We have added another dog to our family. Jessie is a 3yo kelpie-smithfield cross who needed a new home because she wasn't being exercised enough where she was living. She is pretty overweight and we expect that will change with the running, walking and playing that she's doing now.
We will need to watch her with the chooks though, yesterday she chased one of the roosters all around the chook run and into the woodheap. I was on the mower and could see tail feathers poking out of the woodheap and it took a long time to get him to come out again.
We're planning get both dogs some basic obedience training, mainly for when we have visitors, so they don't get bowled over!
