We are dog people. We have three. A Chihuahua, a Jack Russell and a German Shepard. The Jack Russell is a unique pet in the terrier world. She is a lap dog, totally controlled and very intuitive. I credit this to my wife "The Dog Whisperer" who is amazing with pets. The Chihuahua is old and losing her sight. The German Shepard turns 10 at Christmas, survived being hit by a car and is crippled but still a sweetie. Do I need any special advice about bringing chicks home, or just the obvious: "Don't let the dogs eat the chicks"?
