The Sentry” tells the story of Bojan, who is ten years old when his father brings home a sentry dog named Kaiser. Before he sees the dog, Bojan is excited, hoping to find a best friend in Kaiser. However, the mastiff turns out to be very aggressive, scaring people in the neighborhood and even killing the other local dogs and cats he catches.
At the age of 11, when he comes home and the dog scares him, Bojan runs to the servants’ room, and takes Mrs. Senka’s pistol and threatens the dog. The pistol is empty, but the dog still reacts in fear at the sound of the empty guns. From that day onwards, Bojan teases the dog with his father’s pistols whenever he is alone.
