    My precious, darling, Akela, loves all the little animals.


    Well, at least he did until he was sprayed by a skunk.
    The next night, we went walking, and I heard Aekla growling and chasing something in the corn field. Oh no, not another tomato bath! When I called him, he came bounding across the creek with this in his mouth. Mama's boy had not a scratch on him, but this coon is dead:


    Good boy, Akela! [​IMG]

    Give him an extra treat. A dog who can single handedly dispatch a coon is a gem.

    Beautiful dog! I, too, was afraid that this thread would be about a lap dog killing chickens, which is what our nine pound lap dog did. We haven't had any problems with our German Shepherd and Pit Bull...

    that dogs knows that the ducks and chickens are part of the pack...He's letting them eat out of his bowl! Most dogs wouldn't do that.

    What a great dog! [​IMG]

    Hopefully they were just being sarcastic..... [​IMG] I have a mini poodle and a mastiff/pit and I would way sooner trust the pit with my chickens. My poodle is horrible with the birds despite constant socialization since she was a puppy, she has pulled tail feathers from nearly all my birds at one point or another. I got chickens when my pitX was already 5-6 years old and he lets them walk all over them. Never have even seen him look twice at one....
