I'd like to properly introduce you to Teddy, the designated guardian of October Farm.
Teddy is a Chow-Chow, a breed of dog once used to guard palaces in China. As you can see, old habits die hard.
Though cute, Chow-Chows are very territorial and suspicious of strangers. They are very affectionate to their family, however. Not to mention cute as all get-out.
At the conclusion of this little informal photo shoot, I thought I would lean in to give Teddy a kiss.
Chow-Chows also have the strongest jaw muscles of any other breed of dog. In other words, one only gets a picture like this through tremendous amounts of trust.
