    DefaultSeamus, my problem solver : -)

    Sometimes Seamus is scary smart. Like Paddy was. He's my problem solver.

    For the past two weeks Flynn and the beagles have been testing my border collie and my Lhasa at breakfast. They'll gobble their own food down then run into the room where Rusty and Scamp are trying to eat and charge the food bowls. I starting guarding against this, but Rusty remained wary. So I began holding his bowl while he eats.

    A couple of days into this routine Seamus' overhead lightbulb went on. He started positioning himself between the two dogs and any rude intruders. If Flynn gets too close, Seamus kind of slams his flank against Flynn's head effectively keeping him at bay. If Dar gets too close, Shea lowers his head and gives a low "get outta here" bark. He noses Meg away if she gets bold.

    The flank-to-head maneuver just slays me, though! What a guy!

    Aw, this makes me think of my Seamus. We used to call him the Sheriff. If Robert and Mickey were playing bitey face and getting loud about it, Seamus would get up and saunter into whatever room it was going on in and stand there, look at them and give one deep, low "woof". That would end it. As soon as we would see him heading to the trouble makers we would say "here comes the sheriff". It must be in the name.

    Seamus, you are the only one worthy of filling Paddy's shoes.
