This cute little Lovebird was rescued from the jaws of Lucy, my Miniature Pinscher, in the garden on Wednesday. It was a bit bedraggled and bloody after it's 'experience' with Lucy, so we gently cleaned it up and put it in a tiny holding cage with food and water. I wasn't sure it would survive, but in two days it's perked up amazingly well and today I bought it a new cage and all the 'trimmings'...
This is the fourth Lovebird or budgie that Lucy has found in our garden....sadly the others didn't fare so well. :( She is an amazing hunter and can spring quite high in the air so if a bird has the misfortune to fly quite low over the garden, I'm afraid it's fate is probably sealed!
I have no idea where the birds come from but this one seems quite tame. I did enquire with a couple of neighbours. I sometimes wonder if someone is putting them in our garden when they no longer wish to keep them, because they know muggins here will look after them and buy them everything they need!!!!
Brendan wants to call it Rocky as it survived a 'fight' with Lucy.....but what sort of name is that for a sweet little Lovebird!!!!
