    dam dogs got ahold of one of my fav. girls - I had just gotten her over impacted crop and the dogs got her! I wanted to try to save her but she had a twisted broken wing, 6 holes and a piece of missing skin [​IMG] I am still so mad and sad - one of my dogs really looked like he was enjoying it [​IMG] I have no idea if I can trust this dog again!

    All the evidence is pointing to the contrary. I wouldn't trust that dog within 10 feet of a live bird.

    Sorry for your loss. It's always hard to lose one, but infinitely harder to lose one that you have worked so hard to save.

    Ooohhh. Make sure you punish that dog. Maybe even get rid of him.
    Sorry if that's a little harsh, but killers make me mad!! [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm for getting rid of him, my birds are very important to me and he just had this sick crazy eyed look on his face, kind of scared me. My poor squeak just laying there looking up at me, I cried like a baby. Did the right thing by putting her down but I had spent two weeks working on her and she had just gone back out to the barn. She was not even a layer, she had stopped last year but was the coolest hen, followed me all the time.
