We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

I love my puppy, Cochina: repost from Ebay

I love my puppy, Cochina. (saenzmom)
Posted Apr-08-08 07:27:21 PDT
But, I just have to face the facts she is a "hunter/killer." Yesterday I just felt like bawling all day because she killed the mother rabbit who lived under my house. I have been watching this rabbit for almost two years luckily her last litter had already moved on. Cochina is a killer; she has brought trophies to me since we took her in as an abused baby on Christimas Eve.
.
The first animal she killed was my favorite banty chicken that I called House Chicke because each time the coop would flood being the runt and low on the pecking order she would get knocked around. I would always rescue her, bring her in the house, bathe, and dry her. She would sit on my shoulder like a parrot and sing to me. Cochina got her a month after adoption. Then she attacked and got a lower level rooster. Then mice, and other critters she happened to catch.
.
Mind you I love animals but watching "Mother Nature" is a cruel process. I have been teaching my sons about the cycle of life but, that does not assuage the grief at losing something you love to watch even though it was wild. Cochina, please stop killing.

Hi Mal! Wow that is sad. Makes me feel horrible but it is nature ~ I have two chihuahuas that would love to get my cats if given the opportunity but they know the consequences from Alpha

So sorry about your rabbit and chicken, Saenz! :( I couldn't deal w/ it either. That's another reason why I have 6 lb housedogs who are afraid of everything including hummingbirds and roaches.

Morning Peeps, Sheilae, I would probably just faint if she brought in a skunk. Hello Ladywhitknee, good morning. It is tough life living so close to nature.

I'm so sorry Saez...I had a black lab that would get out and kill the neighbors pet rabbits, then another neighbors chickens, then killed a goose...I was always at the place where you by livestock and having to mend was...once he tore up the neighbors entire garden. I had to give the guy a large metal wall stacking table for that one...sheesh. Chochina needs a time out!!!

I know Angelic, its just hard to watch and be a part of. Sometimes I really want to take her to a "no kill" shelter because she started in on my chickens on Day One.

Hate to say it, but once puppies/dogs start killing, they usually never stop. :( The animals at my home now (including my cookie addict squirrels in the trees) are part of my family and if something came in and killed them, the new one might be headed for a new home, too.

Spoke to my aunt who knows more about dog training than I do. She said the puppy might've been hungry and had to kill to eat before you got it. She said to always make certain the puppy is well-fed which I'm sure you do anyway.
