Not an Ordinary Dog

Harley and Fluffy

Everyone thinks that their dog is special, and I am no different.  Our dog, Harley,  happily coexists with my backyard flock.   This is pretty amazing considering that he is a Cairn and should be fascinated with vermin, squirrels, chipmunks, mice and the like.   I don’t think that hens darting around the yard is much of a leap of instinct, but somehow he has managed to understand my ladies are off-limits.    This is even more of an amazing feat when you realize that Harley did not grow up with chickens or me.   We adopted him at about age four from a local shelter, and it was immediately obvious to us he was a townie.   Yet in just six months he has settled into the country life.  He is no ordinary dog.
