QUOTE OF THE DAY (OR MORE): "No, no. You don't understand. This is an '89 Calico. I'm pretty sure that exceeds the Kelly Blue Book value. The cat's totaled." --A comedian whose name I forget talking about a vet who presents a $3,000 bill for a 12-year-old cat

Tweet!

Tweet - (noun) What Sophie received when she ate the 3 tiny baby birds in the newly discovered birds' nest in the barberry bush.

  1. You know that snuffling, snorting laugh people make when they laugh at something they shouldn't really be laughing at?

    Yeah. I just laughed like that.

  2. Oh no! If this happened at our house, my children would need therapy.

  3. I'm the one who needs therapy. lol. We had just discovered the nest (while pruning shrubs) because Soph kept nosing in the bush. We even brought the neighbors over to show them how cute the three little baby birds were with their tiny mouths wide open... and then... sniff sniff... I was around the side of the house and I hear the husband yelling: "NO, SOPHIE !!! NOOOOooooo...."

    It was very, very sad. :(

  4. I loved Tweety Bird when I was a kid. Still do, honestly. This tale is haunting. I always thought it'd be Sylvester to do the damage. What a sad turn of events.

  5. I'm really really hoping that Sophie is a dog and not a child.

  6. Oh NOOOOO! I'm so sorry. :(

    I think the baby bird stories are the worst. I feel for you!

  7. I blame Twitter.

    I knew it was evil when it revealed my uncool ways and techtardedness.

    Now this.

  8. Oh no I'm thankful Sonny (my dog) doesn't like birds but my cat growing up did that to me all the time. I always freaked out.

    I am laughing still though because I thought this post was going to be about twitter and I had to read it a few times to actually get it.

  10. Oh bad girl! Our old dog Judge whose been gone for almost two years was terrible with wildlife. Sometimes I would have to hold back my affection for several hours because I couldn't accept that he had just killed a mouse or otter (yes - he could catch baby otters while swimming:(

  11. My hand is still over my mouth forcing me to type with one hand. Are there even words for this? How about a Hallmark card?

    I have to admit I did laugh. I know it was wrong to laugh. It's not funny. It's very, very sad but it is what it is. Having had my dogs do something similar once I can relate. Poor "Life As I know It" is so confused and concerned I'm sure!

    I'm feeling all shades of twisted for laughing!

    Hopefully Sophie will have tweet dreams tonight. I know, I know, that's in poor taste too...

  12. What's worse, is once a German Shepherd has tasted bird blood, it will crave it for the rest of his days. That's what I heard on National---er, NatGeo.

  13. you can take the dog out of nature, but you can't take nature out of the dog. In the end their instincts will surface. I'm sure she enjoyed her snack. (Can you tell I grew up on a farm, and in the wild)

Please feel free to let me know what you think - especially if you like it. If not, please reconsider (just kidding!) I can take constructive criticism! Really I can...
