Since Momma was too busy robbing me of my manhood -- and I don't mean the trip to the vet -- we don't have any pictures. So I have recreated the scene. My good buddy Goose has volunteered to help out. No, not that Goose. This Goose.
Don't worry, no Gooses were harmed in this recreation. So. The betrayal. It started innocently enough. I was on patrol in the yard while my sissy Cinderella did her business. Then suddenly, I caught the scent.
Yes, we had an INVADER in our yard! I set up a ferocious round of barking to let everyone know that I was on the job and RAN as fast as I could to the far end of the yard. Sure enough -- there it was!!
Yes, that's right, my yard had been invaded by a horrible, ugly, nasty TREE RAT!! (Played by Goose.) I immediately grabbed him in my fierce jaws and prepared to defend my family and my home.
And then do you know what happened?? I was betrayed. BETRAYED!! Momma started shrieking and screaming and saying "Casey, no! Casey, leave it!" Leave it?!
I can't look at any of you now. I'm just too ashamed. Maybe someday I'll recover... but I'm not so sure. I don't think I'll ever be able to see Momma in quite the same way.
