Animal control is on the way today. I have had enough of the neighbors crappy little dog. I am not even going to talk to them about it because I have been there and done that and it does no good.
This morning I had a few chickens out in the front, as usual I sent Tip out to push them back through the fence. No big deal. Except that dog was in the yard too. It was intently sniffing something on the ground. I am near sighted and cannot see far away, so I couldnt see what it was so interested in. I was afraid it was one of my girls, dead.
Tip was herding in chickens and I was headed out to see what that dog was sniffing. Tip caught sight of the dog and started after it. I told her no, to come and stay with me. She didnt want to, but her years of training with me paid off and she stayed with me. I couldnt find anything on the ground. The little dog had retreated back to the next door neighbors yard and was barking and acting like it was going to come after us. Tip wanted to engage, but I gave her firm command to stay with me and she did.
I am not going to live like this, again. We paid over 12,000 dollars to have the back three acres fenced in. That should be enough I would think, to deter dogs from coming from the back of our property to the front. He has to travel to get here!
I will fill the animal control officer in, show him my one remaining shoe, Petes butt, and tell him what happened this morning.
I want him to explain to those people that they have ripped up a show chicken, and my shoes, and if it doesnt stop I want compensation for my damn pain and suffering and worrying and damages. I know that sounds like a line, and it is, but I want them to know I MEAN IT.
If this continues I will have to do what I have to do to rid myself of this pest, and I will. I have before when pests threatened my birds, and I will do it again.
Okay, enough about that, I will update once the officer has come and gone.
Now, on to chickens. :) Yes that puts a smile on my face. I am glad everyone enjoyed the videos and the pictures. I do enjoy showing off my girls and guys.
I thought I would post a video of Hank crowing today. He is such a handsome man and such a leader of the flock. He patrols his area constantly and keeps things in line. I like a man that can keep things running out back without being aggressive and mean. He is a sweetheart.
