April 13. Day 104. Fur's flying

My sister invited me to lunch today. Chicken on the menu but not how anyone expected. Lisa lives on acerage and suggested I should bring my dogs. That seemed like an awesome plan until I remembered her chickens and how much my dogs love chicken. Not to worry, she said. It was easy to keep the dogs and the chickens separated. Well, that was the plan. Needless to say, that's not how it worked out. The fence keeps her dog in but mine are smaller and there was a smallish gap at the corner. Out they got and went straight for the chooks. While the chickens had the advantage of flight the dogs managed to bail them up in a dead end by the pool fence and Rumple had one by the neck. My brother-in-law managed to intervene just in time. There were many feathers lost but all animals survived. We all calmed down and in a great irony ate chicken for lunch. Later, on the way home, I saw roos. The dogs stayed in the car. There had been enough fur flying for one day, thank-you very much.
