Yesterday to keep them from being underfoot and hurt should anything fall we locked the dogs up at the workshop. Hubby forgot to go get them before bed and decided that they could stay there. But around one o'clock this morning we heard the chickens start to carry on. Yup a fix in the hen house. So after chasing it away the dogs were brought back. Happy to say no further interruption to our sleep.
At least the dogs now know we know they work hard all night long on guard duty lol
