No talon wounds? Heavy odds the owl dropped the pup because it had it by the fur that makes up most of a pom's volume.

Yeah, it was probably the fur that saved her. If she'd been a chihuahua, she'd be dead.

Move your house to the lee of the stone Mrs. Brisby. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a hankering for a yappy little rat dog or two.

Tell you what, if I was an owl and saw that tiny little pom running around, I'd snatch that bastard up too.

If you go to Valdez, Alaska, they'll tell you about the poodle snatching bald eagles.

Go bald eagles! Go great horned owls!

My sister in law had to have her pom shaved a couple months ago. One of the funniest things I'd seen in a long time.

I don't doubt the owl had trouble grabbing flesh.

Cool story, bro:

When I was kid, my sister's cat was taken by a wedge-tailed eagle.

Aside from her tail, which we found underneath the nest, there was nothing left.

So, I don't doubt that this story is true.

I used to have a pomeranian... she was the sweetest dog ever, contrary to their reputation. never snarled at anything, only barked at the doorbell, and even then she usually was like "woof woof... oh, I know that person"

we found her wandering through a busy intersection with no collar. we put ads in the paper, fliers around the neighborhood bun no one ever called

My dad(who never liked a dog in his life) fell so in love with her that he eventually decided to build a sunroom addition to the house so she could have a place that was sort of indoors but go outside whenever she wanted even when no one was home or awake.


I hated the idea, I had always insisted that she never be let out into the yard alone. I was concerned because there are owls, hawks, coyotes, foxes, and even the occasional puma sighted in our neighborhood and I didn't think she would be safe. He said, "no, dogs have survival instincts, she'll know to come inside if there is anything out there."

2 weeks after she moved into the sunroom, she failed to come inside for breakfast. my mom went outside and found her dead, something had torn out her throat. We suspect the killer was a mother racoon that had been seen around recently... my dumb dog was friendly with every one and everything, and I suspectshe tried to make friends with one of the racoon babies

Shaved pomeranians disturb me greatly.

The more I look, the more freaked out I am. This is serious uncanny valley territory, in dog terms rather than human.

Nope. Great horned owls are one of the few birds in North America big enough to haul up a Pomeranian puppy. Golden eagles, bald eagles and (maybe) ospreys are about the only others. Golden eagles out here on the coast swoop up cats all the time.

Sorry for your loss. Yeah putting a defenseless animal in an easily accessible area is not safe. My brother's friend had a rabbit in a hutch in a sun room/porch type area. Two German shepherds broke in, easily got into the hutch and killed the rabbit.

Squirmy little suckers, they are. Just chance that it dropped near a concerned motorist. Else, it would have just been picked up again, with a tighter hold, and maybe its throat ripped out for good measure.

First thing I think of when I see "pom" is presence of mind. Not in the context cantsleep used it in... but still.

Well if random websites are to be trusted, great horned owls can kill armadillos, porcupines, red tailed hawks, peregrine falcons, wild turkeys, geese, swans and great blue herons. That Pomeranian got lucky.

Depressing story bro...


I am consoled by the fact that she was pushing 11 at the time, was starting to slow down and she probably didn't have many healthy years left in her. she never suffered the debilitating diseases of old age, and it was probably fairly quick judging by the injury she had.

/sometimes wish I had some sample DNA so I could clone her if someday cloning is feasible... sometimes I kick myself for even thinking that way, but she was a great dog.
