We told our landlord what happened with the ducks, chickens, and the dog encounters, he phoned the neighbor, they apologized, offered compensation (we're happy if they just keep the pup tied up), and then latter our landlord phoned us saying there was a chicken wandering by his house near the creek. Sure enough, it was our battered little chicken, missing plenty of feathers and with some small bloody marks around her neck.
Maybe when Phillip chased the dog, it did what he'd hoped and dropped the chicken, giving her a chance to skeedadle. So she's back, our rooster looks much less depressed now, and the neighbors are going to keep their dog tied up and fix the fences. I guess it's a big thing if your dog starts killing other people's livestock/animals, or wandering on their property, over here.

Fishing in at the river, New Years Eve. Phillip and I joined (to watch and talk a bit) right before they left
Baiting hooks, New Years Day
Stewart's Flat Head. One of the them, anyway.
My one and only fish: a puffer fish hooked through the side. They're a nuisance fish, and pretty much useless
The dock we fished off all day. After maybe 6 hours, I got bored and started wandering taking photos.
