A few months ago I wrote a post titled Dear Neighbor, Please Stop feeding The Birds Bread.
The reason behind that post was because my very thoughtful neighbor feeds the birds and other wildlife in our area, but this summer he was feeding the birds whole pieces of bread and the birds were dropping the bread in our yard and Sherman and Leroy were eating it.
My dogs don’t need the extra carbs and besides that the bread was stale and I just didn’t want them eating stale bread because it grossed me out.
Anyway, after that post I never really thought about it again, until last week when we were in the deep freeze and I started to worry about the birds. I don’t why, but I did, and to be honest I began to panic a little bit about it being cold and the birds freezing to death and not having any food because I suck as a bird feeder and I had absolutely nothing to give them.
Then I remembered that my neighbors are awesome and that they probably had plenty of food to give the birds. Then I really began to freak out because I thought about the post I wrote about the bread and how I never saw it again after I wrote that post and maybe my neighbor really did read dog blogs and completely and totally stopped feeding the birds.
Then I was going to be responsible for the death of hundreds of birds.
The pressure got so bad that I just had to go outside and see if the birds had food.
To my relief, the bird feeder was fully stocked with lots of goodies (no bread) and a few birds were enjoying the feast, so thank you my dear neighbor, for taking the time to feed the birds, however, and I realize I may be pushing my luck here, but the corn cob makes me a little nervous with Mr. Squirrel hanging around waiting to snatch it. Mr. Squirrel may be one of those clumsy squirrels and drop that corn cob in my yard potentially leading to a foreign body obstruction.
It’s just a thought to ponder.
Jen. Your neighbor with the 2 big brown dogs who like to eat whatever the birds drop 😉
