Checking The Smells Out
When we got there Father he would want to smell each kind of thing, then he would leave them alone. The ducks and chickens never cared for that too much so he would hold them down with his foot and smell them all over then let them go without any harm but to their dignity. He would try that with the guineas but they would fly so one day I was close enough to catch him by the back of the neck and push his head down and told him “No” and I have never seen him do that again. The pups are just seeing what belongs here, and are more interested in what they leave behind.
