Re: dead animal in the walls... How do you detect it?
My dogs find things they didn't kill too. Sometimes I'll catch them eating a dead squirrel. I guess if they smelled something "new" they might track it down.
Reminds of the time two of them, Xena and Zim, caught a cat and flushed him out from under the shed. They got him before he could get over the fence. We heard them barking like crazy and a cat screaming and hissing. When we went out to find them, they had the cat cornered and he was beat up badly. No blood but couldn't move his back legs. Managed to get the dogs away and inside and went back to help the cat. He had a tag but wouldn't let me close enough. So I had to move the tag with along stick to get the phone number of the owner. He came with a pet carrier to get the cat. Funny thing is whenever anyone comes anywhere near my house the dogs bark like crazy. When this guy came and walked right past where they were, total silence. Like they knew to act like there were no dogs here! Strange animals!
