Sweetheart (the strange bird) has been protective this week. She had been overly eager to "patrol" Daddy's back yard in the hopes of catching some "trespasser" that has been coming around at night. Daddy says she sits on the back porch, constantly looking back and forth, scanning for any movement in the area.
Several times during the night, he will get up and check to see if she is ready to come in. When he turns the door knob, she takes off like greased lightning, growling all the way. He has gone out, flashlight in hand, stumbling over tree roots and probably Copperheads, to find what is disturbing her so much, but to no avail. That is until last night!
Bandits! Masked Bandits! A whole family of them in the back yard!
Two young raccoons lay dead. She must have caught them in the act of daring to come onto "HER" turf! Wait! She is innocent until proven guilty! But I must admit the "evidence" is stacked against her. CSI (Crime Scene Investigators) found her DNA in the saliva that was left on the bodies. Could she have been "framed?"
Know of a good attorney? She needs one!
P.S. We had rain today!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!! It has been extremely dry. We are going to re-plant some of the garden this coming week. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
