Our Backyard

Also known as the place where nature comes to die. 

This is what I was doing when I got home from work yesterday:

And as angry as that bird looks, I assure you that he was dead.  Poor guy.  Apparently the dog discovered him in the morning.  And by ‘discovered’, I mean stared really hard in its general direction until Bob went to investigate.  Yeah, my dog is such a wimp.  According to Bob the bird was still alive but not looking good at that point.  Obviously that was not the case when I got home.  RIP little buddy.

This is the second time in recent months where a sick animal has chosen our yard.  Not too far back, a small squirrel with a jacked up hip and leg was cowering under our bushes.  I kept him in a box in the garage (he couldn’t hop out) all cozy before dropping him off at the emergency vet the next day.  Don’t know if he ever recovered but I’d like to think so. 

I’m scared to think of who or what is going to show up next….
