We have a ten year old doxie who has been going nuts with the brooder in the house and now the girls are outside in their run where she can see them. The first day we put them out we sprayed her with the hose pretty good and she stayed behind us and looked to us for approval to even got near the run. Most days she's pretty OCD about them when we're in the yard doing other things. This morning was the first morning after their first night in the coop. We decided to let them free range a bit to get a little wing and leg exercise. I thought I had closed the door to the house with her in it but the next thing you know there's a ruckus and I see tail fluff flying. Luckily my boyfriend was there and grabbed her by the scruff of the next and put her back in the house. The girls seem okay... no injuries, no blood, just a little more alert than before. It really sucks that they can't co-mingle. I'm guessing we'll just need to put her in her kennel in the house when we decide to free range so that accidents like that don't happen again. She's pretty sneaky but we were lucky this time!
