The Happiest Dog in the World

I’ve never known a dog like Preacher. He plays with everything. And I do mean everything! I’ll look outside and he’ll be coming out of the cornfield with a four foot cornstalk in his mouth. He’ll drag that stalk around until he gets tired and then he’ll jump up on the trampoline and do a few flips…not really, but he probably could.
He loves to play with the swing. He loves to play soccer. He loves to chase our neighbors cattle. He loves to slosh around in water. He loves life.
But, mostly he loves to torment the chickens and the barn cats. We are certain that there is a little bit of herding dog in Preacher. He keeps his flock of chickens in check and makes sure the barn cats are never where they shouldn’t be, like outside the barn. Poor things haven’t seen the light of day for months thanks to Preacher.
So far, the chickens are protected from our over zealous pup by our “Heitschmidtized” enclosure. Did you know all you need to build a mini chicken coop are two tires, some old wood, two doors and some chicken wire? It’s true.
And it works perfectly fine. Preacher agrees.
