She is doing very well,has not ate any family members,you know what I need is a nasty rooster or hen that will chase her and give her a good peck.Her and Jadee are trying to trust each other but I think Tilley is to playful and tries to touch her with her feet and Jadee is just to fragial.So we continue to keep the leash on her untill we are sure she will not try to pounch on her.We still keep Jadee in the fish tank in the silkie coop,she is still scared of them and they will chase her and peck at her,but I`m sure when she is bigger that she will be able to intergrate with them.Who know maybe Tilley and Jadee will become friends,stranger things have happened.I have had puppies before but this pup is really smart and learns very fast its probably the boarder collie in her they are a very smart breed.The picture is of Jadee in her fish tank in the silkie coop

Tilley is growing fast,she and the chickens are getting alone fine but would never leave her alone with them,her hearding instinct is very strong.As long as we are with her she is good.Got more BO`S Sunday now I have 10,one is a rooster and I got one that was given to me because it is so much smaller than the others and they were picking on it,so she he was a freeby.

Tilley is now 5 months old,she is sitting on the foot stool watching the chickens.I have plants covering up most of my windows so she has to be up a little higher so she can guard the chickens from inside.

I love this thread, story, and the pic's. The one with Jadee in the fish tank, I had to ask my wife to come in and show me where the chicken was? I just could not see it...Green you had me worried, when I read "I wished I would stop growing" I did not realize you were speaking for the puppy until I came to the toy box...LOL I feel so much better now. How Cute...Hay

Oh oh. I don't think you want THAT to happen LOL! Years and years ago I had a beautiful Doberman which I had bred twice. Really thought out breedings and lots of lovely pups. Still lots and lots of work though. And then of course I just had to keep a puppy. Loved those dogs though. That was long ago and no dogs since but I really miss having a dog.

I just had to share this with you,believe it or not this is Tilley,I had her shaved today because she was so matted behind her ears and legs and I couldn`t even cut them out.She is gray!!Shes not sure were her hair went,she keeps looking at her legs and tail.But I think she likes it she was running and jumping and playing.DH will not like it when he gets home.Next time not so short.It will be cool for her this summer if we ever have one,its snowing today and 30 degrees.Tilley will only be outside now for minutes at a time not hours untill her fur grows back some or we have some warm weather.I can`t believe this is the same dog.

Lordy, she probably feels naked. Thats why she keeps looking at her legs. She is wondering who took her clothes...Wonderful picture and what a sweet dog. Green we also had snow and hail today. It has been freezing every monring for the past seven to ten days...This really stinks, but it's hard to complain after what happened to North Carolina and Va...Hay

Tilley and dh going to a ride,she is right on his heels when he heads out the door,she loves to go.I don`t take her but dh does.She is very good around the chickens,if I could teach her to round them up when its time to go back in the run that would be great.

That's amazing! I've never had an animal that payed any attention to the TV. Well, we once had a cat that sat on top of the set - probably because she thought everyone was looking at her.

I've had a couple of dogs who liked TV. Our old red healer loved to watch The Home Shopping Network. She knew the difference between the channels and that was the one she liked.
