AR500 Body Armor and the Shih Tzu


A photo posted by ArmsVault (@armsvault) on

I caught this image today and thought it was funny.  Our Shih Tzu, Maggie, heard a noise outside that scared here. What did she do?… Ran straight for the body armor, of course! She may not be the bravest dog on the block, but at least she has enough sense to appreciate the value of having body armor!
