first trip to the field with alex was a success. we camped,
just alex and i. if she weren't such an outstanding watch
dog i'm not sure i would have had the courage for solo
camping so close to the AZ/MX border.
as it were, i didn't worry at all. we slept in
the back of the truck (camper shell) and alex woke every
couple hours. very quietly she would sit up and
look out the windows for about 10 minutes, then settle
back to sleep. never a false growl or bark, she was
confident and brave. she knew exactly how to do her job.
