I had a person come to my house this morning with a clip board taking a survey. All of the dogs barked except for Axel. The person left because Im really not in any position to answer questions. Well since the dogs were all riled up I decided to put them out. Thats when my big protective dobe decided to bark at the birds. Big scary robins. Perfect strangers dont warrant a bark but if you have feathers watch out lol.

Actually, one of the few people Fancy has disliked in her life was a salesman that came to the door.

Tess, Do you want me to sent Tony over to teach Axel how to look viscious?  Tony has always been such a friendly guy, but a couple of weeks ago a "creep guy" came to the house on a Sunday afternoon, supposedly "checking occupancy for  my bank"  Frankly, my bank wouldn't care where I live.  Tony acted like Cujo, up on his toes, all of his hair standing on end, barking and growling.  We have all sliding glass doors so I stood in the door way, with Tony on one side of the glass and creepy guy on the other. I'm sure he was taking his cue from me.  I really freaked out.  I'm sure if  you needed him Axel would be there for you too.  Oh, and everyone knows how dangerous those darned robins are.  lol

Ben surprised me this past thursday when the insurance adjuster came back out and we got into a heated discussion about why we took the walls down in the bathroom, ben was sleeping at the front door and he lifted up on his shoulders when I changed my tone of voice and got a bit louder; but when SHE got louder Ben immediately sat straight up and looked from me to her and back to me to her several times, and all I did was shake my head "no" and he put his ears back and assessed whether or not he needed to help mom. But he minded perfectly and never even let out a grumble but you could tell just a slight nod yes and he would have gotten up and walked by her and sat next to me as a warning.....then the crazy woman decided to lean over ben who was laying back down at the door and a I mean she was at a 90 degree angle hanging over his head saying oh is he afraid of me and continued to talk baby like talk to him and I could feel Ben's energy shift and could tell he didn't like this woman and now she was leaning over him and of course i couldn't make a fuss about "get away from the dog' cause then she would assume he was vicious so i just kept talking in a normal tone and then called Ben to me so she could leave, needless to say I was proud of my boy for wanting to help me if needed and super super proud of him for not grumbling at her in his face yacking at him even though I felt he really would like to have growled at her he didn't......thank god since it was the insurance company, not the person you want your bully breed dog to show protection skills on......good boy ben!!!!

lol ... I always feel safe with Jade, we walk a four mile loop every day. I'd like to think she would protect me if need be but then again the other day we were walking by a house where there was a birthday. They had balloons tied to the mailbox. All I will say is that I hope no bad guys were around because they would know that all they need to do is to come in with a bunch of helium baloons and she'd be running for the hills!! Either that or a vaccum! Yeesh!
