The schnauzer & the three-legged chihuahua escaped the yard again today. After an hour chasing them I just gave up & came home knowing they would come when they were ready. They didn’t & it was dark so I went searching again. I nailed them at 9 pm in an alley a few blocks away.

When I got home there was a car with an irate neighbor blocking my entry. Sophie & Franky had attacked her chickens & killed five of them & she was demanding $25 or she would call the police. What could I say? She had every right to be irate & demand payment. I’m only grateful she didn’t throttle me.
