Listen to your beagle

As I've said before, I asked for Lulu so that I could have a watchdog.

Well, today Lulu may have served her purpose -- but I wasn't interested in paying attention.

This morning, at some point while I was asleep, I heard Lulu howl. I instantly woke up, but only to tell Lulu to go away. It was light out, so I just assumed she was barking at squirrels, like so many other times.

She may have been barking at burglars.

There was a break-in in my building. First floor, in an apartment caddycorner to mine in the back of the building. Same MO as my break-in -- broke the windows, carried electronics and jewelry out of the house through the front door.

Did Lulu see them? I don't know. It's entirely possible though. And I sort of feel that, because I was too lazy to want to check out what she was seeing, I missed something important. I could have helped catch the people who robbed my neighbor's apartment, maybe even the people who robbed mine.

So, I learned my lesson -- next time, pay attention.
