    so one of my neighbors poisoned both of my dogs..now my goats will NOT quit crying for anything..they are ok if i go out there and play for a bit and throw some chicken scratch down for them to dig for but other than that, they are wondering around calling for the dogs. [​IMG]
    will they ever stop? its so sad, but its also going to annoy the entire neighborhood at this point.

    That is really sad. [​IMG] I think after awhile they will start to cry less. I hope the neighbor gets arrested for animal cruelty for the poisoning.

    [​IMG] I would put them closer to where the neighbor is who poisoned their dogs! (on your side of the fence of course...and watch them to make sure that butt-hat doesn't try to poison your goats too!)
    Let that neighbor hear their sadness! ETA: And maybe hang a sign on their necks that say we miss our doggies!

    oh i know they can hear, and i hope they know its their fault too.
    i just dont know how to make them happy again..i never knew goats were really this rigid in their social structure, or whatever it is.
    poor things [​IMG] if they werent so messy i would let them inside.

    oh honey.... I'm so sorry [​IMG]

    Give them some time, they need to mourn just like people do. Just give them some extra attention and love on them.

    thanks everyone..they are so sad!
    the strangest thing ever was this though..i went out there to calm them down, and my hens and little red rooster came over! they just stood there looking at me with the goats, i wish i wouldve had a camera..its like they all know something is missing. that sounds goofy but it really does.
    i have to say, this is probably the saddest birthday ive had in a very long time, thats for sure! [​IMG]

    please put all of our minds at ease and tell us that you are at least contacting the authorities over the dog poisoning. I don't know how I would make it through the day. What kind of monsters do you ahve for neighbors? They should be in jail for cruelty for animals and probably some other charges. OMG I would be upset beyond belief.

    major hugs for you and your poor baby goaties! [​IMG]

    I am so, so sorry. Is there any chance that you could/would consider getting them/you a new dog or two? Of course, you should wait until those wretched neighbors have gotten their comeuppance...
