My Jack is the self appointed keeper of my pack. I mean, I asked him to do so, but never trained him to do it!
Nonetheless, the weather was crazy nice today, so I took a chance. Kept a watchful eye on my kitten, who has never been allowed out of doors... But, I am only human, and lost track after a couple hours. Well, the kitten apparently jumped the fence, but was only barely outside it when Jack barked an alert and came back inside the kitchen to make sure I knew something needed my attention, stat! Good dog!!!
And then, a couple hours later, I let both dogs ride along to the local store. The girls who work there adore Jack, but had never met my Weimaraner. So both dogs got lots of cookies and we loaded up and headed home. And about a block from the house, I did what I always do with Jack, I opened the truck door and let him race me home. But this time, I also let the Weim out to race, as well. I've owned her forever, and have no doubt she will follow me home. But I worried a little!
Jack (my GSD always beats me home!) was business as usual, I pulled in, and Jack was wagging and waiting, lol! But no Lillian. I gave Jack the hand signal for "Find it!" Said "Lillian!" My heart raced when he looked at me twice, then ran straight away! across the street... But calmed so easily when he led her running into the garage.... In under a minute!! Good boy, Jack! Best. Dog. Ever.
