    I'll never forget the fire in his eyes and hearing those little bones crunching!!

    I'd also be willing to bet that there are people on here who have never done any of the training for their dogs.
    My dogs hunt with DH but he did almost none of the actual training. I'm the main dog trainer in the house.

    We had laying hens. Came home from work one day and something had gotten to them. There was blood, feathers, dead birds, pieces of dead birds everywhere in the barn. Hubby was out of town so I had full clean up duty. It was summer so I couldn't leave the mess until he got back. Since then I just can't touch a dead bird unless it is ready to go in the oven.
    We had the same thing happen this past year. Came home, let the chickens out to range, and two hours later it looked like the poultry version of Texas chainsaw massacre! 12 carcasses in all. Only two survivors, and we then got attached to them and even named them. And like Willie said, don't ever name something you plan on eatin'.

    Anyhoo, two days later, a metal gate I'd left leaning up against a fence in the pasture apparently just fell over, landed on a fox, and killed it. I thought it was a freak accident, but my wife is convinced it was "foul" play.

    I never saw a fox up close before, and let me tell you, they got some TEETH!
    His skull now adorns my mancave wall.
