First a little background.... The nearest neighbor's puppy kept coming to our place this afternoon. It's a cute little thing, looks like the pups in 'Where The Red Fern Grows'. I gave my kids the usual speech about mixing new dogs and chickens. My kids would take it home and soon we would see it racing up our lane again. I think it was love at first sight for both kids and dog! Tonight as my daughter was saying her prayers she asked God to "make the puppy come back and please don't let it eat chickens".
