Clive Was Truly Annoyed at Having Lost the Chicken

One minute he’s on the way to market, chicken safely tucked under one arm and whistling a random tune. The next moment Mr. Darby’s brainless spaniel runs up behind him and spooks the chicken something fierce, causing the bird to react violently. Unfortunately the violence was directed toward Clive and not the dog. Thank goodness chickens don’t have massive teeth. As it was Clive escaped the chicken’s reaction to the sudden presence of the yapping mutt by clawing Clive randomly about the face and neck. Clive reacted to the attack by doing what most humans would do under similar circumstances. He released his grip on the bird and attempted to put a bit of distance between his face and its claws. The chicken, seeing an opportunity to escape the human, dog and his fate at market, took it.
