2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Someone had tied a blue nylon rope around his neck; someone else removed it.  In neither case was the "someone" me ...

I don't need a fourth dog - but he's a damn good little watchdog. I've seen him walking the area around the trailer and chasing off some rabbits (yeah!!!) He's not always right outside, but neither of my neighbors have seen him on their places so he's obviously not going too far...

Shit, I may be in trouble!!!

@lostmaniac True, but by the time the Sheriff becomes involved it tends to be a lst resort and the dog is more than just a 'passing nuisance.'

Yeah anything is forgivable except attacking people and livestock and no leash laws and even with the livestock there is some leeway like paying for the dead animal instead of havig mine shot at

Well, my garden - such as it was - is gone.

Kujo has gone on to another fellow. I didn't mind when he ran with the cars but the day he ran in front of one and the driver skidded to a stop made my mind up for me. A friend who lives way out in the boonies (as if where I live isn't the boonies - just with a busy road!) expressed an interest in him depending on his reception by the existing house dog. They got along fine - after a squabble or two - I'm told, so I'm satisfied that he's in a safer place.

But the cats won't chase the rabbits - so my little garden is kaput before it even got started!!!

Something like this with solar fence charger should take care of those pesky rabbits.

I'll have to look at that again - the price on the fencing looks good but a case of sticker shock when it came to the energizer.

(( and I called Chris - the fellow who has Kujo now, no, I can't borrow him back! Smile ))

A gruesome but effective remedy for me in past years before I wire fenced my garden was putting kenzi out through the evening and night when rabbits were coming in and having her kill what she could catch (which were several back then). Then we would douse the garden boundary in the blood of the kill. Depending on style of garden you have you maybe able to get away with chicken/rabbit wire cloches over the plants of interest.

The motion sensor noise and light things can be very effective. Around here people use electronic owls that move and hoot. Dunno how well they work. Birds are the whole reason i havent planted berries.
Or you could take up falconry
