We had an... event this afternoon. We went out to the bakyard and all the dogs were down the back. They were after a big bearded dragon, about a foot long, we've found 2 dead in the yard since we've moved in and I've called Mac, Harry and Buster off another one a couple of weeks ago. Their everywhere, I think they come in from the creek behind our house and its not a good spot for them to be. Its a big yard so I ran down yelling and calling. Buster and Mac backed off almost right away. Sophie got distracted and Harry wouldn't stop chasing it, before I could grab him Sophie went back and grabbed it. It was bloody awful, she jsut wouldn't stop. Grace went down and whopped her on the backside and dragged her away before she stopped, the poor thing writhed around and died within 10 seconds. Now I have always sung this girl praises thanks to her good behaviour, low prey drive and love of "little things" so this raises all sorts of things. Including what happened if the dogs got in a fight and she just wouldn't stop, shes a big dogs with a lot of power and thats scary as hell. I understand prey drive enough to not expect them not to chase lizards, I do expect them to stop when told to though. Sophie is naughty, but she's never killed a thing in her life, and she was the only one in the group actually wanting to kill it, not just chasing it. Nothing annoys me more though, than thinking they'kll "get it" if you yell and scream at them 5 hours later. Just because you show them the lizard doesn't mean they need a "touch up" So what now? Do I just work on recall and "leave it" more with Harry and Sophie.
