more dog info:

They were back the next morning, and two of our chicken tractors had been broken into and 8 hens were dead and mostly eaten. We decided to take Duke back to the shelter, where they all loved him and said they'd take him back.

This morning Naysha walked Gina, and when she went to put her back in the pen there was a misunderstanding with Bob, and both dogs got out again.

We tried to keep our ears open, but the first thing we heard was Gina barking at the rabbit. When Bob went out to catch her he saw Duke eating more chickens.  All of one tractor (3 good layers and our only rooster) are gone. Bob restrained hisself and put Duke back in the pen.

(Yes, I said hiSself. It makes grammatical sense. Think about it: her shelf, his shelf; her self, his self.)

Come Monday, Duke will be taking a ride in the van.

I'm sorry for the dog problems and for the lost chickens. mums

Frustrating indeed. Probably for the dogs as well.

(For what it's worth, I agree that "hisself" makes more sense, but little in English makes sense to me anymore.) said...

Nice share. I think your website should come up much higher in the search results than where it is showing up right now:-*
