My daughter came to. Visiit yesterday & brought her friends dog with her. (Wrriting on the wall) well the dog seemed okay, but I don't truust dogs I don't know. I no more said the words I don't want that dog in the backyard when I saw it under the chicken tractor going after the girlls. Me in my bathrobe & bare feet, under the tractor, in the mud, snow & chicken poop defending the chicken was quite an ordeal! The dog had the chicken in its mouth & I had the dogs snout in my hand & the chicken in my left hand while on my knees & elbows. I caused that dog some serious pain with my nails digging into its gums & it let go. My daughter took the dog & I took the chicken in the house. She promptly pecked me 3 times in my left eye, I am sure still traumatized by the ordeal. I put her in a box, in the dark with food, sugar water and some yogurt. I left her undisturrbed & dark & quiet through the night. This morrning she is okay & no injuries I can see. I gaave her aa BIG handful of meal worms & put her back ouside with the others & she is in the coop laying an egg & tellling her story to the others. We got lucky, but my daughter learned a hard lesson about dogs. I had a couple of whiskeys to calm my nerves, but like the chicken, I am beat up. I realized I was barefoot in the ice & I have cuts & bruises on my feet & knees. After the storm we had here in WA and I had 2 trees hit the house & coop & ice from frozen branches everywhere made it all the more awful. Only cosmetic damage to the house & coop. Color me grateful! Now we are expecting a huge wind storm! Challenges, you gotta have 'em! Thanks for listening!
