Your always very insightful Hanne. Your right that he feels his job is to protect Finnie and of course I could park further away. I've never noticed if he does it when he's alone in the car but he does do it at home, he rushes the front fence whenever he even so much as hears a noise. Of course crating them in the car is an option but I like them to have freedom sometimes. Of course, like I said I don't have to worry about anyone stealing them when he's in his protection mode...that's always a good thing!
