Hi there, I was just outside hanging with my dog and three 2-month old chicks. My dog Kurn was minding his own business and gnawing on his bully stick when Yolanda my EE walked up to him and started pecking at his body. She then progressed to scratching him, though they looked like cute little kicks. She continued for another minute at which point Kurn had had enough and started growling and barking. Is this Yolanda's way of trying to exert dominance over Kurn? Or did she just want his bully stick? I thought it was pretty adorable, though being fully aware of Kurn's old grumpy ways, I had a hand on him the whole time. Any thoughts appreciated.
