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

We are the PugRanch Kids
Hazel & Mabel


  1. mabel you are a pawsome techer... the little berd resuded to fly with his momma but as soon as you came the fly lesson started... well done!

  2. Crikey Mabel ...... You're much nicer than me!! I'd have had that birdie for brekky.

  3. You were so good to just stand back and watch the baby. We're glad to see that baby found her wings. At least you didn't have to endure what Chester did. He also had a baby robin in his yard and when he went close to it one of the parents swooped in and started yelling at him to get away.

  4. You are a good girl, Mabel. I don't think I would have handled the situation the same way that you did!

  5. Mabel, you were so sweet with the birdie!!! Way to go! Our mom encourages us to be that way, too, what with us being her birding buddies and all! (Hard for her to take photos if Cam and I scare the birdies away!).
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  6. We think you taught him to fly!!

    Your Pals,

  7. Mabel, you were so gentle with him, and helped him find his wings. SHE's very impressed.

  8. Wow! I would have caught that baby robin for sure! You have good self control. I'm not going to say this too loudly, but baby robins are sometimes a little short on brains. I chased one once, and it flew up and landed on my Jessy's head!

  9. Mabel, you're a lot better dan I woulda been.

  10. Baby birds be glad the parents are still looking after them. Mabel it is just terrific how you looked after the birdie. We are going to have to finish our baby birds story that came with our birdhouse. We had one make it being hand fed which still comes some evenings and sits on our porch with us. Funny little thing.
    Thanks for being a friend

  11. You are such a sweetie, Mabel. My pups might not have been so kind. I'm glad that the birdie found her wings.

  12. You helped him find his wings. That is a great thing. Congrats

  13. Oh Mabel! You taught the baby bird how to fly! Way to be awesome ♥

  14. Mabel you are one sweet puppers fursure! I would have at least barked at it! ☺
    You are the Ambassador of all anipals!
    Oh, and I thinks their poopies are tasty...just a tip

  15. You guys are the best aeronautic instructors I've ever seen. So nice you were so kind and not crowding the little bird's space.

  16. you are adorable the way you were so interested in that birdie, maybe you helped the birdie learn how to fly and you don't know it? xoxo DakotasDen

  17. Oh Mabel, you are so sweet! You are an example to follow for being so kind and friendly - We had a similar thing with baby quails this summer, and it sadly didn't end well for one because of Eva.

  18. Wow! What an adventure. I've never been that close to a bird before. Hopefully he'll be back to sing you a song!
