It pays to be alert. I pride myself on my second to second, lightening fast responses. How do I do it? I’ll let you in on a little secret. I never take my eye off the ball. Not even for a moment. My concentration is second to none. I am male, hear me roar.
My focus never wavers. I am ready to pounce on any intruder, raise the alarm if anything unusual happens or someone falls down a well and needs rescuing, join any activity, run through the long grass, find missing blind orphans, chase my tail, put birds to flight, put the fear of God into the cat and any number of other good dog works.
