Some folks have huge, fierce dogs to guard their homes. However, mine are just slightly smaller! The one at the door is about 15 lbs but in her heart, she is a mighty Great Dane guarding the castle door. Ready to sound the alarm even if it is just a neighbors cat or a falling leaf. Alas, it’s a good thing there are no dragons at the castle door or they would be terrified by my 2 fierce dogs!
