Dogs on Thursday on Friday...again

Dogs on Thursday completely got by me this week. No excuses. No good excuses, anyway. I'll try and do better next week. ~sigh~

Anyway, remember the neighbor's chickens from this post? The ones that have been taunting the dogs? One of those not-too-terribly-bright chickens decided to make a nest and lay some eggs. Now, it's not the nest that I object to, it's the location of the nest. It is so close to the fence that the dogs can taste those eggs. Literally.

Not too smart of that silly chicken. Here is a video that I took yesterday of the dogs and chickens.

The real fun part is that Spartacus (the rooster) feels the need to hover around the nest and display his machismo whenever the dogs or I are out in the yard.


It wouldn't be so bad, except that he is not content to simply flap his wings and cock-a-doodle-doo. He feels need to chase you, which can be might inconvenient when you need to get to work in the morning. I've told him he's going to end up on a rotisserie, but I think he knows it's just an empty threat. Maybe I should play him this video clip from Cold Mountain. It's one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies:

Take that, you floggin' rooster!

I don't know how I'd do it. Scary Macho Rooster Dude.

Maybe you need to post a sign on the fence stating that these are bird dogs.

That was great. I'll take him to CedarLane auction if you want.

I like Sue's idea. Spartie is a beautiful boy though, but he must hang around with some truly dumb clucks!

I love that movie! Maybe you should play this little scene for Mr. Spartacus and show him his future if he doesn't leave you & the dogs alone!
