About 5:00pm I was standing near the door and saw a flash of gray...moving around in the yard. Flash the wonder dog was laying on the ground asleep, and a little Tufted Titmouse hopped on him, tugged at some hair and flew off. Flash sat up just about the time she flew. Now I know that birds gather hair to line nests, but that is the first time I've ever saw a bird take hair from a live animal.
At about 8:40pm Julie called, said a bug was on Petey's lip, and she couldn't get it off. Knowing that Julie knows what ticks are, I wondered what kind of bug. She brought him over, and it was a large bug that had attached itself to his lip and wouldn't turn loose. I finally held him while she got a tissue and it came off. I came away with a good scratch on my arm, lol, and Petey went to the food dish and snacked on food.
Two things I've never had happen and both in one evening.
