I have yet to read the article but can you tell me where Stock Doves and Rock doves / pigeons are known to hybridise? I’ve only ever heard of it by pigeon fanciers forcing a male bird (from a variety of options) on to a female Stock dove in captivity. I suppose it’s in the article. Best read that first I suppose.
When the family get to read the discussion on here about this tragedy I think they’ll be additionally dismayed by some of the discussion in this thread. Some of you might want to consider editing or deleting your comments.
If you’d ever seen the results of loose objects inside a car after a crash you’d think about securing that heavy object. Seatbelts help. If you can’t secure it wear a helmet.
In other slightly more happy news we have a new puppy. It’s not like we needed one.
First time we have ever bought a dog. All the others are rescues. She’s an English Bull terrier, as yet without a name. We’ve been trying to rescue one for years but without success.
That’s sounds hard to cope with. I’ve been there with rescue dogs in the past. I’ve only once given up (incompatibility with one of our other dogs ) but there were other dogs and other days when I really wanted to. Stick with it. You’re doing the right things.
Get a bucket and stop whining.
That duck flea thing, fuxxake, the inflammation only really starts when the little buggers tunnel their way out again. You also realise that the couple of dozen last night is a couple of hundred now. All over.
Had my first encounter with duck fleas today.
Lovey warm gravel pit, right out in the middle when the itching started. Then had a 2 hour motorbike trip in leathers and sweated horribly and now I’m covered in bites. What a miserable thing.
Dibs ray bans. DM sent.
