Did my chores this morning, and was getting ready to grocery shop for my dish to pass at a party this afternoon. Megan, my border collie (from KayKay) was barking at the back door. I just thought she wanted to go back out, so told her to be quiet and I went out the front door. When I got out to the truck, I could see two stray dogs (labs or lab mixes) by my stallion's pen. Suddenly one went under the fence and was chasing Echo. The other dog was running on the outside of the fence barking. Echo was kicking at the dog. He never really landed a good kick, and the dog didn't seem real aggressive, but then he wasn't looking for his way out either. I drove out there and started screaming at the dogs. The one on the outside moved away, but the one on the inside just looked at me like "What?" I went in and shooed him out of the pen. Then he started running into the barn. I caught him and chained him. The other one kept trying to get close to his buddy, but wouldn't come near me. I called 911, and animal control and the state police came. By then the other dog had run off. Animal control took the dog away. He had a rabies tag. I have seen these two dogs running through the neighborhood in the past, but they had never bothered my animals before. The animal control officer volunteered that many people wouldn't have bothered to call them, they just would have taken care of the problem themselves. I kind of feel like I over-reacted, but it sure did scare me. All I could think was that the dog's game of chase could so easily have turned tragic, especially with his buddy with him getting all excited. I really need to pay more attention when Megan says something is up.
