    Fark me!

    I was just browsing the forums when my wife started screaming. Seems our puppy managed to somehow catch a bird. He was kind enough to bring it inside and lay it on our bed. Ewww.

    Well, that's what happens when you feed them turkey at Thanksgiving. They start to get ideas...

    My Cat dexter brought in a pigeon once, still flapping. feathers all over. some of our beagles would eat birds in the yard, including large pigeons. THAT was gross.

    When I was a kid, I wanted a beagle so baddddd. So we went to a breeder and looked over the candidates- they all looked great, except for this little guy who proudly brought us a dead pigeon to our feet, looked up at us, bayed in his loudest puppy voice, and raised his paw. OK, now who wouldn't want that dog? Had him about 8 wonderful years before he went loony.

    Found a decapitated pigeon in our dog's run one time. Not that horrifying till you begin to speculate on what happened to the head...

    same instincts

    although it has been said a dog that hunts is usually bored senseless so maybe hanging a tyre swing up and a few doggy toys might help distract the puppy

    edit - hunts by itself that is

    My dog gets birds all the time and other critters.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Brian, while I admit it's a bit nasty, your dog sees this gesture on his part as a huge sign of respect and love. See it as a gift that hopefully he'll only give you once

    A couple of months ago, my brother (who still lives at home) left the front door open for an hour, because it was a hot day. When he returned to close the door, he found a magpie walking around in the kitchen! Naturally, he tried to get it to move towards the door, but the poor bird panicked and started flapping around, and at some point became so nervous that it started to poop all over the place. Took the rest of the afternoon to clean everything up after he finally got the bird out...

    Hmm. He has 2 other dogs his size to play with, along with a box of toys. I think he just found it and wanted to hide it from the others.

    fair enough - I know when staying on friends farms the only time the dogs didn't go hunting at night was when they'd been exhausted during the day. If not then it was pliers and yelps in the mornings.

    When my wife was a kid, her dog was playing with something and she thought he had a tennis ball. It turned out to be a squirrel head. She was less than happy.

    Brian, welcome to my world. In the past year my one cat has brought me about 150 critters, all with the heads off of them.

    Good thing you don't live in my neighborhood. Your cat would take a trip to the river in a tote sack.

    Our family dogs (all german pointers) were, sigh, awesome hunters - which unfortunately carried over into regular family life.

    Baby ducks (alive and we let go at the swamp with a totally mad mother quacking at us), baby rabbits - few years of those - poor little quivery little dinky things - I know they didn't make it when Dad supposedly made the trip out to the field to their "den" to take them back to the mother. One of the family's dogs got into a skunk - ohhh that was bad, Dad was able to shoosh the little smelly black & white cutie off into the field ...

    They (family dogs) were just doing what they were bred too - and that my father reinforced by taking them hunting. And of course, us four kids were soooo not happy with it.

    hehe, my ex has a huuuuge big black manx cat that is a dog-cat. Huge and strong. Ex had (note the word HAD) a mouse problem in his old farm house he's rehabing ... his "dog-cat" likes to lay the mouse/vole bodies either in his foot wide water bowl, on the ex's bed or right on top of the kitchen table. hehe, HEY, LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!!!

    No pets, just squirrels, mice, rabbits, frogs, chipmunks, etc.

    It's just her natural instinct.

    Reading through this just reminded me that when we were kids in Oklahoma, a neighbors basset hound would go hunting and bring his kill and lay it on our back doorstep. We could only surmise that he had a crush on our manchester terrier.
