Shakin'

I just had a run in with two dogs. They came into our yard and killed our chickens. (The cute little things wander our yard eating bugs, seeds and whatnot.) I confronted them to try to get them to stop and the one pit-bull-mix dog came at me. SCARY. I went as quickly as I could back up the stairs into our house and called 911. Animal Control came pretty quickly, but not until after all of our chickens were missing/dead. Pretty sad, really.  What’s pretty bad is that Animal Control said that the dogs were in custody yesterday for destroying a chair or something in someone’s yard. They’re repeat offenders!  Luckily, the pit-bull-mix dog is apparently the “nice one” of the two, so I wasn't in too much danger. Although if you were going to tell me that at the time the thing lunged at me, I would have told ya bullsh*t! The other one is a collie mix that’s apparently a very bad seed.  Turns out that the Pit bull mix is illegal in our city, so it won’t be back. The collie mix will probably be back at its home ready to do more damage. Grrrr.

You should sue the neighbor who owns the dogs. Get money to get more chickens! I think CSI to match the bite impressions would be good.

Let me state for the record that I love all animals and respect life in all its forms... BUT! destructive, uncontrolled wandering mongrels are a menace!

Cats rule. Dogs drool... literally.
