So you’ve heard all about our zombie plan.
Jodi and I have been working for years to come up with as many Zombie Plans as we can. It’s impossible to cover all your bases as there are so many variables to consider when dealing with zombies. What type of zombies are we up against? Fast walkers? Slow walkers? Zombies that can walk through water or can they swim? Are they rotting zombies or the clean looking ones? Are they able to open doors or just moan and drool at you? Where is Patient Zero located and how much time do we have to gather supplies? The list goes on and on… One thing I know is included in all of our Zombie Plans – Felix and Kolchak.
Now, before I continue, I want to start by saying I love those dogs. They are fabulous little creatures with hearts of gold. Jodi has done a wonderful job raising them and I hope they are around for a very, very long time to come.
However…let’s divide this up by dog.
KOLCHAK – sweet little puggle. He’s well trained to listen to Jodi and responds very well to bribes. As long as we have a large supply of jerky treats he should be good to stay quiet and listen when he’s told. Gets a little too excited at the site of any living person, unsure of how he will react to a non-living person. Very good at running away at the sight of danger.

FELIX – *sigh* sweet, sweet Felix. Usually quiet, mild mannered dog, so long as Jodi is right by his side. The second she leaves, he is a hot mess. Barking, whining, frantically looking for her. And there is nothing you can do or say to simmer him down. As long as Jodi can keep nearby to him, he should be fine. Easy to control in low stress situations so on the days where there isn’t a horde of zombies chasing after us, he should do well. Loves people, all people, probably even the undead kind of people. If you are within his eyesight, he will want to be your friend. It’s adorable in a zombie-free world; suicidal in the Zombie Apocalypse world. This dog WILL approach the living dead with the full intention of being their new best friend. However, it will get us all eaten.

Now, both dogs have their advantages – they’re both all black, so going stealth at night won’t be a problem. They are both small and lightweight, so carrying them in instances where we have to “GET OUT FAST!” should be fine. When Jodi is around, they are well behaved. They are very VERY VERY spoiled. Jodi has a slight tendency to give them whatever they want. They are used to a relaxed, monotonous, easy way of life. If you have read any of her blog posts you will know exactly what I mean.
Felix is going to get us killed.
