    I know dogs are often the bad guys when it comes to chickens, but I have a happy dog story! I have two dogs and we are currently puppy sitting for my sister's Cavapoo, Huck. Yesterday I was feeding my kids lunch when all of a sudden Huck looked out the window and started barking like crazy. I went to investigate and saw a commotion in the chicken run - and then my heart stopped when I saw an ENORMOUS hawk sitting on top of the run. I immediately let all three dogs out and they chased it away. My run is pretty secure and I don't know if it would have found a way in, but I'm glad he didn't have much time to figure it out. And glad Huck was here!

    So true! My sister hates the idea of "designer breeds" so she always calls him a mutt when people ask. She wanted a non-shedding dog though. He is the sweetest pup, I want one now!
