Abby is currently AWOL. She has escaped the backyard several times since she came to live with us, but this time she managed to shed her collar. Just yesterday, we finished what we thought would be an impenetrable shield against dogs that dig — chicken wire (Except it’s called poultry mesh these days… I guess the chickens were offended). We stapled it to the bottom of the fence and staked it into the ground. Unfortunately, the makers of chicken wire do not design it to contain 60 lb. chickens with strong claws. Abby was able to rip the chicken wire away from the fence and re-dig the hole we had recently filled in. We found her, but couldn’t catch her. Hopefully, she’ll decide to come home on her own.
And, I was all set to complain about something here, but, you know what? Life is too short. So… it’s all good.
