So that was Challenge #1 and I think I passed. I also passed challenge #2 - cleaning up dog poo in the billiard room - little brats used under the table TWICE as their bathroom.
However I think I failed challenge #3 - the dogs chased into the kitchen area a chicken that happened to wander into the property and I couldn't pick the bird up with the dogs all excited - so I grabbed them both and took them off to their pen. No easy feat in their frenzy to get the chicken. My arms are covered in scratches from their sharp little claws (adding to the red welts of mosquito bites). Anyway I finally captured Miss Chicky and with the dogs howling their protests -took her over to the neighbors and asked them if she belonged to them. According to the lady she was - but I have my doubts because there weren't any other chickens running in the yard. That's really not important now though, because after letting the dogs back out and going to have a 5 minute sit down to calm myself - I went back outside to find a DEAD CHICKEN at the door! The dogs looked at me very smuggly I thought! Poor little bird - and she didn't even get a good burial - I scooped her up into a dustpan (with my eyes shut) and threw her over the fence into some bush.
So am I kicked off the show?
