Look what I found
It's spring in Texas which means changeable weather and lots of wind. Last night, we had strong winds that likely knocked this "friend" out of a nest and onto my territory in the back yard. Mom and Dad were ready for bed and I brought in this bird alive to the bedroom! What a great bird dog, right? Well, when I softened my mouth grip and showed my new "friend" to my Mom, the bird took the opportunity to scoot under their bed. For some reason, Mom left the room with Laz. Moses, Dad, and I needed to do something. Dad lifted up the bed and I grasped the bird in my mouth and took it to our bed in the family room to show Mom and Lazarus. We were playing together and having fun until the bird just stopped moving. I tried to nudge it, but it had fallen asleep. Dad took my photo with the bird, and then he traded me some jerky for the bird. He went outside with it and I didn't see it again. Anyway, it was a fun night.
