When mum comes in Josie and I like to have a sniff around the porch and see which cats have been in the area and sometimes we have a little wander out the front. Not for long. Mum doesn't really like us out there. She leaves the front door open and pretty much we only get the time she takes to take her coat off.
On Friday we wandered a little further than usual and met the most frightening thing I have ever seen and it was heading right for us. I ran as fast as I could to the safety of home.
Mum saw me hurtle in.
"Hide," I called out as I ran straight past her. "It's coming".
Mum ignored me and went to the door to see where Josie was in case she was in trouble. Josie was also running as fast as she could and hurtled past mum. Before mum could turn round and ask us what was happening it rounded the doorway in hot pursuit of us cats.
It looked at mum and mum looked at it and it about turned and ran away again.
Mum shut the door firmly and we were safe.
"I think that's the dog from two doors down. She lives with a cat so probably just wanted to play."
"It didn't feel like that," I said. "Would you have fought it if it had got one of us?"
Mum smiled. "Toby - I would fight a lion for you."
Mum is so silly. "Lions are family - you don't attack your relatives. More likely I would be rescuing you if a lion came in our garden. Would you fight the dog?"
"Yes I would fight the dog. And I'm glad we're unlikely to be able to test your lion theory."
After that scary start - it's the closest I've ever been to a dog and the closest I ever want to be to a dog - it was an top weekend. It was much warmer and sunny and mum had a bad cold so spent a lot of it snoozing on the sofa where we joined her so that was cosy happy.

Oh Toby, sorry you gots skeered. I gotsa doggy. His name is lil Bear. He woulnant hurt you--but he prolly would has fun chasing you. We plays chase alla times.
I live with two doggies - they're pretty good for snuggling with, but I wouldn't want to meet one I don't know.
Oh Toby, dogs are scary. They smell bad too. Did you notice? I don't like them. Glad that you and Josie got away.
We got scared by two large dogs chasing us one time. Thank goodness we were safe in a stroller, but it scared the living daylights out of us. Mom got us home really fast!
