Post by Harrie on Sat Apr 05, 2008 1:11 pm

Awww - just stood gazing out the kitchen window and saw a tiny birdy gathering up all the chicken down and feathers for it's nest. Soooo cute with it's big feathery moustache! Very Happy Nice to be helpful without even trying isn't it!!

Try Stripping (pulling out long coat) a border terrier, the garden gets covered in dog hair.

But the following morning it is all gone, have seen all types of birds taking it.

I think that the word must go round.

Nice nest smelling of dog!

Thanks

They also strip the coat off my mate's horse - now that's a bit naught as it makes him sore.

Yes he is, He's doing very good. I was at my grandmas Lake house and I saw him running all around the drive way. I looked around for three days trying to find his mother or father and I didn't see any signs of them. Hes more trusting than my mallards. He'll eat straight from my hand and sleep on my shoulder. I should go ahead and just take a profile picture just like andys.
