Bird dog - yeah, I'm a bird dog.....
My oh my, there was a lot of jumpin' and hootin' last night after I came in from the back yard. She seemed to be half asleep on the sofa and he had just let me in. She addressed me quickly and sternly with "What do you have in your mouth?!) He came over and made the first groan with - "Ooooohhh, dead bird!" He grabbed me AND Andy as he shouted out that alarm. She tore off for the kitchen in search of gloves and towels or somethin'. It all happened very fast. Then my prize was gone - I think it's in the garage somewhere.
I plan to patrol the yard carefully tomorrow a.m. - it's dark when Andy and I go out first thing. Definitely hit the dead bird spot to see if 'nother one has fallen from the sky! I'll know better than to bring it to the back door again......they're so fussy about trophies in the house!!!
