EDITOR'S REVIEW: Noir is a bit of a mystery. Few people ever seem to get to spend more than a few hours with her. She is known for her aloof behavior and evasiveness, often avoiding people for as long as she can. But when she needs something, she knows how to play the role of man's best friend like no other. When she works her charms, Noir will have you wishing she was your dog. But by the time you decide to keep her, she's gone.

NOIR ENCOUNTER, MARCH 28, 2008
Posted by RandyF [Read other reviews by RandyF]
WAS MINDING OWN BUSINESS ON MARCH 28, 2008, WHEN NOIR SHOWED UP AND TURNED WORLD UPSIDE-DOWN. INCIDENT WENT AS FOLLOWS:
12:28PM - RETURN TO GARAGE AFTER HELPING LOAD COUSIN LEVI'S WAGON WITH MERCHANDISE.
12:29PM - WIPE SWEAT OFF BROW WITH RAG
12:30PM - SEE DOG WALK IN OPEN GARAGE.
12:30PM - HOLLER "GO ON, GET!" AT TRESPASSING DOG.
12:31PM - DOG LOOKS AT ME WITH EYES THAT DON'T QUIT. SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY THE LIGHT BROKE THROUGH THE OPEN DOOR AND MADE HER SHINE LIKE AN ANGEL IN THE DARK OF THE GARAGE. SAID TO HER "HELL, WHAT HAVE YOU GONE AND MADE ME DO?"
12:32PM - POURED SOME WATER AND GOT PIECE OF STEAK.
12:33PM - GIRL TURNS ON THE WATERWORKS. DROOL DOWN TO THE FLOOR. ATE THAT STEAK UP LIKE IT WAS HER LAST MEAL.
12:35PM - EXAMINE DOG TAGS. READ "NOIR". NOTICE BITE MARKS ON HER BACK.
12:36PM - ASK "WHO DID THIS TO YOU?" SHE TURNS AWAY AND WHIMPERS IN FEAR.
12:45PM - HAVE UNCLE LEVI TREAT WOUNDS. MAKE LITTLE BED IN GARAGE FOR NOIR TO SLEEP ON.
SPENT ENTIRE DAY WITH NOIR, BUT COME EVENING, SHE VANISHED. NO IDEA WHERE SHE WENT. A MANGY DOG CAME BY THE NEXT MORNING. POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR HER. SHOT HIM DEAD. THINK IT WAS CLANDESTINE, PURPORTED ASSOCIATE OF VERMIN.
Question about Noir?

Is this the same dog that was involved with Vermin awhile back? If so, she probably got in way over her head. Vermin is absolutely insane. He's not a dog that lets things go. If you saw what happened to Scrapper, Rusty''s brother, you'd know he's one vicious fleabag. It takes an especially evil dog to make me feel sorry for Rusty.
Vermin's gang have been such a nuisance that I'm thinking of moving. Day after day they are out causing trouble and nobody seems able to stop them. I think they're all rabid.
Involved with Rusty??

As some of you know, I live next door to Rusty's owner. No, I still haven't been able to get talk to him about the state of his lawn or about Rusty's unusual behavior. I plan to keep trying. Anyway, the other day I was looking out my back window and saw Noir together with Rusty. There was another dog with them. I think it was Senator. I was very confused, as I assumed that Noir belonged to Vermin. If she is looking for protection from Rusty's gang, then this whole feud just moved to the next level.
This concerns me greatly. I do not want to be living on the frontlines of a war between Vermin and Rusty. If you ask me, both dogs are horrible and need to be put down. I am not letting my children play outside until this whole mess is settled.
A possible explanation?

I heard from a neighbor that Noir delivered a litter of puppies a few weeks ago, but most of them didn't make it. Someone in #barkwire mentioned that Vermin has been training new ward. Might be one of Noir's pups. If so, I can see why she'd be so upset. That pup has no chance if it's running with Vermin and his crew.
I can only hope someone rescues it before it grows up to be another pariah and menace to this community.
