I live on a farm and have kennels for my dogs. However, I normally turn one loose each day and allow them to run free. They normally stay close to home and don't roam. Last Monday I let one loose and then headed to Temple to see my sick son. When I got home about 3 in afternoon the dog was not at the house. I listened for a few minutes and could hear a dog baying about 300 yards from the house. I went to check on him but the brush was to thick to get to easily. I whistled a few times and he would not leave what he was baying. Because of where it was I figured he had found a coon and was trying to get it out of a brush pile. I figured he would be home in a littile bit. The next morning he was no where to be seen. Found him yesterday dead in the creek and cut up by apparently a hog. He died withing 50 yards of the house trying to get home and in a straight line to where I had heard the dog baying. Very sad and will miss him greatly but he was enjoying his freedom. If I had it to do over would I do it differently. I just wish I would have had a chance to hog break him. I only let them out one at a time because they do not rome when they are loose one at a time.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

Sorry to hear. A sad day indeed. A feral hog can be a cruel teacher.....The more bottom a dog has the more susceptible they are.

Very sorry. I know the pain. No one of us can anticipate all the potential risks. I've lost 2 in the last 5 years and the pain is unbearable, I would do anything to have them back

So very sorry for your loss.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.
