Blue is the pack “yard guard”. The moment we open the back door to the deck, she lets out a bark as she runs to the far fence to fend off any possible intruders. That could be intruding leaves, wind, neighbor dogs, feral cats o of course, humans.
She will sit under the bushes at the fence line all afternoon if she could and you can bet that she will alert us to any movement in the yard, no matter the amount. Now that the puppies are out enjoying the backyard, she has taken her role in more seriously – She’s a great aunt to our pups!
