The dogs are settling in and are very comfortable here. It seems like we have had them for a long time, but it has only been a few weeks. We were not sure if it was wise to get two at once, but it has worked out very well.
They sleep together.
They play together.
And generally just keep each other company.
They did have a little issue with their new house and pen.
No, that is not late snowstorm. The dogs got bored in their pen – though they are only in it at night – and decided to shred their new bed which was inside their house. I guess they will be sleeping on the hard floor instead of the soft, cozy bed.
We were not sure what to expect with the dogs being around the chickens. They really don’t seem too interested most of the time. And, speaking of the chickens, they are doing well and getting very big.
Bernadette, the “exotic” chick (not the ugly one as Nick calls her) is even looking better with feathers on now.
She did go through a bit of an awkward phase as her feathers were coming in.
Kind of reminds you of a teen going through puberty doesn’t it? Poor Bernadette, she is a bit of a late bloomer compared to the others.
Now that she has feathers she looks much better. As far as we can tell, she is Bernadette not Bernard – but time will tell.
With the nice warm weather, we have let the chickens out into their yard. The dogs watch them for a while, then go take a nap.
