My husband said words I didn't want to hear. "The beagle found something the Border collies would never find. Come here, I'll show you."
I didn't want to see.
The husband led me around to to the lilies by the front porch and pulled back the foliage. There was a nest of seven chicken eggs.
"There were eight," he said. "But that's how I found the nest. He was eating an egg and going for a second."
