So this happened last night:
Major props to my herding dog who just busted a scumbag in the act of trying to break into my garage. I'm buying her a whole chicken.

Right now some very tall white jackass in his late teens/early twenties is still trying to scrub his pants clean after Coco chased after him for more than a block. She quite possibly woke sleeping children with her merciless barking, and I’d apologize but… if I knew that my neighbor’s dog had caught someone trying to break into their house I’d walk over and give that dog a whole roasted chicken, too.
Good dog, Coco. I feel like the only commensurate reward for this is to let her loose in a field of sheep.
