Cuddly Ester

 


Camera Critters

This week Photo Hunter theme is about CUDDLY and because it is also time for Camera Critters I choose to post my long lost pet Ester the chicken. Who was massacred along with some other chickens in our backyard. And the culprit is our neighbors dog. After we knew and two of our neighbors saw the dog with a chicken in his mouth hubby went to that neighbor and talked about what happened. But to my DH surprised the neighbor seemed not interested about what was going on and what damage his dog has done to our chickens. I knew it is not nice to hate neighbors but I did, am I bad?  I cried so much when we found out that the dog massacred our chickens, it didn't happened once but thrice!! And one of the victims is my Ester and my one and only rooster. To avoid neighbors conflict and feud DH decided to bring the 11 remaining chickens to his son. Still now I felt bad about my neighbor, other neighbors who knew about it shun from being friendly with them because the owner never say sorry amidst the warnings from other neighbors. Oh well, I am happy but kind of sad to see our picture together.

Your neighbor is so different from our neighbor.. When my husband went to tell our neighbor about his dog... He told my husband "Let's put him in the car right now and take him to the pound. I will not have something that is harming my neighbor." My husband said, "Oh no, I just wanted you to pen him up or something"... but my neighbor insisted that they take him to the pound right then.. No more problems with that dog and a wonderful, friendly neighbor from that day on... Sorry about your chicken...

Beautiful chicken. So sorry about what happened and just as sorry about the neighbor not taking responsibility.

I'm sorry to hear about Ester and the chickens. Great shot of you and Ester but I can see why it would have sad memories.

Seeing creatures suffer needlessly (or in any way) is so sad. So sorry this happened to you.

Such a sad story, and even sadder that adults don't take responsibility for what is theirs, or care and treasure the people around them.

What a world we live in.
