The value of a good guard dog

We’ve lost a rooster and our drake over the last few days, and another rooster, this one a fancy Houdan bartered from a friend over the water hasn’t been seen all afternoon. I found some feathers though that I can’t quite place among the other birds we have so I really am wondering now if he hasn’t been taken too. The feathers were mixed in with a prodigious amount of duck feathers, about at the edge of the birds ‘comfort zone’, just before the grass starts to get longer and offer cover for a predator or two.

Our dog, Dusty, can normally be found underneath our porch, when she’s not playing with her English Sheepdog buddy down the road that is.

The value of a good guard dog is not lost on us…
