Pretty pups and I love speckled chickens! They are gorgeous.

Thanks for the coffee. Carson is in my lap, butt under my armpit, head on my ankle on the recliner footrest. He’s trying so hard to be a lap puppy but he’s getting a little big. LOL At Christmas he was 67 pounds, must be 70-75 now.

Thank you. She is adorable. And at 13 werkswshe is the same size as Belle at 8ish mos! They both are high energy and have been having a blast with each other all morning. Both are passed out at the foot of the bed currently. Blessed peace.... For the moment.

I must be some kind of crazy. Three boys and two high strung dogs, a husband and all our farm critters plus a full time job! Yep. I'm nuts. Totally bonkers!

I have always loved the husky/malamute dogs and their markings. Had a friend that bred them. But one thing, please be advised as per the friend that bred and raised them for over 30 years.....they are very often NOT poultry friendly. It seems to be bred into them to kill chickens. NOT SAYING this will automatically happen. Just want you to be extra careful with your birds, and make sure you are around with them interacting. I would hate for something to happen to the birds, then have you learn that they have some tendencies, and say you wished someone had told you.

I have had German Shepards and crosses for years. Most were all very tolerant and disinterested in the poultry. One I got would ignore the birds when I was around after the first few lessons and scoldings to not chase them. She would lay there and the birds would be out and she would ignore them. About 6 months later, had a bird get killed. Then a few days later, another. Finally, I parked up the road on an afternoon at the time I would normally go to work and snuck back down through the field to spy. I caught her just laying around, then all of a sudden, would jump up and grab one and kill it. She was a sneak killer and we parted ways not long after that. I had never had one do that sort of thing so wasn't looking for it but had come up with no other solution. So I am only trying to give you a "heads up" to watch the husky as she grows.
