    Just got home from work to discover a stray dog in the neighborhood, part of my flimsy fence pushed down, and one dead baby in the yard. My poor sweet Violet!! None of the others were harmed, thank goodness, though they're all about half bald.
    My neighbors know the dog's owners and called them to come get the dog. To his credit, I suppose, the doofy guy apologized several times and offered to "buy me a new chicken"!! AS IF!!
    I've just buried Violet - where else - by a patch of violets. I should've buried her with some string cheese, since that was her favorite treat...

    oh no, another dead chicken because a dog's owner is an idiot. Sorry.

    Next time shoot the dog and don't look back.

    I'm so sorry for you and your little Violet. That's a terrible thing. I'm glad all your other babies are OK.

    So very sorry for your Violet! [​IMG]

    Maybe something good comes from this and at the very least someone will learn to
    control and confine his darn dog!

    I'm so sorry about your Violet. I also have a Violet and it would crush me if that happened to her. They really get into our hearts.
