    I have lost 4 turkeys and my black cayuga hen in the past week. My Pyreneese took off about 4 weeks ago and now the neighbors lab has figured out that he is gone. I have 2 new pyrenees but they are pups(7&9 weeks). I talked to him this morning after I ran the dog off again. He is going to chain her but for how long? I really hate to shoot my neighbors dog but! I am 39 and he is 34 so we will be neighbors for a long time. The dog killed my 3 yr RP tom, a 2 yr blue slate hen, sweetgrass jake and a RP hen who just started laying. The dog got her off her nest just as she layed an egg. Sucks!

    Your a better person than I am. I live by a firm saying on my farm. If its not clucking it best to get a trucking.

    We talked again this afternoon and he agreed the dog had to go. He was going to try and find a home for it while it is chained but also told me if he couldnt find a home then I could take it off and do what I wanted as long as his daughters and wife don't know. She is a 1 year old black lab but is really aggressive! She actually bit his father when he came over to visit and has come at me. I told him several months ago he should get rid of her because he has little girls and I work around dogs everyday at different vet clinics all over East Texas and I told him she could not be trusted with kids.
