Some of you may recall that the neighbor's dog, an Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler cross and very young, was on our property recently. We have a bit over five acres, but about 3 acres of it is for sale, and we have perimeter fenced the other 2.22 acres with our house and outbuildings on it. It's livestock fencing on a heavily wooded parcel, mostly to keep my girls in and roaming dogs from being able to just come through easily; however, if given enough time, a motivated dog can dig under or climb over. Today, my younger BR rooster, Mace, was kicking up a ruckus behind one of the garden areas. We look up to see that dog up at the fence and not just the part that is closest to his owner's property, but way up at the back of the fence that divides my smaller parcel from the parcel I'm selling, probably looking for a way in and eyeing some of my girls who were doing what they're best at, rototilling the raised beds. We yell at the dog, who walks down the hill toward his home, then turns around to bark at us from a safe distance. There were people over there and some kid we dont know yelled for the dog, sort of half-heartedly. My DH called to talk to the neighbor who said he would "take care of it". What that means probably does not include making a fenced area for said dog. I'd be willing to bet money that he'll be back up here. They've been warned. That's ONE.... I like my neighbors, and having good relations with them is important, but I have birds who are not easily replaced, some from quality show stock. To me, their lives are more important than playing nice with the people who live next to me.
