Intruder Alert!

Last Monday, Lady was still at work and Man was at home cooking dinner. He heard growling.  Hailey was standing in front of the fireplace growling. The Man went down to discover a bird was in it.

He put Hailey in the guest room, opened the patio door, then opened the fireplace. The little bird went right outside.

Wednesday morning, Canada Day, a day we could sleep in, Hailey was barking and barking and barking. Seems our bird friend was back again. Man did the same thing and the bird went right out again.

On Sunday, while Lady was at work, that silly bird was back. The Man heard it this time. Instead of flying right out, the bird took the tour of the house. We have 40+ foot high ceilings in front of the fireplace and the bird flew up. Eventually Man was able to catch it in a tea towel in the kitchen.

We are going to have to get up on the roof and see if we can figure out why this bird keeps getting into the fireplace.

Hailey says all this adventure proves her point that birds are bad (she barks at them on the law every day).

I expect a medal and extra cookies for keeping my family safe from the intruding bird!

    All business Hailey!!! One wonders if there is an attempt at nesting going on? Some chicken wire over the stack could be all that is required... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Those darn birds!!!!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  6. we are thinking birdie has decided that is a good nest spot

  7. You DO deserve a Bird Alert Award fur SURE Hailey...

  8. Hmm....if your screen on top of the chimney fell off maybe the bird has come in to nest or HAS a nest? But if your flue is closed it wouldn't be able to get in your fireplace box.......it's a MYSTERY - hope you can solve it though............!

    Hugs, Sammy

  9. Surely they are planning something to reward you for your ffearless actions!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  10. Sounds like that birdie has invented a new Extreme Sport!

  11. I bet there is a nest there, or...the bird wants to move in and is letting you know that in a not-so-subtle way lol

  12. You would think that Haley barking at the bird would make it stay away!

  13. We doggies would have gone nuts with a birdie flying around our house! Ghostwriter has a story about a bat that was flying around in the nursing home hallway!!!!!!! Yes, it's true! She had to throw a blanket over it to catch it, and the other nurse hit it with a broom. Afterwards, they felt bad because it was really such a small animal. But they couldn't have it flying into patient's rooms. We're glad your birdie got out OK.

  14. Silly birds! If that happened here, mes would has eated it!

  15. That's not a very smart bird, is it??

  16. Good job Lee for protecting the family from the bad bird. I also need to tell you, your fur is so pretty and silky. I know I've told you that before but I really mean it.

    Aroo to you,

  17. We once had birds make a nest in our chimney. Could that be the reason? We put a metal grate over the top to stop it.

    Good job, Hailey!!! You are up to the task. The one time we had a wild animal in our house (a ground squirrel), our dogs ran and hid in a room on the opposite side of the house. They're going to kill me for telling that secret!

  18. Guess that birdie likes your house!!


  19. What would your family do without you? I mean really, that bird was out for blood, there can be no doubt about it and you not only saved everyone once BUTT THREE TIMES!
