The lion roar.

by Mary
(Gaspe coast, Qc)

Spring is in the air. The wildlife is stirring and coming out of hibernation. Our fluffy Great Pyr wonder dog Gabriel is 7 months old now, and fearless in his best guardian puppy behaviour. He's our Patches' best back-up bouncer (not to make a pun).

There seems to be a lot more danger out there than we are aware of. We live in the country where its VERY quiet at night, and are quite used to the 4-legged variety wildlife rummaging in the dark quite close to the house. The 2-legged variety, racing thru the fields in high spirits on snowmobiles in the wee hours a sudden and rude awakening...or, maybe it was the lion roar response by the pup that made us jump!?

What an astonishing sound!! Both dogs scrambled down the stairs, Patches barking his deep big-dog warning with Gabriel hot on his heels, as echo. It was an impressive display! Both dogs puffed up and ready to do whatever it took to keep harm at bay!

Even with us all now up and fully awake, their vigilance did not waver until the racket outside faded into silence once more. Soothed the boys and went back up the stairs to our bed. Patches refused to come up and laid at the bottom. Our intrepid pup lay down on the landing at the top of the stairs. We were well guarded! And even though we knew the snowmobile revelers well and weren't for 1 minute threatened, our 2 boys acted true to their heritage and their love for us. Lots of hugs and praise. Job well done.

always well protected
by: Kim

Our 7-month old Pry Harley keeps us well protected from all the dangers of Californian suburbia. Our next door neighbor has an automatic pool cleaner that wiggles around the bottom and sides of his pool. When the cleaner gets up the wall and begins to creep out of the water it makes a sound like you would imagine a rabid squid might make. Harley is quite diligent in his daily effort to make sure that whatever is making that noise does not come over the fence. When the danger is over, he goes back to faithfully guarding the coach from all enemies. Such a loyal breed!
