"What's that on his face?"
"He got into the eggshells."
Born of a feral, Speck was brought indoors to rescue him from his hobby: walking through wolfdog fences.
He soon showed us how helpful he could beŚlicking my shower curtain dry, verifying that toilets flush properly, bulldozing food bowls from the counter, dumping his water bowl for refilling, training us to put the toilet paper up (or else). He taste-tests our spinach straight from the bag, regularly checks water quality at faucets, and pulls our wayward hands to his head to make sure we never miss out on a petting.
