I was sitting on my porch today, late morning, enjoying a break from fixing horse fence... My dog Breyer, a pure bred 100lb Bernese Mountain Dog is always with me. She even joins me in the chicken coop to feed, collect eggs etc.. I wouldnt trust any dog in the coop without me there but shes never been a threat. She will lay in the coop an even let the chicks come to her... Showing no interest in eating them. Its not unusual to see her laying out by the coop taking a nap. Well today as I enjoyed my break, I could hear a hen letting all of us know she just layed an egg.... including a fox! Out of know where Breyer launched without a sound.. all i I saw was a streek of fox, and 100lb Breyer right on its tail.. Ive never seen her move so fast... She and the fox running full bore, tore into the woods.. She was gone 20min or so! Weather she knew what she was doing or not.... She Saved The Chickens!!! My fear is that now the fox knows we have chickens... Im sure they will be back!
