Mel the protector

Since we live on the edge of a natural area, we get all sorts of critters. Our trash is routinely rummaged through by raccoons, bunny rabbits scurry when we drive down the driveway at night, cardinals, finches, and squirrels come and feed at the bird feeder, you know - wildlife!

To this city girl it's pretty cool.

Anyway, we have an armadillo who's decided to live in our shed. He doesn't hurt anything, so we pretty much just leave him alone and marvel when he's out routing for bugs.

But Mel the Protector dog has decided that the armadillo presents all sorts of trouble, so he follows the poor guy around and barks at him. Here's a photo of Mel terrorizing the poor armadillo.
