It's all fun and games 'til someone loses an eye. And so cute.
 
2014-04-04 01:47:01 PM
Yeah that's cute and all, but that is one pathetic excuse for a canine.

Are you implying that that golden retriever is a whorehouse madam? Because ew!

My corgi once found three baby rabbits. She killed two of them, I found her chewing on the head of one and the other had been decapitated. Fortunately I saved the third one.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a dog with a chick on its head.

I accidentally left a door open to the room with the brooder in it while the dog was home alone and came back to find him happily strutting around with a dead chick in his mouth. Poor thing probably died of a heart attack since he has a very soft mouth and there didn't appear to be any injuries on it.

an unusual degree of tolerance

I'm pretty sure that is the definition of Golden Retriever.

Dogs are pack animals.  Being that the owner is the Alpha in the pack and the dog recognizes that, it will be friends with anything the owner brings by.

Unless it's a terrier.  Try to keep a Jack Russell from tearing a rat apart, I dare you.

well only a mentally unstable person would keep a rat as a pet, so the dog would quite rightly NOT recognize his owner as the alpha and would of course be free to do whatever it wanted to anyother animal brought into the pack

This is surprisingly difficult to argue against.

Tiny flappy things that don't quite smell like mammals are pretty good at triggering a dog's prey drive no matter how they're introduced. It takes an unusual dog to resist at least chasing or snapping at chicks.

Our golden allows our 17 month old son to give her "kisses" for 5 minutes without budging.  It's cute and all, but I have no idea how she isn't seriously annoyed after 10 seconds.

Also, my golden would have tried to put all of those chicks in her mouth at the same time. Not to eat, just to see if she could...www.back40trading.com

I think it's called "raising your own food."  How many chicks are we talking here?  Does he have to file a CAFO plan?
 
2014-04-04 02:16:54 PM
Your dog wants chicken, and he's willing to wait.
 
2014-04-04 02:19:13 PM
I read that as ,"Golden retriever farks flock of baby chicks."

Deal.  Because they're chickens, hence chicks in the headline and not ducklings.

Yeah.  I don't recommend having a dachshund and a ferret in the same vicinity.

Great, now those chicks have a dog imprinted as their mom.

Nice going, dog.  Hope you can swim.

We had a dog who decided an Easter duck was her odd looking puppy and raised it.

The duck eventually learned to chase cars... quacking all the while.

As a rule, chickens don't spend a lot of time in the water.

Maybe Gerd XX. Best pets ever, but they don't live very long. The only thing that surprises me about that story is that I find it hard to believe a domesticated rat would bite someone. Check my profile.

My German shepherd lets the hens and chicks take food out of her mouth. They hide under her if they see a hawk. The wild ducks, geese, and other birds get chased away from her chickens. If she catches a wiff of rodent she will kill it. Same with the starlings that steal the food. She grew up with the chickens, though. She helps herd them back into their coop when asked.

Now my Aussie mix thinks that the chickens are plotting to kill him. He has to get away if they look at him to long.

MooseBayou: Yeah.  I don't recommend having a dachshund and a ferret in the same vicinity.


With each other or with rats? A rat would be pretty much screwed with either of those, but I've known some pretty large and mean spirited ferrets that might give a dachshund a run for its money.

That's a cool story.  Rats are pretty intelligent creatures, but I still don't think I'd like to harbor one.

This reminds me.  A while back I read that in the Wild it's the young wolves that do most of the hunting, it's the older wolves that raise the pups, and they're higher in the pack structure but generally slowing down a bit/not as fast to catch game.

If they've evolved to do this naturally, I'd imagine that an 11 year old dog, male or female, is expecting to take care of young ones enough that if he or she doesn't have puppies they'll try to parent something.

It's not a 'flock of baby chickens'  ....... it's a week's worth of future lunches.
