Yes Mums home and its weekend, her vet say's she has to be home and can not go to work, so does Dad, the family and aunty Pam! She dare not argue with them.
So yesterday as I said we found an egg, later in the day Charlie Roo was making a bad noise it was his call to arms it goes "Cluurk cluck cluck cluck Cluuurk" Which means "Penny I need you NOOOWW"!So mum got up let me out and off I went all around over the wall and into the wood I chased that fox till I could not follow it anymore. When I got back Mum and Dad were sad, another brown hen "Sixpence" had gone. We looked everywhere, Dad called her, Charlie called her, I ran around nothing. Dad and I went over the wood and checked again I showed dad the trail, but he wont get down and sniff, he will never get the scent from up there. Anyway we went off, I got so far ahead I got bored and came home to mum, who rang the bell to tell dad I was back (But hes a bit deaf and did not hear so spent the next 10 mins calling me, that was awkward) anyway he came home and they were trying to work out what to do about the hens when mum said, "look they are all here" like magic they were all back, oh we were all so pleased Mum wanted to know where she was hiding so she knew for if it happened again, and what do you think.......yes sixpence had managed to squeezed herself (Sorry sixpence but your bigger than you think) in a tiny space and had laid an egg. Oh wow what a great ending eh!
I don't know if the fox will be back today now as I am that much closer to where he lives and he knows it. I am being very careful though, but I have to do what I have to do, its in my blood you see, Dad is a border Collie, Mum is half Great Pyrenees and half Anatolian Shepherd I have to protect my family.
Thank you all before I go for your comments and congratulations on DOTD yesterday, Ash and I were both so pleased.
Ash seems to be much better today again, and was even laying on the bed, he has not been able to get up there before! He still has to have his tablets which he hates, and he is still leaking from his tubes, but he is talking and walking and he gave Mum a kiss, he is such a flirt.
Ohh I have talked to long but you won't believe what Murph did last night...............Ohhhhh Murph you really pushed your luck.
Tell you another day.
I send big licks and thanks

Glad Mum is listening to us !!!!!
WELL chased Penny !!!
Hens are actually clever birds.. they get a bad rap .. they are genetically primed to evade predators. Ok.. doesnt always work.. but its often that way if they are penned up or cant get up somewhere. So... really glad they are ok.... keep safe Penny..
So glad Ash is doing so much better !!! Yayyyyyyyyy !!
MUM... be GOOD.. rest.. and all will be well
