I don’t like it when Nina rides me and leaves Smokn Joe at home. What if something happened and I wasn’t there to protect him?! What if something happened to me, and he wasn’t there to protect me?
But … I trust Nina to keep me safe. Tipper goes with us a lot, too. I like it when Tipper goes along with us. She runs off all the monsters in the woods before I get there. She is such a brave dog. When she doesn’t go with us, I am always looking for her … and for the Boogy Man – since she isn’t there to chase him away! Nina often talks to me and even sings to me. I like the sound of her voice. She is as brave as Tipper!
Nina and Tipper are part of my “herd”. We are all warriors, and brave when we are together. I hate leaving Smokn Joe alone because he gets upset, running up and down the fence line, hollaring like he’s gonna die! He sounds so pathetic, but once I can’t hear him yelling for me anymore, I am fine. I have my herd with me.
