Dunno, not a chance I want to take with Patron. Since he thinks he's a Great Dane...he may goad them into making a grab for him.

How big is Patron? I would keep Patron on a leash when you take him outside.

He might weigh 2 pounds...soaking wet. We go out to a fenced area so he can run off steam from hanging out in the office.

No wonder you are worried about crows and hawks. Is he a full grown Great Dane like he think he is? The patients must just love him. I do and that is just a picture. I wish I could hold Teddy Bear. But he doesn't like it. Not even as a puppy.

Teddy Bear thinks he is on the force against wheels. Baby carriages, cars, bikes, etc. It is his job to rid the world of wheels. I keep telling him he is not a full grown standard poodle. He is just a little full grown maltese. All of ten pounds. Less when he get clipped. He doesn't listen. Just like a kid.

He's a full grown Chihuahua No chance of him getting bigger at this point, he is not a Teacup variety, either. Just the runt of the litter.

He is absolutely adorable. Last month when I was so sick with the Norovirus Teddy Bear came in the house, jumped up on my bed and layed down beside me. He knew I was so sick. Normaly he wants a back scratch and for me to give him treats. He did this for two days. Then the next day I was still in bed, but feeling much better. I was weak and just laying down. Somehow he knew it and wanted his back scratch and treats. That is when I knew I was going to be all right. Even though I didn't feel it at that moment. Animals know.

The term is "Dwee"! My little pug girl, Pandora, is very Dwee! She commands lots and lots of attention!

I heard some guy on the radio, a "virtual reality pioneer," probably a big name but I didn't catch it, who described chickens as "servo-controlled feathery devices."

Watching little wood duck chicks dive out of a hole way up in a tree and bounce around on the ground makes me think the little fluffball chicken chicks would probably be fine. But it's easy for me to say - no consequences for me if they should crash-land.

The weather has been unseasonably warm this week. The girls and Cocky Rocky have been racing for the door every morning. Today they got a special treat--the rototiller came out for a bit. They were racing behind it to snatch the worms that were turned up.
