It appears that Lou has found his place in the pack… he has become protective of the rest of us. Dave walked in today and Lou started barking at him. Dave didn’t pause in entering and in short order, Lou was begging to have Dave pet him, but he seemed pretty serious about it at the time.

I am going to have to try to parade as many people through here as possible in the next few weeks so that he gets used to people coming in. I really don’t want him to develop into one of those yappy little watchdogs that won’t let anyone near me without nipping at them. Littlefoot has taught him to bark at the neighbor dogs when they are in the backyard and he is probably just taking it to the next level… he’ll figure it out soon enough. If they come through the front door, they’re okay.
