I'm in the house and DD yells she can hear a hawk...so I dash outside
with Strider and Robbie. The chickens have all disappeared, but I can see
their silhouettes under the chicken house. Good.
I look up, and there's a hawk circling around. Not a Redtail, but same
rounded wing tips and size. It's slowly coming closer, and "the boys"
haven't got a clue. So I look at the hawk and growl. I turn dogs' heads
the right way to look, but they aren't getting it, so I put them in a
down-stay and keep growling, hoping they'll want to know what I find
I glance over my shoulder to see if they are looking up, but they are
looking at each other.
I swear, if I see a shrug, no dinner for either of them!
I am coming down with Sadie. Sadie is a hawk hater and keep my house a
complete no fly zone. Well ok not just my house, anywhere there are hawks. LOL
She means business too. She doesn't mess with little birds, but hawks,
buzzards and turkey better stay clear. Sadie will teach the boys how to get rid of
She did this at last years gathering and got all the dogs going. Of course I
think they were just all chasing her and each other but she was too busy
working to notice LOL
