No it was not.  Guard Dog and Gate Keeper are both figures of speech. 
It means he is over protective.  Please stop putting
words in my mouth, especially after I can clarified them to
an extreme extent

Would a "Peanut Lab" describe that quality?  I can't wait
for folks to come out and tell me I am calling him a dog again.

For those of your that do not love dogs, as we Yanks do,
when JJ said if he was a dog, he'd be a Peanutbutter Lab,
he just describes himself as a sweet and loving spirit,
not a  actual dog.  That is why I teased him back about
being a Junkyard dog (look it up).  Again, not calling
him an actual dog.

And after the great extent I have gone to clarify what I
meant, if you or anyone else still thinks I called him an actual dog 
(canine), then it is on you and not me.

An keep the riff-raff (me) at bay and not bother the
developers with trivial matters.  You have to argue
with him to get things past him.
