Remember when I said I couldn’t let Nala loose because she chased chickens and cats? I really worked with her and was ready to give it a try this morning. I shut all the gates and didn’t see any chickens in the yard.
I let Nala loose and within 5 minutes she found one of my favorite gray hens under a bush and killed her in front of my eyes as I screamed bloody murder.
My own dogs are traumatized from my screaming and Nala, who is back in the kennel yard, is looking at me with sorry eyes. I will not / cannot adopt Nala. I am sick about this and would not sacrifice any more chickens or, heaven forbid, a cat to her bad behavior.
I will of course care for her and the puppies but now my heart just isn’t in it.
