I have a complete hatred towards livestock, killing/ maiming/ chasing " dogs". I have three chickens left after losing a couple dozen chickens, countless chicks, and 8 guineas. Of Course this has happened over the several years but these deaths have all been at the paws of DOGS, mostly my neighbors, and brothers husky. Solution: husky is no longer allowed to come visit and neighbors dogs scared off by a well aimed, low powered bb gun. I have dreamed for years of getting an Australian Shepherd. The time finally came that the planets aligned and we where able to bring home our baby Dash. He is the total package, everything I could ever wish for in a dog, smart, loving, loyal, and fantastic with my young boys. This winter when Dash was 4 months old, the above mention husky came for a visit. My baby Dash witnessed Thunder ( the Husky) killing one of my beloved lavender Guineas. Not sure if there is a correlation but now my Dash has taken a sickening fancy to catching our feathered babies and mauling them. He has only done it twice, one of which he fatally injured my last Guinea "Guinness". My heart is so broken now. I have never believed in beating animals but I came so close today out of sheer ANGER and FRUTRATION, when my sweet Dash attacked and defeathered my Bantam rooster Stew. I locked him out in his outdoor kennel a couple of ours ago so that I can calm down. I cant even bare to look at him I am so sad. I love him so so much, but I also care for all of my creatures I feed and nurture. Getting rid of him is not an option, and the same goes for Stew, Goldie, and Raina (my last remaining chickens). HELPPPPPP MEEEE!!!!!!
