After being turned down by our local dog rescue centers because we have cats and chickens I bought Daisy a Jack Russell puppy. A year had past since Jack died and I so wanted another. Daisy is now 11 wks old and I had her in the back garden playing while I was weeding. The garden is enclosed by a wall. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a sudden movement, look up just in time to see a buzzard dive bombing Daisy. I yelled at the top of my voice and it took off over the cottage roof. Never seen one this close to the house before. Would it have been possible for the bird to take the puppy ?
