||Rusty lay awake during the warm
summer nights designing a way to cover Tyler's dog deck.
He knew that without a roof it would be a cold, wet, unusable place.
But with the right roof Tyler could enjoy it all winter.
Inside Rusty's mind he built wooden supports, laying a PVC pipe
frame over it to hold the waterproof tarp he would buy.
Then one day it was time to go to work and build it.
||Tyler was proud that Rusty was a
world famous designer, architect and award winning engineer.
"Arf lucky me!" Tyler thought. He knew Rusty would build a
protective roof over his dog deck to keep it dry for his enjoyment
all winter long.
||Tyler helped Rusty build the deck
When Rusty pushed 10 foot long 2x4's over the fence Tyler

||As Rusty worked late into the night to
finish the deck roof Bobcat came to watch.
Bobcat stayed up in the almond tree out of reach from the fierce
||Bobcat enjoyed staring at Tyler
from a safe vantage point.
At the right moment he would leap to the ground, sprint across the
yard and dart up the cat exit ramp. It was a game called "Dog can't
||Suddenly the game was on!
Bobcat darted up the ramp and out the cat exit.
Tyler chased him in vain.
Poor Tyler had lost another round of "Dog can't catch me!"
||Tyler was frustrated and a bit
despondent because he lost another cat chase. He had a hard time
understanding how some tiny furry ball could be the boss of him.
But it was true, cats were pack leaders.
Tyler was confused in his brain because Rusty always said "No
