THE DOG KILLED A CHICKEN YESTERDAY !!!! Yes, I was (am) appalled. Actually the neighbours who owned said dead chicken and from whom we get our best-est eggs ever, were so cool about it that we were very touched and relieved. WE STILL FELT JUST AWFUL last night and most of today until we made proper amends. It did make their 10 year son cry a bit which was just a heartbreak. Couldn't bring back the chicken but thought that maybe a homemade loaf of whole grain bread and some red haven peach jam (of course canned by ME last summer) and a note of sorry, might soothe any bad blood (pardon the pun). It was all I could think to do.
Just for the record it was totally the Mister's fault (are any of you surprised?). I think not. I know this screwy dog and I tend to watch her like a hawk....HE on the other hand tends towards a more laissez-faire attitude with accusations of my 'uptightness' and 'control issues'....his point totally missing the mark here this time. Need I say more?
All seems well in the Valley of the Crescent once again. Peace and harmony have returned and all BADDOGS are staying close to home and trying to suck up to the BIG BOSS LADY. Here's hoping this was just a one-off 'cause I will totally lose it if it's not.
