This afternoon, I was relaxing in the garden, trying to get my daily dose of vitamin D and suddenly the Fluffster runs up and dumps a large claw of (an obviously) dead bird at my feet. Well, I wouldn't call it run but I did move pretty darn quickly. :lol: My vocal cords may also have got some exercise at the surprise of a bird's claw being delivered to me!

I know cats do this sort of thing but dogs?! Eww! <shudders>

    Aha, you've witnessed the other side of 'owning' an animal. I know that cats do this, apparently as a 'thank you' to those who feed them but it's not unknown for dogs.; the chances are he / she found a dead bird (courtesy of a cat) and dormant instincts cut in. One of my friends has two retired greyhounds, who are the doziest and laziest of house creatures, but when they find some chickens or a deer all hell is let loose. Wildlife nil, greyhounds four (two of each). DD

    Hello Starburst
    years ago my dachshund used to bring me baby moles when she was having her walk.

    We have a fox that visits our garden but cats normally stay away due to the dog but perhaps they come at night. I knew that some dogs did this but he's never shown this sort of thing before. I think he was quite proud and I returned his pride by screeching. :P Ooops!

    Had a dog many moons ago who would chase birds out in the fields and on occasion bring me back some of his catch. Gross!!

    Sophie!

    How delightful :shock: NOT!!!

    I hope your heart has stopped racing and that your throat has recovered.

    Obviously I get this a lot having Daisycat so you have my sympathy.

    love
