Again, this is Daisy. She’s not really too smart, but she’s been a good dog… soft with our kids, hasn’t peed on the carpet too much, generally OK to have around.

Unless you are a bird, that is.

Yesterday, we looked out into the back yard to see our little darling with something in her mouth. Something with wings.


I was promptly dispatched outside to relieve the dog of her conquest… no easy task, as she was quite proud of herself and unwilling to surrender the spoils of war without arguement. After some persuasion, I was able to convince her to give up the feathered prize, and she spent a few hours outside, hopefully getting the taste out of her mouth.
I don’t know if Daisy did the bird in herself or found it in the yard, but the end result is the same… a formerly alive flying creature, without a head, in her mouth.

By the way; when a dog bites down on a dead/dying bird, it makes a very disturbing crunching noise. Just thought you’d want to know.

    Yummy! Glad to see a new post, although the subject matter was less than appetizing.

    Oh well, at least the Pup didn’t play handball with the poor dead thing against the wall, the way the cat we had when I was growing up did. You wanna talk about gross……

    when i was in collge, i had a pup who liked to play the dead animal game…and to him, it was a game. he realized really quickly that if he wanted to be chased around the yard, all he had to do was pick up a dead animal (usually a toad because our backyard was always flooded).
    i used to think he wasn’t very bright; until, i realized he’d pick up the animals not because he was an idiot, but because he realized it was an easy way to get my roommates or myself to play with him.

    outsmarted by a puppy…what would my students think…
