When I was a kid, there was a TV show called Lobo. I'm not going to look it up because I don't want to taint the memory. So, this show was about a wolf, or maybe a wild dog, obviously named Lobo. I remember seeing some scenes, maybe even a couple episodes. Lobo snarled and bared his teeth quite a bit, and I was afraid of him.

It was because of Lobo, that I was afraid to go out at night. I didn't want my face chewed off or anything like that. Of course, I also had a nightlight in my room, and slept with the door half open so my dad could hear me in case Lobo came to get me.

Why was I afraid? Lobo was a big scary wolf/dog thing. Big ol' razor sharp teeth and all that. And the worst part of it was, the night was his territory. He owned it. Fact. There was a song that told me about it. I didn't understand most of the song, but the part I did understand was when she sang, "Because the night belongs to Lobo", and that was all I needed to know.

I think lobo is the Spanish word for wolf! This story made me grin, a lot.
