|Maya "the predator".|
Even though this was a false alarm I think her protective instincts are kicking in and she is starting to demonstrate signs of maturing mentally. In areas where there is a heavy predator load, livestock guardians often work in pairs or more, with one dog staying with the herd or flock, and the other dog going out to deter the predator. Otherwise, one dog can be overworked and overstressed trying to defend their territory. Since our "predator" today turned out to be the cat I think Heidi will be finde handling both roles.
