Silly Mabel

Sometimes when Mom & Dad come home
and they've been gone for a while I get a little excited

They let me out of my crate and I am so beside myself 
that I just have to grab something

I used to grab one of my blankets from my crate
 but lately it has been one of the dog beds


I grab it and run around with it and whine and cry 
to let mom & dad know how much I missed them 
while they were gone


That's not so silly 
is it???

Baby Bird part 3 - the Encounter


The baby bird seemed very reluctant to leave our yard.
Mom and Dad tried to be very careful
 and not let us out when it was hanging out on the grass 

But sometimes a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do
Mom couldn't see the bird so we went outside


But there it was!  
Sitting in the grass on the other side of the tree


Mom! Do you see what I see??


For several minutes I just stood and stared at it


then I laid down for a bit 



while we just stared at each other


Hey Mom! I think I am going to move closer


Hi there little birdie! 


My name is Mabel - what's yours?


Then it ran and flew up on a short fence


Are you sure you don't want to play??


Mom even got a short video of me trying to smell the birdie
and then I went on my way

The next day we did not see him and haven't since
He must have found his wings

Baby Bird Adventure Part 2

More of our baby bird story

When we first noticed the nest 
there appeared to be 3 baby birds

Then one day there was only one and it seemed to be reluctant to leave our yard


Hazel - do you see what is going on over there??


The baby bird was hanging out in the corner


Then we saw the mom (or dad) on the fence above


The mom/dad bird would hop along the fence top 
then down the other side and back up


Then it hopped down to the baby bird
who thought it was getting fed


The parent bird went through the same routine several times trying to encourage the baby to fly up and follow it

The baby never did follow the other bird. 
It stayed right there in our yard. 

Part 3 - my encounter with the baby bird  - tomorrow!

Hazel has become a very picky about her meals.  
Mom is always looking for meal toppers to entice her to eat.
Initially Hazel thought this was quite yummy 
but after a couple of days she lost interest in it.
The other downside was - it is a bit mushy so was a little difficult for her to get all eaten without it sticking to her bowl. 

Although this seems to be a very good quality food 
and I loved it
it did not quite work out for Hazel
