I can see it both ways....
The farm dog should know enough not to touch anything in the barn, so that falls on the owner.
However, if dogs are running around the property, you should know enough to put your stuff up as the potential is there for it to leave via the dog.
If they were my polos, and just ones that I used every day, I probably wouldn't care. Possibly even if they were "good" polos...I still wouldn't be that upset about it. If I had caught the dog "stealing" I would have aimed a (missing it) kick at him, and yelled at it.....but I wouldn't feel like the BO should reimburse me for them.
