Chicken Dog

We said, "Snuggles, don't chase the chickens!"
We said it often. But now she's pretty content 
to sit back and watch them as long as they're 
where they should be. Tonight when they got in 
the garden, she made it her duty to get them out. 
Then she was satisfied that she was so helpful. 

It's not that I mind them eating the kale, 
but I sure don't like them scratching out the 
new plants, or the seeds that haven't sprouted yet.

They sure do go at it, 
digging for bugs and such. 
They scratch with a vengeance. 
They make holes in the mulch.

But they're such fun to watch, 
and each of them lay an egg a day.
