If to put my dog (Leska) to sleep at the 4th was'nt enough, now my 2 other dogs are going to give me trouble.
I agree, it was my fault too: I should have closed my door with a key, but who would expect those monsters to escape ? They were in my living (with the door closed) while I was moving boxes with old paper into my car to get rid of. I was walking from the door to the car with those boxes, when suddenly one of the dogs managed to open the door and they just run off.
Viv and I did spend the next 1,5 hour searching them and we were on the edge of giving up, when Viv heared them. She found them trying to put a rabbit in two pieces: a horrible sight, they took the rabbit out of his hutch in the backyard of one of the neighbours at some 100 meters distance. We ringed the doorbel, told the lady what happened (she had'nt noticed) and gave our name, address and telephone number.
Since there was a lot of blood on there paws I've cleaned them with the gardenhose (very cold water which they did'nt like at all) Give Viv a cold shower by accident as well (which she very calm told me: Mam you have to put the hose in another direction , this way I get the water) After they were cleaned and in the house again, Misty & Daisy refuged to go in the backyard again. (the cold water was to traumatic, I hope they made the link escaping, rabbits, pheasants and the gardenhose)
The next morning I was called: they not only killed the rabbit, but they forced their way into an aviary with 4 pheasants (special ones) and they killed all the birds as well. Now I have to deal with the insurance.....
In fact, I think that ain't the worsed: Since they eat the pheasants, they now know the taste of prey and they are able to get them out of their shelters. So next time, I am afraid that they go directly to the same house. This family do have goats, chickens, rabbits and lambs and they aren't sheltered very well....(no fences)
My dogs did escape several times but never caught caged animals.
At the moment I am not in the mood to like them very much.
