You can imagine how alarming it was for me to get a ride home from work and have to point out my house by saying, "It's the one with the cop car in front of it..."
I've posted before about our dog and the neighbor's chicken. The chicken liked to come play, they were friends. She even started laying her eggs in our front yard. We'd talked to the neighbors about it a few times. They were planning in the near future to put a cover on the chicken coop, and were even looking at them today. I guess tonight Dominator played a little too rough. Joshua went outside to feed the dog and was disgusted to find a dead chicken in our back yard. So...the neighbors and authorities were notified, the dead chicken removed from our backyard, statements taken, and our poor dog put in the back of the police car. He has to go to doggy jail for 10 days, to be observed, then hopefully he gets to come home. They said we could visit him, and they let him take some of his toys.
Luckily, there's no hard feelings between us and the neighbors, and the lady cop who came over was nice, too. Just an unfortunate situation we have to deal with the best we can. We're just glad we got him his rabies shot a couple weeks ago.
