Birds of a Feather

We had stopped for a hike when we noticed something on the ground.

Time to get in close for an investigation.

Oops - some pup beat us all to it.

    As a connoisseur of a broad variety of fine outdoor edibles, I have but one word…


    with love from the Bleu… and the Reufus

    Or…some kitty beat you to it!

    Interesting, and lovely, what houndstooth4 woofed. My human had heard that finding a feather meant a message of Peace. Of course, my human’s brother then asked what about people who work in an aviary.

    Silly bird for leaving that feather to entice you guys.

    They say feathers are a sign that someone in Heaven is thinking about you. Perhaps it was a sign! 🙂

    How cool that your birdies leave presents! Collar decoratiom perhaps?

    Hehe…”some pup beat us all to it.” Too funny!

    I noticed some bird feathers in our back yard last week, but I don’t think Riley had caught one. Probably just feathers falling off of the birds. I also found some clumps of fur that weren’t Riley’s or Chloe’s…bunnies maybe? We get a lot of rabbits in our neighborhood and Riley caught herself a baby bunny when she was about 3 months old–ick!

    Happy Monday!

    Wonder what happened to the rest of the feathers?
