I have a 12 year old blue-merle Australian Shepherd, Toby. He was a rescue - I've had him since he was 3 mos old. He completely ignores the chickens.

Owen, 1 1/2 yr old mini Dachshund. He's Isabella and tan, and was my graduation gift to myself when I got my MBA. He's also a pain in the butt. I call him "ADD Dog" or "Special K", depending on what he's getting into.
Rudy Roo, 8 mo old mini Dachshund. He's a chocolate-based red, so he has a deeper red coat and green eyes, of all things.. He was a "destiny dog". Our beloved red mini Dachshund, PeeWee, passed away 7/3/10. Two months later, with no intention of getting a new dog, I came across a photo of Rudy Roo on a sale ad in the grocery store window. When my 8 year old son saw his birth date was 7/3/10, he declared that "PeeWee left a little bit of himself in Rudy and it was his way of helping us to not be so sad". So, a new member joined our family. It's a little odd every now and then, as he shows several of PeeWee's unique mannerisms from time to time.
Owen has a STRONG prey drive - couple that with Dachshund stubborness and I have a chicken problem. Sadly enough, he has gotten a couple chickens before I could stop him so must now be watched very closely. Rudy Roo merely thinks the chickens are entertaining, but no biggy. He's much rather be laying on his back in the grass getting a belly rub than chasing smelly chickens.
