I knew it had to happen. They had to meet. This morning when I let the chicks in the run, my two corgis were doing their doggie thing, seeing who'd been there and rolling in unspeakable things to change their perfume. I slipped out of the run, locked the door and stood by and waited. Soon the littlest corgi, Bits had spotted them. Mina was quick to follow suit. They stood side by side with their noses stuck through the chain link. If Bits had a tail it would have been wagged off. The excitement was too much for her and she huffed and pawed the fence. Everyone ran inside except my roo, Locke. He actually came toward them. I was suprised since he's only 7 weeks old. I brought the dogs back inside since they were both running back and forth, the herding instinct too much for them. This afternoons outing was much like this morning. Dog's memories are pretty good when it involves something that interests them. As soon as Bits approached the run, Locke went into action. He lowered his stance and charged the fence. I was quite shocked to see him do this. Soon the girls realized they were pretty safe and began coming out of the coop and getting closer to the dogs. Locke was at the ready to intercede if anything got dicey. Bits and Mina are both going to have their noses pecked if they don't soon learn chicken etiquette. I didn't want a roo but now I don't know what to do. He's quite the character and protector. I just hope he's mute.
