I saw today on Facebook that exactly six years ago, I went to work and left Choppy out of her kennel for the first time. It wasn’t by choice; I went home for lunch and seven/eight-month old Choppy just refused to go back in the kennel when I needed to go back to work and I didn’t have the time or want to make the effort to get her back in it. Happily, I returned home to find nothing amiss; since then, she has remained more or less kennel-free.

Now, on to the present day – some pictures from Choppy’s week!

Here's  Choppy at work, not sleeping for once! Instead, she is keeping us safe from the scary Westie across the street.

For the effort at keeping us safe from the Westie terror, treats are expected.

Here's Choppy keeping our patio safe from the bunny menace. And other small, white dogs, which she feels are equally menacing as the Westie at work.

All that guarding makes a dog tired.
