Attack Thwarted

One of the dogs was my hero. At least in his mind when he went after the rooster for attacking me. The rooster didn’t have a chance and didn’t make contact but my reaction was always being startled and that generally means loud and that plays to the dog like I’m in distress.

It went for the rooster in a mild show of force awaiting my approval or disapproval to continue. I yelled no twice and the rooster was gone out of my way.

It was such a weird attack attempt. I had given it ample little treats of bread but he’s not as fast as the hands and they grab those pieces from him sometimes right out of his mouth. I saw that he got to eat at least a couple of pieces and I thought he might be happy. I try to keep them out of the pig food well the pig is eating and that did a good job.

Then, the rooster saw fit to slowly escort me back towards the house one step at a time. I look away long enough to step I look back repeat.

About halfway back something must have happened that was a long enough look

away that he felt he had a chance and he went for it. Instead, my defense stick came between us and it looked like it was going to be over until the dog defended.

Now for unknown reasons I’m all the way up at the house and he’s still coming at me. I’m not sure if he would have tried to come up the stairs towards me had he not seen the dog. He seemed like he had a grudge.

He stands here now with no chickens around cuckhauling his face off. No points awarded and I think he’s upset by that. If you thought like a human he’d probably be thinking if it wasn’t for that meddling dog that would have been my chance.

His second of the day.
