The Amazing Feats of Hero and Herb
I wish I'd had my camera! One of the cockerels ventured closer and closer to Hero as he ate. When he was just inches away, he seemed to notice Hero. He looked at Hero and came even closer, extending his beak to almost peck Hero's muzzle. Hero just looked back at the cockerel . . . then he licked his chops . . . and very delicately turned his face to look away. Other than encouraging him with an occasional "Leave it!" or "Good boy, Hero!" I did not interfere.
So our chicken-chasing dog has figured out how to please us, and he has appointed himself Guardian of the Chicks!
Good boy, Hero! You're amazing!
Good job, Herb! You're amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
