My Geese Protecting Me From The Neighbor's Dog

I would like to share a special moment I had today with my geese: Mamma, Pappa and Jasper. I was at the end of the property talking to my neighbor when his dog came to inspect me and WOW - my geese came running and Jasper went after the dog!

Once Jasper felt comfortable with the dog's distance, all three of my "babies" got in front of me (all three at attention stance) and stood there with the wall they created between the dog and me until the dog left. This is just the same as they did with their goslings. I was sitting in a squatted position during this whole episode and was so amazed by it! When the dog left, I gave my babies luvins and praise - I'll use any excuse to kiss on them.
