My Happy pup is a protective little pup. If he thinks that we are in danger he will bark and rush around doing his best to protect us. I have seen the time that he thought we were in serious trouble and he did his level best to gather the courage to protect his family. But usually, if he thinks that a situation is too much for him, he will rush under a table or behind one of our legs and bark from there.

One day while watching this behavior I was inspired by how hard Happy was trying to be brave, even though I could see that he was nervous. I thought of how spunky he was to try to warn us about what he thought was a potential danger when I was certain that he would prefer to run and hide. And was inspired to write the following poem. I hope that you like it.
