    My family and I went for a family outting today to a zoo....when we got back I noticed that my big dog(Golden Retriever mix) had something in his dog run...I had a bad feeling and it was right. One of my 9 week old(turned today) got in my dogs run and well....my dog killed her. I am so upset..this has been a terrible weekend for me..first losing one of my few hours old chicks yesterday and then this today. I'm not hatching anymore, not this year anyway....I can't handle the thought of losing anymore babies. I have had a few adults die, but that couldn't have been prevented, but it is heart breaking when a baby I've hatch and watched grow dies [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] . I didn't know my adults when they were young.


    just edited to correct spelling....
