Dam is the kind matriarch of the pack. She is a 70 lb beauty with an amazing intelligence that I like to describe as a "freaky human intelligence".
When Dam wants to come back in the house she simply opens the door herself. When I was pregnant with my 5th child (she was pregnant with her 5th litter) towards the end of my pregnancy she wouldn't let any of the other dogs near me.
It really was a totally unnecessary precaution, as all of our dogs are very loving & devoted, but with nothing more than a dirty look she would keep the other dogs at least 15 feet away from me at all times.
She is a great fetcher & very eager to please. She is a perfect family dog. She stayed by my side constantly -- apparently guarding me in my delicate condition!
