Thanks Kilz she is and we love her. She's the most affectionate and eager to please dog I've ever had and the most naturally protective too. It's like she already knows what her job is ( I guess they call that instinct). She's the girls dog. She sleeps with them. No other adults or dogs touch my kids when she's around. In theory I love that and so far she is great with other kids but, I'm watching closely and am very worried about where she is going to see the line between friendly kid and threatening adult.
