For today’s post, we are going to the other side of the valley and the hu-grandmom’s house. Everyone assumes that any tale of mischief over at The Herd Annex is bound to be about Ruby, but not this time. Today’s tale is about Tartok.
Tartok is an extremely trustworthy boy. Unlike his sister, Ruby, he never counter-surfs. Oh, sure, he might like to share a snack if you are offering, but he is quite well behaved.
We should also explain the Tartok loves his kingdom. In the photograph below, he is positioned in a favorite spot. The picture is taken from the road below the Herd Annex’s house. The house sits on a point and the road curves around the house on three sides. Thus, from the vantage point, Tartok has quite the view.
The hu-grandmom was cleaning the porch one day when Tartok stepped outside through the dog door. Both dog and human were surprised at the other’s presence – and the fact that Tartok had a magazine hanging from his mouth. Upon investigation, we have discovered that Tartok – polite, well-behaved Tartok – has been acquiring items from inside the house and burying them in the yard. A phone. A shoe. And magazines. Lots of magazines. Apparently, Sir Tartok has needed some reading material while he mans his sentry post.
Is there an attorney-at-claw in the audience?
