Fox Soil Cooling

Remember the giant gray fox that was eating my chickens? A neighbor thinks that it wasn't a fox I saw. His buddy dumped a greyhound poodle looking dog at his house, huge, fluffy and gray. He informed us that he thinks that it was this dog that I saw. The other day he brought us 12 pullets to replace some of the missing birds, and he is bring over one of his bannies to sit. He couldn't get his friend to pick the dog up, the guy wouldn't even return his phone calls, so now the dog has a heated fence, and no more birds have gone missing. I like this guy.

We have a long weekend ahead of us. We are getting top soil from my mother, and will be tearing up the floor of my house. I don't want to fall through it again.

Even with the air conditioner running, it is still a little too warm in the house. And I am not canning right now. Hopefully the weather men are correct, and it will be cooling off and raining soon.

I wonder how many odd google searches I will get with this title.

Wow, at least your neighbor is a decent gent. His friend however.....

Hope your weather cools down a bit. Our heat/drought wave ended. Today highs in the 50's and rainy. I love it.

Hope that your chickens last this time. Strange that a dog would go after them.

Alrescate, I agree!

Whimzy, sam here

ollie, you're welcome

Burdock, yes, I like the guy. The friend needs some hel. Must you rub that in?

Ollie, you must not have spent time in mixed company. Dogs will go after chickens. I have yet to meet one that didn't unless properly trained ot be terrified of going near them.

No surprise to me about that dog, especially with greyhound blood. One of my friends had two rescued greyhounds, and he had to have a very tall fence to merely discourage them from running after every bird and squirrel around. They jumped the fence more than once, he said they were just NUTS for wild creatures, and too fast to catch once the dogs are out. At least your neighbor tried to make up for it.

That is the sign of a good neighbor.
