This is VERY disturbing.
And very VERY disturbing!!!
If you are sensitive, please don't read this.
(I don't want a single email about how awful I am to post this. I WARNED you, okay?!)
So, my dearest dog Zeke loves my chickens.
He loves to ignore them eating his food.
He loves to herd them all out of their hen houses, just because.
And he loves to chase them all over the yard.
He really does *love* them in so many ways.
And never EVER once has he tried to hurt them.
Yesterday he was chasing them about and I tried to stop him, as usual.
But he didn't listen to me, as usual.
So I did my chores and came in the house.
Then, I couldn't believe my eyes, but out my kitchen window I saw him carrying
a limp chicken in his mouth.
I was SHOCKED.
I finished what I was doing, then went outside to see the heck was going on.
He sat and just looked at me...with a VERY apologetic look on his face.
Really, he did.
Then I went back inside and a little bit later, looked out the kitchen window AGAIN,
only to see Zeke burying the dang chicken in the mulch in my flower garden,
right outside my kitchen window!
I never did find out exactly what happened, of course.
But I will tell you this, I don't think that dog killed that chicken.
I really think he gave it a heart attack chasing it and he felt so guilty about it,
he tried his best to hide the evidence.
And that's the end of my dog vs. chicken story.
That's life in the country, folks!
