We have new neighbors (which I haven't been over to see or meet yet-I know, slacker!!). They have some very big, fluffly dogs, really cute -a Camel one (that his name) and a black one-didn't hear that one's name. Well, they paid a visit to us today. Well, actually to our yippy, Trigger dog. Yeh, Trig didn't stand a chance. Of course, he is still chained up so he got in his house. They came into. Of course, I wasn't really wanting to get into a dog fight so I proceeded to hit them on the back with a hoe-didn't even faze them. I ran into the house to get the gun, got the wrong gun-a 22 doesn't make enough noise. Meanwhile, Trig was able to get out of his house and brake his chain and start running as fast as he could. Of course, they caught him and started chewing on him some more. Shot the gun in the air twice. Yeh, wrong gun but I think that is what got the neighbor to finally notice his dogs were in our yard. My two whole bullets were shot so I picked up a brick and started throwing it at them. That finally connected and hurt them a little. Trig was able to get under the trailer and the owner was able to semi contain his dogs. I was able to get Trig locked up in the pump house and he drug his dogs home to lock them up. The kids, except Lexi, were crying. Lexi had brought a hoe to beat them with that didn't work. I told her to get away in case attack turned on us. I also sent her in the house for the shotgun. But here's the funnies of the story. Have lost a wee bit of blatter control due to babies, I had a slight (just slight, not full blown) accident from swinging the hoe and throwing bricks. But the best thing was when I shot the 22 in the air, I actually hit a bird (or I should say chicken because all birds are called chickens by Brek). I shot randomly in the air and killed a bird!! Can you believe it??!!! Kind of funny!! On further inspection, the supposed chicken that I killed was all dead and crusty and has been for a while. The cat must have killed it not me. So I guess I'm not as good a shot as I thought. The dog covered with slobber.
