What to do when you come home and your dog is covered in blood and your rooster is dead. You have had previous times when this has happened. You have warned and spanked your dog. Now it is personal. Now my dog gets to wear her dead rooster of shame. I wired the rooster in three places onto my dogs collar. She will wear the dead rooster until it falls off her neck. Every time she tries to bury it, it pops back into her face. This is the last straw. This advice came from a sport dog breeder. It is working already. The chickens are all whispering and shaking their heads at Osa. She will learn this hard lesson.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
