    We went grocery shopping and left the dogs home. Daisy, our lab, I knew would be fine. Harley, our 1 yo golden retriever adoptee...I wasn't so sure of. I was afraid he may potty in the house, or chew and damage something.

    He managed to get into my baby button brooder....and he killed them all. I am soooo upset. Words can't even describe it. Pathetic huh? Over birds? But they were my little crickets....and I'm really hurting over this one. I know you guys will understand like no one else will.

    I'm sorry for you and for the little lives lost. Find the brooder a place away from the dogs because now they see it as a snack bar.

    I know exactly how you feel...They are just not birds, but our babies.
    Funny how we get so attached to them in such a short time.

    Hugs to you!!!

    UGH!!!!! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry! No matter how much I know it's not the dog/cats fault always gives me a tinge of anger. My boy cat gets a slap on the bum everytime he takes interest in my birds. It's gotten to the point if he stares at them he flattens his ears and cowers if he hears me coming because he knows what he's doing is wrong. I keep up the repetitiveness, and I will continue to do so...he's not fooling anyone...I KNOW he knows what he's doing is WRONG! LOL!

    he already killed one button (youngster partly feathered) and caught my other one that i rescued luckily.

    My cocker would do the same thing, but im a biggie on crating my dogs when im not home they'd both get into nothing but mischief. [​IMG]

    RIP baby buttons

    I'm so sorry!! [​IMG] It's awful when they die. I was bawling my head off about the nonhatched eggs my evil houseguest killed, so you go right on ahead and cry about the fluffy peepers [​IMG]
