After having my chicken yard broken into this week & dealing with Animal Control on that issue, I have been very on edge about stray dogs. :hair: My other neighbor's dog was by today and gone before I could get my gun. Actually, it's his friend's dog that he sits - I have had problems with that dog before. Saw their two dogs tonight just a few minutes ago when we were rounding up the turkeys. I went in the house and loaded up some snakeshot into my .357 so I could fire a warning shot without hurting them. It's *incredibly* loud, I don't think the dogs would ever be back in my yard after being shot at once with it. Got out the door with the flashlight & the gun just in time to see the neighbor hurrying up and calling them home. SIGH, I hope heard the neighbor heard me say to my husband that I had the gun loaded and was looking for the dogs. I hate to be the neighborhood Kill Joy, but I have HAD IT with loose dogs!!!!! :veryangry: I am turning into a momma bear! Anyways, thanks for letting me rant.
