Adventures of a lead dog

Holiday Decorating With Dead Birds

I'm sorry I'm a bit late in writing this today, but since I was chosen as a diary pick today, I was out celebrating my honor!

Since yesterday's entry was about interior decorating and home improvement, I decided to do a public service today and share a holiday decorating tip. This is a project that any dog can do, and it is also fun. First, you bring in some sticks and leaves, and then you kill a couple of birds. Find their nest, and put the sticks and leaves in the nest, and then add a couple of dead birds. This is a holiday centerpiece that will look great on any holiday table, and what human would think to use a dead bird as a centerpiece? All your dog pals will think you have the coolest holiday decorations ever. As usual, your humans will be so pleased--make it a surprise for them. They love surprises like that!

Like Whit barked, our cats would catch and eat the boids first.

I try to give mommy my kills and she never wants them. I don't think she would want a centerpiece with them.

For those of you with cats in the house, or even if you want a bird snack yourself, this makes the centerpiece perfect because you can always go out and kill more birds to replace the eaten ones. The more birds that die, the better. Of course, the humans might not appreciate the centerpiece as much as us dogs, but if they knew anything about a house looking lovely, we dogs wouldn't have to do the interior decorating for them anyway. Freckles, that Canadian dog might be a good match for me, but if she is even half as annoying as Angel Zoom Smokey is, I will pass...Angel even thinks that some of the bones around here are hers!!!

You might have to convince my mommy that it is ok to bring my kills into the house. She always toss them out.

I TRIED THIS! I TRIED! I got a dove yesterday and I thought, "I kill squeakers by shaking them..." so I shook it!

It was big and floppy! Then I heard Mama SCREAM!!!!! I let go and Mama threw a trash can over it and made us all come inside! Mama wanted the kill for herself!

Mama put the dove in a box called the 'bird hospital' and put it somewhere she and daddy called 'safe'. I'll bet they ate it.

GREEDY GREEDY PAWRENTS! I need advice on HOW TO KILL before Mama takes it from me!
