Have you ever seen three Irish wolfhounds and a greyhound suddenly shift to territorial mode? You should… it’s impressive.
It was even funnier because I’ve been marathon-watching Supernatural and the first thing I thought when we all went outside was “I wouldn’t want to be any monster with bad intentions in this yard tonight.”
(update: turns out there’s either a momma possum or a really masculine sounding cat in an old shed in the yard next door. I just hope it stays over there)

It’s more that she prefers not to suffer fools. “Some people in other parts of the industry, they introduce themselves as, like, ‘vice president,’ with all of these certifications,” she says, amused. “I couldn’t give a shit.
