Reclaiming Her Territory

Brittney Lohmiller/The Herald
Every year when Christmas comes around, Shortie, a 10-year-old Japanese chin, loses her favorite spot in Betty Meador and Jeff Lindauer’s home in Jasper to the Christmas tree. “She’s a 5-pound dog that dominates a 96-inch-long couch,” Lindauer said. “That’s her dominion and where she’s happiest. It’s like she’s been deprived of a window her whole life and she ain’t giving it up now.” Shortie spent Thursday evening watching cars go by from the front window.
