4-26-2009 "The Intruder In The Back Yard"

This morning at approximately 10am, Crispen noticed the intruder in the back yard. I quickly grabbed my camera to get a few pictures of the ensuing confrontation. He slowly and methodically prepared to attack.

Here you will see that he is in full stride and has successfully caught the enemy by surprise.

Just as Crispen thought he had the upper hand on the situation, the enemy performed a surprise counterattack.

Understandably, Crispen became enraged at the enemy. He found himself baffled by the audacity of this counterattack within the boarders of his territory. He questioned the unorthadox tactics of this barbaric enemy. Clearly, they did not follow the rules of engagement.

After taking a moment to collect his wits, his body language clearly shifted. He was now determined to rid his lands of this oppressive force. He knew that his people were counting on him to eliminate this threat. He quickly and efficiently began his fierce string of attacks...

After several minutes of continuous fighting, the intruding forces obviously had enough of Crispen's wrath, and all at once they retreated back to their underground tunnels. Crispen was hailed as the victorious defender of his territory, and he was showered with praise and adoration.

He has vowed to watch over the back yard and keep it safe from the mysterious watery invaders...
