Buddy has been waking me up the last two nights wanting to go outside at 3:30 am so last night he wakes me up I take him out & then back in. Patches still in my bed so not sleepy get on the computer DH wakes up goes to bathroom we have seperate bedrooms. DH opens my bedroom door Patches goes balstic barking & growling at him till he speakes to her. Buddy never said a word. Then last week sister-in -law was in town for my son's wedding she & her Mom came over knocks on the door Patches barks Buddy does not bark??? he is 16 months old. is he just letting Patches do all the work makes me wonder about him as a watchdog???
