I have a rat terrier mix, named Luna. When I first got my hamsters, I thought they'd be dead within weeks... and now she loves to get a "kiss" from the hamster on her cheek! And once he got loose... she found him for me, ALIVE AND UNHARMED! When I got the chickens.... boy, i thought, big mistake. For the first few weeks, Luna was weary of the chickens, barking and watching them closely. We didn't ever leave her alone with the chickens, because we thought she might hurt them. A few weeks later, I was out in the yard with the chickens, with no fence around them. Luna was on a leash. All of a sudden, a dog came running out of the woods, right for my "girls" (chickens!)! Luna took charge, chased the dog away and then came back to me wagging her tail, like "Did I do good, mom?" Now Luna LOVES the chickens... she can't wait to go "let the girls out" in the morning! Share your pictures and stories of your canines and feathered friends!
