We have the best guard dog ever! But she is getting up there in age. So on cold nights, she is invited into. Eventually we will have to replace her. But I don't know where we are going to get a dog that does her job as good as she does.

What an adorable picture! I don't have a guard dog; I have a guard cat, who runs in the other direction if there's a problem!
