    When I got home from work, we took the girls outside. It was myself, hubby, the pit and the cocker. We just kinda let all six animals do their own thing... making sure that the dogs didn't get too rough with the babies. Scooby (the pit) started smelling the babies and one of them kinda chased Sara (the cocker) away. Sara took off running and then started coming back to them. Then Scooby chased her off, playfully the first few times. I told hubby that I thought he was thinking that they were his chickens and was being protective of them. It was actually kinda funny, but then he aggresively went after Sara. So now while I appreciate that Scooby wants to take care of the babies, I have to make sure that he doesn't get too rough with his sister. I just couldn't believe that he wanted to protect the baby chicks. I thought it was kinda cool that he thought they were his.
