Poor Captain....

We seem to have a problem... We have a dog... our cute, fluffy, very stinky, and pretty harmless. 55 pound Australian Shepherd, Captain. We have a big back yard that is populated by squirrels, bugs, and amongst other things... birds. It's fun to watch all the different kinds that come to hang out.

Well... washing dishes and looked out the window to see Captain running past... then again and again. It was kinda odd so I moved to get a better look. I see Captain run by again and then I see why... there is a bird that is chasing him! Yes... a bird chasing our dog!! I looked around to see if I could see a nest anywhere. I couldn't find anything so I thought it was just a bird trying to be macho....

Until I took Captain for a walk one morning... on our way back to the house we were attacked by the bird again!! As he was coming for the dog he took a swoop by me! {the neighbor got a great laugh from watching me jump out of the way of this bird} The husband didn't believe me, until he went out and saw the bird come after the dog.

Captain won't go out the front door unless someone comes with him.... The sad thing is, is that this isn't the first time he has been attacked by birds. When we were in North Carolina, there was a bird that would swoop down and peck at him when ever he went out. {poor dog}

I'm not sure what it is but this bird has it out for Captain.... {and all the dog does is run away... what ever works I guess.}

I'm sorry, but that's kind of funny. Maybe it's payback for all the animals he's chased over the years. Poor thing!
