    2 miles that's quite a run. It is scary running when your scared to death. I suppose adrenalin keeps you going. A couple of years back I was chased by a deer in the woods when I was walking the dogs. It was defending its young one and crept up on me before it launched its attack. My heart was pounding like it was coming out of my chest!! It was going for the dogs and the dogs were going for it then it was going for me again. It was awful and I just set off as fast as my legs would carry me. Shouting the dogs as I went. I thought if they don't follow that's there own look out!! Thankfully they did and we legged it the whole length of the wood. Needless to say I've never been over there by myself since.

    That's cool the shelter does a video for the dog! He looks sweet. Be careful though camping, heelers are notorious chicken eaters.

    I watched that video yesterday on facebook. I didnt care for the dogs action. No eye contact and too shy. shy dogs make biting dogs.

    York, same thing happened to me . I was walking my moms dog it couldnt poop and she gave it something. We were way over the hill and I was bent over weeding . I kept hearing a noise I didnt know but i ignored it. It started getting louder and i looked up . there was a big buck with 2 ladies Rutting season and I dont know how many points he had on his head but they were all pointed at me [​IMG] It all happened so fast. The dog started pooping, the buck started charging and I started running. I was dragging the dog and she was pooping as we went. I was running so fast I couldnt scream. I didnt stop til I got to the windows of my house and was slamming them to get help.
    Relating this story to my BIL he asks, "were you wearing white ?" [​IMG]

    No it wont. Laying mash has too much calcium for babies and will hurt their kidneys but short time couple days shouldnt hurt. I feed all my chickens/duck, flock raiser. from day one.

    I can't get him anyway. But he looks so sweet, poor boy. I'm dying for a catahoula. I've wanted one for years. Guess I'll have to wait for my turn to roll back around. :(

    All is going as planned so far. Just got back from town. boy is it hot out !! I seen a couple trees fighting over a dog. All thats left is locking up the barn and a shower. I smell a little past due. [​IMG] I dont have food and not very much money so i was trying to play nice at cvs. I got 2 gallons of milk, a small bag of chips and drooled over the chocolate. when I paid she handed me the receipt with $2. bucks reward [​IMG] So I got an 8 pack of reesses .
