He is very jeaous and possessive of me when we are at the park and will run Fanny off at times. A little chocolate lab came and sat on my feet last year and Eddie actually pushed him off with his nose! Not that the puppy cared, he got up and came sat on my feet again.

Last night, there was a black lab puppy (Bo), there, playing in and out of the water and having a great time. I was chatting with the owner and Fanny and Eddie were sniffing and checking Bo out and playing with him. Along comes this female Doberman and it got quite rough with Bo, Eddie ran over and pushed his way in between Bo and the dobe and with a growl told it to back off. Eddie protected Bo from the Doberman for about 5 minutes then the owner called the Doberman, Bo found another dog to play with and Eddie settled down in his usual spot, behind me......................never saw him protect a puppy before, must have reminded him of himself.............
