Have you heard of that thing where dogs become protective over pregnant or sick owners? . Well I am neither but I am one of the true daily constants in my small family. . Dad sometimes leaves before they are up, he travels for work, has stag weekends or trips for sports events. . Mum? Nah... always there at the beginning and end of the day BUT last year I went away for 10 days to meet my nephew in Australia 🇦🇺 . When I got back Maggie was so territorial over me.. she barked at people on the street and wouldn’t even go past people on hikes.. she was often too scared to greet newcomers?! . It taken a year but she is finally back to normal.. anyone else had that happen? It didn’t come back did it?!
