Why did the chicken walk down the road? If that chicken is Dalmatian I secretly suspect the whole purpose is to walk past the fence and drive my dogs crazy. Look at her. Walking along the fence just out of reach of the fur friends strutting her stuff. The free range chickens in my street are especially free range. In Dalmatian's defence, it is also true that I haven't seen her on parade for a bit and I suspect that today's visit may have had as much to do with the return of Margaret and her window of treats for all creatures great and small as it did to dog taunting but that's not how the fur friends saw it.
