Big Brave Dog

I know I've mentioned before how terrifying the world at large is to my 153 pound mastiff. But today just took the cake. The maintenance man came to fix a light in my kitchen. Both dogs were standing at the back door watching him through the screen as he approached. My smaller, more aggressive dog barked several times, as a warning to the man and to us. My bigger dog, barked once, "WOOF!" then turned and fled into the recesses of the house. The maintenance man brought in a ladder, worked on the light in the ceiling, then realized he needed to go get somthing else from the shop. He left the ladder, and my scairdy dog has stood in the door and whined pitifully at it like he's asking it nicely to please, just leave.

This is Rigger the lap dog.
