Some moments sum up the family dogs in a nutshell.
It is morning. I go downstairs, open the stairgate and let the dogs out. As they come back in they assume their positions.
Teddy goes upstairs, greets The Boy and takes up his position on the stairs to guard the family.
Buddy goes upstairs and surgically attaches himself to The Old Git.
Buzz stays downstairs on his own to keep an eye on the breakfast toast crusts.
