It was a quiet, sunny Saturday afternoon. As I stooped to pick up dog poop, all of a sudden, birds began flying around me, squawking and screeching like something awful was happening. As I turned to see what was going on, to my utter shock, horror and dismay, there was my beloved Sunshine with a baby fledgling in her mouth.
The baby bird was screaming loudly. The mom and dad were dive-bombing Sunshine. I was yelling at her to drop the bird with the hope it would survive.
I still can’t believe that my sweet dog killed their baby in the second it took me to stoop for poop!
