Aby-a-Day – 9 July: “Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero” (Medical Monday)

The last time we all went to the vet, we encountered a gorgeous German Shepherd in the lobby. He was so huge compared to Lorelai!

But Rory was her usual fearless self.

In fact, she barely seemed to notice him at all. “Dog? What dog?”

Alfred, on the other hand…

…did not like the looks of that enormous predator at all.

In fact, he put his body between the dog and Rory to protect her.

The dog had the good sense to look appropriately intimidated.

“Don’t worry, little sister. I won’t let this beast hurt you.” Not that Rory looks at all concerned.

The Shepherd was actually a well-trained tracking and guard dog, and he and his human volunteer with the canine unit at their local Hemvärnet battalion. Hemvärnet dogs are very disciplined, and he wouldn’t have hurt a kitten.

Freddy didn’t still didn’t trust him. The entire time we were there with that dog, he remained vigilant, protecting Rory from harm.

  1. That is so cool that Freddy was so protective! And even cooler that Rory didn’t care about the dog. My human has to serve as my protector because I don’t believe anyone or anything would harm me. So I’m cool with almost all dogs and even the grabbiest of kids.
