  •  Yup. (0+ / 0-)

    That's how my shepherd-chow mix Annie got her lesson in pootie etiquette.  They usually work it out by themselves.

    Never meddle in the affairs of cats, for they are subtle and will piss on your computer.--Bruce Graham

    •  I wouldn't want to count on the kitten being able (0+ / 0-)

      to defend itself.

      As I say elsewhere, I once had to rescue a kitten that my dog was tossing in the air.  One crunch of his jaws and that kitten would have been in two pieces.

      I want the dogs to know, without any question, that this kittens now part of the pack.....and under the protection of Pack Leader.  I also want the kitten relaxed and calm....because just running away can trigger a chase-and-kill response in a dog.  Any dog. Even your sweet old wouldn't-hurt-a-fly dog.

      Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
