So I own a goat farm, along with my 18 muscovey and 18ish chickens that are all free ranged. We lease our land and our land over looks a lake. The landlord decided that he wanted to have the trees "topped" - ok no biggie. We explain that they actually need to be removed or they will cause the same issues year after year. So he sends an email and says that they are coming out to do a bid on the tree removal. ok no problem. We told the landlord that the dogs would be out in their pen and what not so no biggie they come out, do the bid, turn it into the landlord, he ok's it and sets up for today for them to start. Well today, we are driving to town and we pass an arborist truck - followed by another "work truck" with a chocolate lab in the bed of the truck with its head out the side .... WHAT... so I have been a ball of panic and my neighbor emailed me this morning that she would go up and check on everyone. At 3:00 pm (6 hours after she said she would go up) she emails me that the dog is in the cab of the truck. I call her to ask what time she went up to the house and she said about 2:00 ish and that is was a small dog - like a poodle in the truck ... so where the heck is the LAB??? Oh yah - must be running loose with them over the hill cutting the trees - or better yet - BREEDING my puppy that is in heat or crapping all over my yard .... GAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I am so upset.... and I can't go home because we live in the country and NEVER lock our doors - well hubby decided to lock all the doors and close all blinds/windows because people we didn't know were going to be on the property and he has the only key to the house! Not to mention the landlord is there from New Jersey (we live in Idaho) and didn't make them get the dogs off of the property ---- gah, I need a beer! LOL! So go home - inspect the Dogue de Bordeaux to make sure she wasn't bred, count ducks and chickens, pray that my goats were not harrassed all day and completely terrified and that my calf didn't twist a gut from running from the dogs ---- and find the poop that their dogs left in my yard (our dogs do not run loose to potty). Sorry - had to rant.
