Well, Lisa's dogs, if I remember correctly, don't mind the rats. Babe won't
bother the rattie girls if someone is holding them or they are on the table.
If they are on the couch or the floor, she alerts on them and begins to
stalk them. We tell her "Leave it!" and then she flops onto the floor with a
disgusted look or she gets up and asks to go outside. Mostly, Babe is
outside when the rats are free-ranging...just in case!
