False Alert

Early this morning, as I was stumbling around trying to assemble myself for the day, the dogs went into Red Alert mode. This happens maybe a dozen times a day, so I didn't pay much attention at first, but the leaping and hollering went on and on. When questioned, the dogs claimed that the front yard was teeming with 16 English Setters, 41 cats, 312 rabbits, 4003 moles, and 3 fire-breathing dragons. So I went out on the front porch to investigate the source of all the noise and commotion. Nothing. Not even a single hummingbird. Jinx says that it was his comrades' loud warning that drove the invaders off, but I'm thinking these dogs have vivid imaginations.
