Watching Amazing Race and teams having trouble making donkeys move. So I googled how to do it .... and ran into this info about companion animals in taking care of donkeys:
"One big exception is dogs; keep them away from donkeys as dogs tend to scare them (dogs are too similar to wolves). "
Similar to wolves? My cairn terrier is like a cat, mountain goat, snake, rooster, and any number of other animals ... but would a donkey think a cairn is similar to wolf (pic)? Other breeds, yes ... cairn .. maybe not?
