Dogs are very social and protective of their family. My parents had a collie dog named Susie, who was very protective of me. I never feared walking in the ravine near my back yard when she was with me as she would protect me against any predators.
One day a friend of mine named Peter was angry at me and decided to push me in front of Susie. Well that was a big mistake on his part, as she quickly reacted to the threat, and promptly bit his shoulder. I felt bad that he got bitten, but at the same time was proud of my collie dog as she protected me.
She’s been gone along time, but I still have good memories of her and will never forget her.
