    Ahh... Hardy Cove. "Tis nice to be away from all of the people who take things too far", thought Carl, as he wiped the sweat from his brow. Again. He looked up from the canoe he was weaving from palm fronds and saw a dog he had never seen before. It was brown and white with a smattering of black on his butt. Carl said, "I shall call you..."

    ....Booger." As soon as Carl uttered the name, Booger looked up and smiled. Carl knew he had chosen the correct moniker for this dog. He called the dog to his side and continued to weave a canoe. He noticed a faint odor eminating from Booger but didn't give it much thought. He was just happy to have found someone.....

    The sticky icky. He had no doubt tangled with a skunk. Carl wondered if perhaps Booger had won that scuffle and if so, where the skunk was now. It had been a while since Carl had eaten anything and he started to wonder if....

    ... some cheese, milk, left over spaghetti and a half pound of hamburger, slightly brown with age. He thought to himself, " I bet I'm not the only one hungry, I wonder what Booger likes to eat?" No sooner had he thought that thought when a voice he had never heard before said, in his head, "hamburger. booger lubs him some hamburger." Carl looked around the kitchen, who had said that?? But there was noone there except for Booger, who was staring at Carl with great intent. Carl shivered. "Okay, now that is wild. Time for some food."
    Again, the voice in his head responded, "iz about time, booger about ready to start chewing own left foot."
    Carl stared at Booger and approached him carefully. "Did you say something, boy?"

    Booger looked at Carl and...

    ..Booger's mouth moving in a strange way, like he was eating peanut butter or something. Knowing there was no peanut butter in the house due to the salmonella outbreak, Carl looked closer. Much to his dismay,.......

    He realized that the dog was chewing on a piece of the skunk from his previous scuffle. Carl went back to the fridge and pulled out the browning meat. When he peeled back the lid of the tupperware he was overwhelmed with the .....

    ...a mystery bowl, way in the back, behind the empty YooHoo carton. It was an oddly shaped bowl, kind of triangular and right away Carl knew something was amiss. He couldn't recall seeing this bowl before. It was covered with a strange material, too. Not plastic wrap and not aluminum foil but a strange hybrid of the two. The hairs on his arms stood up as Booger nosed him aside and stuck his head in the fridge, licking the outside of the strange bowl. Carl wondered to himself......

    and not.....

    ...that crazy-ass neighbor lady. Perhaps the word "lady" was a stretch as she would borrow Carl's razor for facial forest maintenance. Anyhow, Carl turned around, and all he could see was a monkey tail. What on earth...? Monkeys aren't endemic to Hardy Cove, so it had to be something else. Like a mongoose. Just as Carl reached around to remove the mongoose, the phone rang. He grabbed the furry little fella and flung him across the room, nearly clipping Booger. He wiped his hands and walked to the phone.
    "A-hoy-hoy, Carl Feinsteinenberger speaking."
    "Carl, this is..."

    As Carl disposed of the nasty towels, Booger let out a soft "woof". Carl didn't pay him any mind and contined with his chore. Suddenly a noise blasted through his head, nearly knocking him to the floor.
    "I said WOOF, dammit". His head still ringing, Carl looked in Booger's direction. The dog was sitting, staring directly at Carl. Again, the hairs on Carl's arms stood straight up. He couldn't deny it, this dog was ......
