PostSubject: Gunner the perfect gentleman... arggg   Sat 23 Oct 2010, 12:07 pm

I know my pyrs have no prey drive which is great in so many instances but this is getting crazy already.

Every feeding.. the magpies come out. My gunner doesn't bark or chase them off his food. He just backs away as to say- your hungry here my friends I will share. He does this with any animal. One of the reasons he is fed separatly from all animals.

Now I am wageing war against the birds. I am sorry for those that love birds and magpies. But my dog would starve himselve to be the kind gentlemen. I will admit I am a terrible shot with magpies. Only because our pens are interconnected and my luck the .22 will bounce off something and hit one of my furbabies. I can shoot a moving coyote but much bigger target then those birds. I have tried putting drake in the pen that runs along side gunners pen. Because drake has a high prey drive for birds. It works but they sit in gunners pen and take their turns eating from his dish. I would sit out there. But gunner is the slowest eater I have every seen. I think he likes to savour his food. The hubby who is a much better shot with the birds is on days. We are trying to rig a trap for the birds. I am not talking one of 2. Their is at least 12 of them.

So I am waging a war with them. They don't come out until feeding time. I don't want to offend anyone who loves birds. But these things have become a major pain in my ass. Plus the fact that they cost me a fortune in dog food.

I just don't get gunner. He will chase coyotes and stray cats away... he knows which cat belongs but maybe the birds have become his friends.. LMFAO... Our cats do come into his pen and chase the birds away for a few minutes but they won't spend the morning their because gunner is just that slow in eating his food.

Evil you...Gunner is obviously a birdwatcher, enjoying his close up view and taking magpie notes to send to the Audubon society for their records. :lol:

BBE I wish.. but my pyrs are outside dogs. Plus it would take him all day to eat.. cause he would be whining to go outside.

Our house would be too hot for him....

today, I fed him in his dog house, plus it is rainning and snowing.. ( argg) so hopefully the birds stay away.

Tommorrow, we set up traps for the birds.

I know it sounds cruel but those birds can be cruel and quite mean to dogs and other animals. We haven't seen that yet. Only when jack went down... but I don't want to experience the damage their beaks can do......
