A closer look at Blackie:
Now you can see his eyes better
Blackie also barks very very loudly. He barks at a cat, a stranger who walks by, a car that passes by. But he never barked at me nor Pr.WS, because he knew us since he was a baby. He eats very very fast too. He eats one meal per day in the evening and he could finish it within 5 minutes (I don't think he ever chewed his food). He eats everything, including jackfruit seeds, durian, tuna sandwitches etc. That's why Blackie is not only a good watch dog, but also a good janitor, because he cleans up all the leftover food.
Pr.WS patting Blackie
Blackie enjoys being patted. Every time he saw us he would lower his head and wait to be patted.
Sorry to say this, Blackie is a bit racist. He barks super loudly at people who are non-yellow, including the Indians, Africans, and Whites. Probably he is already used to staying with Chinese.
Blackie is a hero. Because of him and another dog (Bobby, he has another story, will tell you next time), the recent break-in at parsonage failed. I guess they barked too much that the thieves got nervous and ran away taking only a very old guitar (which don't have much second-hand price). At night their master release them and they patrol the whole church compound, digging holes here and there and marking their territory (how? :-P).
So next time when you see Blackie, remember to pat him. If he barks at you, it means that you need to spend more time making friends with him (talk to him nicely)!
