I've missed all of your chatter lately. I'm burning the candle at both ends and can't get on here much! I have possibly jumped from the frying pan into the fire, which is my normal mode of operation. Do it constantly.
I got the LGD, (PyraneesX Anatolian). What a pain in the butt! Have gone from waking up all night worrying about the lion, to waking up all night cause of the dog barking at everything. My renters are mad. They don't have animals and don't care about predators, but they do like to sleep at night. So juggling this dog and trying to rush to get her trained has been taking up all time not already used for kids, animal care and glass work. She is great around the birds, so I don't have to train her much there. She is not too good with my dogs though. I hope they all get used to each other. If anybody here has experience with getting this breed used to other dogs, feel free to pipe in here.
On the egg front.....9 shipped Seramas still alive in the R-com and the Mind Reader Bator is taking good care of 4 eggs still. (2 Serama, 1 Guinea, 1 porcelain d'Uccle. @Sally Sunshine
Congratulations to the MPC winners!!!
TJ it's good to hear from you. No help with the dog though. I've heard they love to bark and my neighbors Pryanees is no exception 24/7. I would say a collar but they were born to bark and their thick hair will make the collar almost useless.
Really hope you get that cougar soon.
Hi, Yeah, I've used a collar on her, but don't want to overdue it because she's here to keep the cougar away. Sometimes I have to wiggle it around on her and get it pretty tight for it to work through her hair. I'm trying to get her to understand what's appropriate to bark at. Might be an impossible dream but at least she's better than the first couple of nights. She doesn't need to bark at distant owls and coyotes that are 4 miles away. I correct her if she is over doing it. I don't think we'll see that lion again with her here.
I'm in a bit of a unique situation here. You may remember when the mountain lion corridor proposition passed in CA? We'll the state took the money from that and bought the ranch next to mine as lion habitat. So, the 17,000 acre cattle ranch next to me is now owned by Fish and Wildlife. It is nothing more than a playground for state fish and wildlife and also a fire hazard bought by us taxpayers. Better than a housing development, but....
