There was a time when Shelby would simply watch as someone else's flea-covered cat calmly walked in through the tiny doggie door, walked over to Shelby's food and water bowl, refreshed herself, and then walked back out the doggie door.
Mind you, when any human walked by our front door, posing no threat whatsoever, Shelby would run over and back and growl something fierce.
So imagine our surprise when Shelby was barking by the doggie door this afternoon. Sure enough, there was a cat in the back yard. It took a little prompting, but Shelby did venture outside to scare off the feline.
I guess our previous laughs about her reluctance to protect her domain paid off.
