I kept screaming that the dog better never kill my chickens, whatever dog we got, better have zero pray drive.
I knew anything with poodle in it would be a stupid choice since poodles are known to be nippy.
Whatever... The dog of course DID kill several chickens before I trained it to stop.
I just hate dogs, most especially chicken eating and now goat chewing dogs.
For your next dog I recommend a sheltie if you've got the time and want to try one. They're very high energy and need a lot of training to keep their minds from being naughty but I absolutely adore mine(my pre-us dog) lol she has helped to raise wild baby bunnies, hamsters, mice, chicks(as in baby birds and chickens) kittens and adores human babies. She's also very very sensitive and even though she is strong enough to drag DH2B across the floor she also senses and changes her play and can play tug of war with a toddler. I'm not gun a lie I have put a lot of work into my dog. She's my baby girl and I've been offered ten grand for her BC of her temperament and training. Turned it down flat. If you're willing to work with the dog I highly recommend them. They're fluffy but she'd more seasonally than anything and they're small so theyre not overwhelming to guests and Molly can play fetch for hours and hours. She tries to give the chickens kisses instead of chasing them will whine if she doesn't get to see the chicks.
Yes I used to have a favorite spatula until my mom set it o. An electric stove burner that was on. .. Ah I don't think I'll ever replace it. Now I also have a favorite pan though and love the set we got. Ceramic from Walmart last year on black Friday. No way could we ever have afforded the set except for that.
You guys are killing me here... Oh keurig where art thou?!
