The Tulip Bed

Mum takes a lot of pride in her tulip beds. She was hard at work last Fall, planting in the bulbs, and she's been quite consistent, making sure we don't dig them out, or run in the beds and break the tulip stalks. But sometimes, we run too fast and get so overwhelmed in our play, we just dash through the beds. Well, I don't do that, but Rummy does, and it drives Mum mad.
Me and Mum's special tulips
I do my best not to run through the tulips but as you can see, Rummy doesn't really care.
Rummy says "hey Mum, what? Don't stand on your tulip bed? I can't hear you."
Rummy standing in between Mum's precious tulips. He has been responsible for many broken stalks.

Me on the other hand, I keep clear always, and stay on the edge. I'm the good one you see..

And with regards to the Chicks, here's an update. The chicks have tripled in size in the last month, and they now have twice the space to roam, with both halves of my crate being used as home. 
Rummy still loves to watch them, and he licks them whenever he can stick his tongue and reach them.

Keeping watch over his chicks. Rob thinks he wants to eat them, but we'll see. 

The chicks stick their heads up to reach him, they peck on his nose, his tongue and pull on his fur. We guess that maybe they think he's their mum, which is why they come close and peck at him for food. 

Head Rubs,

You guys look so handsome in the tulip bed!
Wow! Those chicks are really growing fast! They're going to think you're their mommy, Rummy!

Love ya lots,

Our Mum loves tulips too. She puts hers in pots out of 'harm's way'! In fact all the new shrubs on the patio now have a low fence around them to help them establish. We're not so good you see.
Those chicks have grown! They look well. Rummi is doing a great job looking after them. I think they're friends!

Maybe by watching the chicks grow up, Rummy will realize he's supposed to protect and not eat them. My first Airedale was great with the chickens but I've had no luck with the others since.

You mommy's tulips are so beautiful...How could you 'n Rummy NOT want to be in the middle of them?? The only thing to make a tulip bed more lovely is to add a couple of Dales to the mix!! Well done!!

Roasting them in the oven before gazobbling them we see, very clever!
When we're outside we have our selective hearing earmuffs on too!!
