Samson Looks For the Blue Moon and Has a Scary Experience

Samson Says:

So the other night, I was in the house, minding my own business (OK chewing on mommy's hat) when I heard the TV human saying that there was a Blue Moon outside. 

This I had to see, so I asked to be let out in the dog run. You know, sometimes I wonder if you humans, nice as you may be, really know what you are talking about. 

The moon was the same old color it always is, but the clouds around it were like a little blue, maybe. Feeling a bit tricked by this TV human, I decided to kill a mouse first, then lie down and relax a bit.

I'm still hot, you can see by my tongue hanging out. Anyways, there I am, minding my own business once again, when suddenly I hear something moving in the bushes. 

Then I smell a strange smell! Not a coyote, I know those scraggly critters by now and they don't scare me, not one bit. No, this is something I've never smelled before and I feel danger. I hear more rustling in the bushes, oh, I don't know about this. It's dark out and the moon goes behind the clouds just when I need it to see. Then it gets so dark I can't figure out what's out there. It's up to no good, I can feel it. Maybe it's after me. 

Suddenly, I feel the hair on my back stand straight up in the air and this sound comes out of my throat: "Grrrrr, grrrrr, grrrr!" I never heard that sound come out of me before and now I'm scared. I hate to admit it, but I'm scared. So I let out a lot of barks for my daddy to come and help me. As soon as he comes, here comes that sound again: "Grrrr, grrrrr, grrrrr!"

 "Samson," daddy says, "that's the first time I ever heard you growl! What's going on out here? Look at your hackles, they are raised all the way up in the air!" Daddy's sounding very excited while I'm wondering what are my hackles, where are my hackles? I didn't know I had hackles and I didn't know I could growl. How could it happen, coming out of my throat like that? By the time I calm down and daddy looks around, the danger is past. I will never know what was out there. It was a scary moment that I absolutely blame on the TV human and his Blue Moon. Full of tricks they are these humans on the TV.

Have a nice day everyone!
