It would be GONE!!! when i go out to gather eggs, i have to put the bucket of eggs down at my feet because i have to use both hands to shut and lock my gate.... EVERY day she does this! I set them down and no matter how fast i am that dog is faster! She swipes a mouth full of eggs and runs like hell!!! and she know she has done wrong! I know she knows because you cant catch her for hours after that!!! she dont eat the shell, just cracks it in her mouth, sucks the yolk out and spits the shell out in one peice! all while on the run! then she will circle around you and try to do it again! so you have to hold the eggs up high because she will try to take them from you or she will bite your pant legs (but not bite you) to trip you or she will jump up from the back and push you down so she can have an egg! I am so Sick of this! My husband got an idea to take a few eggs and blow them out, wax the holes on the ends, take a needle and fill the eggs with hot sauce and act normal and let her swipe one! well, we tried it, he done this to 5 eggs, set them in the bucket and walked off, she took them all one by one. it DIDN'T work! any thoughts on how to stop this behavior? other than this she a is a realy GOOD dog! she is house trained, protects the kids and everything! Other than this i like the dog! but i can NOT have this anymore! I hate to get rid of her because she is my daughters dog but i may have to......She is a 10 month old brindle Black Mouth Cur... we have 11 dogs and SHE is the only one that does this! yet she will lay down in the chicken pen and let the baby chicks jump and walk all over her and lick them and never once tried to hurt them or anything! Please help... thanks!
