Even after being leashed, Mushroom kept whining and pulling toward the chickens, so we took her to a corner of the yard that was out of line of sight of the coop. We practiced the "touch" command with her. If she could do it successfully 5 times, we moved closer. If she tried to pull toward the chickens, we moved feather. After about half an hour, we made it to our goal - the snack table (we were feeling peckish) and lawn chairs about 10 feet from the coop.

Just as the pig was being removed from the spit, the weather turned fowl. The pork was eggcellent, but we were soaking wet. Mushroom was so miserable that she cowered under the serving table to stay dry, oblivious to the meaty goodness inches above her soggy head. So we flew the coop and headed home, where it was nice and dry.

What confuses me is this - there were three other dogs at the pig roast, and none of them were interested in chasing the chickens around. Does hennyone else have a dog that chases chickens, or are we the only ones left alone and ostrichized?
