For about three days my chickens have found a new way into my dog kennel. Their run is right beside my chicken run. My yellow lab I trusted completely she is so gentle and lazy. I also have a blood hound though a rescue I've had for a year. 11 months old when I got her. Any way that's the one I worried about. I was outside for the first time when they breached the fence Dixie that's the blood hound ran towards them. I yelled NO the first command I teach all my pets not just dogs. Well to my amazement she stopped looked at them walked over about three feet away again I said No she stopped and smelled turned and walked away. I was like WOW better get that fence fixed. I found a hole fixed it but the next day it happened again. I came outside and they were in the kennel and Dixie was chasing them. I yelled Dixie no she stopped and walked away. I was amazed. Found another hole fixed it and thought hope that's it. Then today I was outside visiting with a friend and 4 chickens flew over the 6 ft fence. My buddy said your chickens just got in with your dog. I looked over and Dixie was still setting down. Then one of the chickens walked boldly up to Dixie and started scratching the ground right in front of her. She never moved. I said to my friend how cool is that. He said I can't believe her being a blood hound she didn't eat that chicken. I said me ether so I left the chickens in there for about a half hour and then got them out. I think shes going to be all right. She is fed well though a three pound coffee can of dog food and a quarter to a half can sweet 16 I feed sweet 16 to everything even the cats. I believe it keeps them really healthy. Anyway Dixie was skin and bones when I got her and now her ribs don't show and she has a nice waste line. Just a beautiful dog. Hope this behavior continues. All I can say is WOW. Sky the lab slept threw the whole thing till I walked in to get the chickens then out she came looked around as if to say again jeez. Man is she lazy can't even get her to fetch a ball. Tried and tried to teach her to but when she came to me and took my hand walked me to the ball and sat down I new she was smart and was not going to do anything she did not want to. Good dog just lazy don't even wake up when I get home from work. I go make sure she is ok by hollering her name sometimes 2 or 3 times before she raises her head looks at me like what ya that's what I thought and goes back to sleep while Dixie and me play fetch. The dog kennel is 24 x 50 ft.
