Minnie loves to just sit on our laps and be loved, or take naps with us on the leather couch. She also loves to run around outside and bark at all the woodland critters, telling them to stay away. Unfortunately, she also likes to eat animal poop! But she is good hunter. Last summer she killed 4 young groundhogs. But usually, the chipmunks and squirrels are too fast for her, as they can run up trees. But she doesn't give up, she keeps trying, in the hopes that someday, she will catch her prey.
She also protects us. She protected me against a big, hyper dog, growling and barking at it to stop. She protected my mom against a woodchuck, wrestling with it until my mom was able to kill it with a few good whacks from a shovel. And she protected her doggy cousin from a big, scary dog that tried to attack her, by jumping on it and trying to stop it. For her troubles, she got a few bites, but she was OK.
I love this dog. I look forward to seeing her when I come over. She always gets so exicted. How could anyone not love that cute little face? I am so glad mom and dad asopted her. She is just what we needed. And she needed us too.
