Bird dog

The story of the birdies is not a happy one. Not only do we have a dog, we have a bird hunting dog. The growing birds were driving him crazy. Despite being dive bombed by both parents, he got two of the three birds. We can only hope that the third got away.

This hunting stuff was serious business. I did put a wire barrier up after this picture was taken, but he probably got to the other side and knocked them out. As much as I enjoyed watching the nest being built and seeing all the food being delivered, I hope that they do not try to build a nest in my yard next year.

Oh...this is sad and funny at the same time. Our dog is exactly like that, and our neighborhood is full of birds. I think she might be getting used to them for the most part, though, because there is just no chance she can catch them all :)

We have a yard full of dogs and cats. Each year we tell the birds- "Don't nest here!" Sometimes they don't listen. Nature can seem so harsh at times.
Your dog is a cutie!
