He couldn't understand what the Man and the Boy saw in the Woman and the Girls. As far as he could tell, they never did anything interesting, and failed to understand the compliment of a dead snake presented at their feet and why all cats must be chased on sight.

When the Man was away, he slept with his big body across the front door to guard everyone from harm.
