Oh yes I know where your coming from. Last Saturday my son was playing with the dogs on the back lawn and called me over to have a look at the back of the decking so over I went and there was a bird who must have hurt itself and not able to get away ofcourse the dogs on seeing us looking had to take a peep now in fairness to Roge he just cocked his head to one side and if all be told didnt know what to make of this little cherping bundle then 5 seconds later in charges Spike and made a bee line for the bird my son managed to put his foot out to block him,the bird started making an awfull racket and somehow made its was to the hedge Spike went tearing after it and I was standing there SCREAMING at my son to stop him he just managed to get Spikes back leg and pull him back. I dont know what became of the bird as we decided to leave the lawn in the off chance that its mom would come to the rescue,the poor little thing was so frightened and squaking like crazy.
When we went inside Roge got a treat for being good and Spike on the other hand spent a while on the naughty step.
