Sorry about your dog Tap. I do rescue work and have always had dogs - having to put a beloved companion down is always rough. Hopefully your DH will cone around. Lisa - they do currently go into the chicken coop most nights. A couple of nicer nights that we've had they will snuggle up with each other just outside of the coop. They are getting their own duck huts this summer. I'm working on an area around my pond that I can enclose (so every day is not like Easter trying to locate eggs, lol).
