hot diggity dog

You know you trust your dog when your baby and doggy role together on the floor. Clay can literally climb all over him and the dog's reaction is to lick his face. And Sam is constantly trying to figure out why when the baby fussles that I pick him up, but when he fussles I kick him outside. Sam also seems to be a self proclaimed foot stool, always pushing under my feet.

Its a dog life. No respect, no responsibility. That may change when we live in the woods. I think I will train him to find the kids, herd the chickens and keep bears from getting to close for comfort. Too bad I cant train him to keep woodticks off himself. :)

anyways- have a good day!

That's funny! I was thinking the same thing. Dog + chickens = feathers everywhere!

It all depends what kind of dog you get. My labs would turn a chicken into a pile of feathers in a heartbeat, but a herding dog like a Border Collie or Austrailian Shepherd could easily be trained to herd both chickens and children. I have known some who did it without any training at all! Good luck with the new property!
