A tale of two very different dog temperaments from the Horse You Came In On:
This morning when I left my dogs one was asleep in the late winter sunshine in the kennel while the other was barking vigorously at anything that moved. Guess which was which? Evidently Dolly not only has trust in me, but trust in her little friend that allows her to sleep without fear of interruption. Maggie on the other hand, spends her day safe in the knowledge that every car or truck she has ever warned off has prudently kept going, and I am sure this fills her with self-esteem.
