I just watched...

My brother had to put down his shepard this fall (about 6 months too late, IMO).

Next day, he replaced it with a pound pooch, advertised as a boxer.

It's a pit bull, pretty clear.

Bro lives out in the sticks of West Jersey. The new dog has a thing for turtles, he says he sees them around, all white shells. Apparently the dog captures the turtles & gnaws on them until the color is all worn off. She's killed some, too. Is this not turtle terrorism, I ask you?

Had to remove the body from the scene of the crime this morning.

Pretty big critter.

No sign of any injury to Zora, but this sort of thing makes me nervous about disease.

My dog Smokey and his sister Sabrina (roommates dog) are always after the animals out here, rabbits, coons, ground squirrels. Makes me worry about the foxes and coyotes that are out here. They also get a big kick out of the birds...they actually killed a duck and left it on the back deck.

Albert's cat Bella, after about 11 months of hissing and swatting at me whenever I walked by, has taken quite a liking to me. So much so that she now brings me any mice that she catches.... alive and in good health. She used to kill them and leave the mouse heads at the bottom of the basement stairs, but now she apparently feels the need to share her treat with me. Thanksgiving weekend, she ran upstairs with one in her mouth and dropped it on my feet, at which point it ran up my leg.

Now, I'm not at all scared or grossed out by mice, but having one dropped on your foot and run up your leg at 11pm is a bit startling. Bella, of course, thinks it's playtime.

Dogs are such carnivores...a few months ago my 4 lb Yorkie brought in a baby bird she had apparently killed. Seemed pleased to bring it to me as a gift.

It is a gift. Whenever Bella catches a mouse, I always praise her and brush her a bit. They are doing their best to show you their appreciation or at least trying to do a "Look what I made for you in school Dad!". You should never scold an animal for this.

Yeah... that's what it is. My sister was horrified; it kind of shattered the 'purse pooch' image. The thing I love about Yorkies is that they are terriers--Ginger has the strong personality and intensity I've seen in other terrier breeds that I'm familiar with (Westies, Aussies, Silkys, Cairns), so not a delicate little docile dog..

My cats get outside and kill a bird every now and then...

Kind of nice to know that they want to do something nice for you, even if it is a dead bird on a doorstep.

One memorable event from probably 25 years ago I rememeber from Ohio...one of our German Shepherds came up to the back door, pawing at the door to get my Mom's attention. She had a big dead groundhog in her mouth, covered in green muck from around the lake...standing there, wet, wagging her tail looking happy to give Mom a gift.. :)

My GF's cat hates me. Its too the point where he chases me if I walk around, or he'll go up on the frig and attack my head as I walk by. Funny a 15 lb cat attacking the 6'4" 390 lb ape.

Normally cats like me. I have a cat. But he's still a killer at heart. He's lived indoors all his life, yet when a few mice came in for the winter a few years ago, he caught them... which I was glad about. Unfortunately, cats will kill for sport... so properly fed outdoor cats really need a bell, to give the birds a chance.

My dog at the other house loves rabbits... but he is so clueless, I don't see how he catches them. I've seen him walk right by them. But he's a good bunny-home-wrecker. He loves walking around the yard with a baby bunny in his mouth. Recently, as my mother was letting him in the house, he was smirking... he had THREE baby bunnies in his mouth that he wanted to bring inside. Needless to say, hilarity ensued as mom de-bunnied the dog.

I have mixed feelings about his bunny habits... but the yard is overrun with them, so I have to accept it.

That's a lot of bunnies...
