A dog is best friend in home safety, too

The Tweet:
Best, oldest & truest warning alarm and protector from bad guys — a good watchdog!

Beyond the Tweet:
This is our latest addition to the family.

Sure, she’ll take another hour or more a day to feed, walk, train, clean up after, and referee between her and the cats, but I was taught animal ownership is a privilege, not a hobby.

Plus, she can act as a four-legged alarm who will protect us with ferocity. Another bonus? Walking a dog can get you in shape!

What a fabulous pup! Such an intelligent face! She’s a little German Shepherd, no? And what else in the mix?

Hi Betsy,
She has some striking lines, yes, and smart as a whip. The only verifiable markings look to be blue heeler, but the rest is unknown.

Hi Lori .. Heinz 57 – but quite pretty! How lovely – new pups are fun, dogs are so caring and so pleased to be with you .. enjoy her .. and I suspect the cat will win out!? Enjoy the rest of the week and weekend .. with the extra exercise automatically built in now .. have fun! Hilary

Awh, what a sweetie! So this is who you were talking about on Twitter. I just wanna give her a big hug. Adorable.

Hi Hilary,
One cat is certainly the Alpha pet, but the other cat and dog are still working out their rank.

Hi Davina,
She is hug-able and adorable! Smart about everything, but the concept of fetching an item. That will take awhile.
