    I was feeding he chickens his morning and my little terrier/corgi mix started barking and barking at something in the brush. she never barks unless there is something/someone there.
    I went over to look and so did my other dogs and out rushed an armadillo. The fat thing waddles away past my chickens as quick as it could. I called the dogs back so they don't hurt the little guy, but the minor event brought a smile to my face so i thought I would share.

    DH? Not so much, but he and the dogs are not allowed to bring any harm to our resident dillo. [​IMG]

    I caught one rading my guinea nest.
