Well, nothing like waking up to a barking 120 pound German Shepherd in your bedroom. Darn him. I swear he won't wake up when I trip over him in the dark every night, but last night he was hell bent on getting out back. I'm not sure if he heard something or caught a smell? The ladies are, I'm hoping, buttoned up pretty tight at night, So far, so good. Chicken coop is also on top of wire (so no digging under). My thoughts are the preds have been watching since day 1 (two weeks ago). They may have been around that first night, but my dog's selective hearing (he's 12) missed them? Anyway, this is pretty much the norm right? My property abuts up to 25,000 acres of the Santa Monica Mountains.
