White Dog was missing in watchdog action! Serenely painting in the back room, I did not see or hear Gordon at the front door nor did White Dog sound her "Some One's Here" alert. He called me from his cell to find me and I hurried to let him in; but there was still no barking welcome. Gordon came in and sat down. We chatted for a few minutes and then headed to the office to look at his rendering on the computer. As we got up to change rooms, White Dog crawled out from under the couch, looking like she was still half asleep, and belatedly sounded the alarm. Gordon sat down and gave the chagrined guard dog a belly rub. After a huge yawn, White Dog followed us into the office and sat protectively by my side still smarting from neglecting her duties.
