Feeding and Water Boarding

I can tell you, feeding the animals has become a diplomatic mission, with shades of water boarding.... Patti the puppy just has to be hosed down to maintain the needed decorum.  Of course, after just a few minutes, she likes it, and starts chasing the stream of water.  Rocket who has 42 acres of grass, insists on eating my potted plants... after I generously allow her out of the pen...  Magic just chases everyone and tries to get out the gate.  Donkey begs for attention, and those cotton pickin' roosters try to spur me in the back of the leg... reminds me of an old song, and that Randy is coming home....

We will kill the old red rooster when he comes, 
We will kill the old red rooster when he comes, 
We will kill the old red rooster,
We will kill the old red rooster, 
Yes we'll kill the old red rooster when he comes...

And the next verse goes, 
 
We will have chicken and dumplings when he comes....
