Do you know who these birds are above? They're black and blue, with hints of green and purple, with bright eyes but no name-tags. All help welcome.
This one below is a garden-variety but still charming American Robin.
This, of course is Lindy, about to walk right past a rabbit without paying it no nevermind nohow. See the rabbit in the upper part of the photo?
And here is Lindy, walking past said rabbit without a glimmer of recognition. There was a time when Lindy would have thought "food!" and dragged her poor, unsuspecting daddy across these weeds and rocks in her excitement. But no longer. Lindy is Owned, she is no longer a stray. She was picked up by the SPCA, rescued by SOS Dog Rescue in Redcliff, Alberta, and adopted by his and hers truly, her devoted slaves. Food comes to her as dog biscuits, dog food (regular and dental-care) plus zucchini, broccoli, rutabaga, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, peas and apples. Even 1/8 orange from her daddy's breakfast.
Chase a rabbit? Very unlikely. But, oh, those little gophers by the BMX Bike Track, running across the road toward the public swimming pool. Sometimes she'll chase them, for old time's sake.
