Good Herd Guardian Dog

Spot is our farm dog and the alpacas are his herd to guard.

Spot usually does a great job of knowing what is a threat and what isn't.  Our kittens are not a threat in his book:

Most of the time he completely ignores them:

But it does seem like fireworks are a huge threat to his herd, he barks every time he hears one.  Since they are similar to the sound of a gun shot, I can't blame it.  But it sure does make holiday time interesting when he barks at every single one.
