You'll have to get another one for your other kneecap.

That's terrible...And right in front of him!
Guess what.....
Hubby asked me.... How many pounds is our pup? I told him 4#'s Why, I asked...
He said a friend of ours just told him of a 4 pounder that was picked up by an eagle.
They actually found the pup alongside the road a few miles away with a chunk out of its back side.
Amazingly the pup-dog lived to yap about it!
She...The person that told my hubby that says shes netted off her entire back yard for her paps to run free in.....

would it be OK for me to mention the all time classiest creature of the sky again; Haast's Eagle?

Haast's Eagle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Haast's Eagles preyed on large, flightless bird species, including the moa, which was up to fifteen times the weight of the eagle.[4] It is estimated to have attacked at speeds up to 80 km/h (50 mph),[5] often seizing its prey's pelvis with the talons of one foot and killing with a blow to the head or neck with the other.[citation needed] Its size and weight indicate a bodily striking force equivalent to a cinder block falling from the top of an eight-storey building.[6]

That was quite the family to feed wasn't it!
Any idea as to how many eggs they usually lay in a clutch?

The other night I saw a nice sized fox run in and grab a slice of bread from where I feed and enjoy the three local crows out back.

I keep my little 4 # long hair chihuahua tied on a line when she goes out during the day (because of the local Eagles) and MOST eves unless HUBBY lets her run free but I'm now wondering with her not being any larger than their natural diet...Rabbits!!!
Would a fox be so bold as to come near and snatch her up?

Has any one ever heard of a fox snatching up pups or tiny dogs?
