isn’t around. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean being lonely. It’s opportunity. Just like the little blonde boy in the movies, I’ve had to ward off bad guys. David has to go to his own work outside the house and to school. During that time, we were attacked by a mob of ruthless squirrels, a pair of snakes resembling Bonnie and Clyde, and a raccoon that would make Tony Soprano blush. They all waited until David left and thought that with us home alone, they could raid our home. Bella the Diva needs protecting and being the sole man left in the house, I was left to battle. Battle I did. Feeling somewhat like Davy Crockett at The Alamo, I fended off the pesky varmints with all my guile, gumption, and creativity. The house remains standing and I’m clearly large and in charge. David didn’t notice a thing. Neither will Dan (although I will clearly tell him).
This might be one of the lead stories I will write for our new book. Dan sent off a signed agreement all the way across the country for our new Unleashed book to be published by the same company that did his first one, Insuring Success. I guarantee the stories of my bravery will trump anything he did on his trip to see my girls. I will make sure he (and you) know them all!
One more day of literally holding down the fort…as I am “home alone.” Rest assured, this dog is on duty!
