It was with some apprehension that I left Trudy over a week ago
with my friend Bettye and her chicken friends.
I knew the day would come that Trudy would have a chance at the chickens.
Bettye convinced me that Trudy would lose interest in that henpen.
This little Schnauzer says
bunnies, squirrels, chickens, were made for the chase.
|First peek at the chicks!|
I have no pictures since I didn't get to witness this firsthand.
So here's what happened as Bettye tells it.
Bettye FORGOT to close the chicken coop after feeding the chickens.
Her favorite chicken Fonza saw the open door and
seized the opportunity for freedom.
Trudy was also out!
Can you say Uh-Oh?????
Trudy saw Fonza and the chase was on.
Bettye was in a panic.
She couldn't catch Trudy or the chicken.
Round and round the yard.
I think you could say she was
panic-stricken for her chicken,
I've got wings!
So, up, up and away. She flew over the fence
and hid behind some boxes in the open garage.
I'm sure Trudy was mighty surprised and disappointed
to see that bird disappear.
It took a while for Bettye to coax Fonza out and soothe that fluttering heart,
but she managed to get her back to the henhouse.
Fonza ran back to the farthest corner.
And promptly laid an egg.
End of story.
Something good did come out of the wild chicken chase after all!
|Love me some chicken!|
