    I have Three son's Christopher (7), Nathaniel (5) and Gabriel (3). We live on a 1 1/2 acre farm area, so we have plenty of room for raising animals! My partner and I raise Chickens & Ducks along with some cocker spaniels. Well it was about 2pm today when my youngest son Gabriel, comes up to me and tells me his older brothers wont let him feed their pet! In my mind im thinking they are feeding Puppet; our cocker spaniel who is pregnat. I go out to the backyard and my two older boys run out from behind the chicken coop. I realize that Puppet is in the house sleeping on the couch! [​IMG] So i walk behind the coop, and my boys try to distract me.... so as a parent you know somethings up! I see the trash can, we use to dump the animal feces in. I look in and see this thing and find out my boys have been feeding it for the past three days!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    H - E - Double hockey sticks, no. I've had them in my house twice (long stories, old houses), up close and personal. They were ugly. But I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder......

    I can't believe your boys were hiding that, though! Good thing you discovered it, I doubt it would have lived too long in their care. Not to mention of course that they could've gotten hurt caring for it!

    Those things are nasty! I'd much rather see pics of your cocker. That's my favorite breed of dog.

    Haha... Yep, that what i did. I shuffled this little pest into one of the dog crates and drove it out into the woods 25 miles from where we live! But my boys where complaining they never get to have any pets! [​IMG] Hello we have three cocker spaniels; and one of them is having puppies. And we just bought the boys three rabbits. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]. Yet they still say they never get to keep anything! LOL [​IMG]
