A Moment of Silence... Actually, A WHOLE NIGHT OF SILENCE!!!

Look, I'm sorry for the way he died, it was cruel, and I wouldn't wish it on anybody, not even Bill the Rooster, whom I hated because ever since he learned to crow, I haven't had a full night's sleep.  That would be over 4 months, I think.

So, yesterday I heard a ruckus in the next-door neighbor's back yard.  Seems like Brownie, their dog, got mad at Bill.   Bill got WAY TOO CLOSE to his bone, and Brownie (Brownie looks like a Great Dane/Shepherd mix) grabbed Bill with his teeth and shook him real hard, twice.

Ever since then, silence.  Silence is golden.  Silence is peaceful.  Silence is wonderful.  I woke up at 4 a.m., and nothing.  I was able to turn over and continue sleeping, until, oh, around 6 or 7 a.m.  Heaven.  HEAVEN!  

I'm sorry he died the way he did, but, I'm not sorry he's gone.  I slept all night.

Enid I understand . Our neighbor across the road used to raise dogs and they barked all night long.. I was glad when something happened and they had to get rid of them.
