Our dog Jase is a natural explorer and a protector of all within his kingdom. Nose in the air and tongue in the wind, he roams the boundaries of his domain hoping that someday he will be able to see what lies over the top of the hill just out of his reach. Our vigilant guardian protects us from all enemies, real and imaginary. This is what he does-most of the time. Although this is comforting for us, it is insanity for him. If only I could just run up, look over the top and then run back, all would be right with the world.
