Sammy was a simple pup. A belly scratch, good food and a soft bed were about all he needed. He did have a nagging fetish for fresh robin meat, though... He loved the shimmer of the birds' wings as they flitted down to green grassy patches and pecked the ground for juicy worms. He loved the smells of their feathers, that caught the scent of everything on the wind. But, what he probably loved most was the saccadic movement of a bird's body when clenched in his sharp puppy teeth. Their incessant chirping made him bite a little harder until it all stopped. Substance. That's what he liked about robins with their crested, russet breasts. So much heartier than the bluejays... if only he could get his paws on a little salt, the meal would be perfection!
Today, however, Sammy hid behind the big black bbq machine in the back yard. Puppy drool leaked from his maw and his tummy rumbled. A fat, particularly smelly robin hopped around in the grass a few feet away from him. But, the bird was flanked on either side by four more robins. Sammy couldn't be sure, but were they birdy bodyguards? Their black pebble eyes darted in every direction and the fat one was the only one pecking around for worms. A chill ran along Sammy's flank and his fur raised high on his back. Did he dare it?
Hmmm. Perhaps I'll tell you another time. Hope you enjoyed. Have a great weekend!! And don't forget to add your best caption in the comments! (for the record, the robin fetish is completely fictional. My dog really is a sweet as he looks! Mostly...)
