Terrorized Thursday: Is The Bird Gone Yet?

(Editor's note: We've decided Dennis seems to be just too frightened of the parakeet, so at the moment they are having a trial separation.)

  1. Oh, no, Dennis, we can’t believe you are in the closet over a tiny bird. Aren’t you a bird dog? Perhaps you could try Buddy’s solution for dealing with annoying high-pitched sounds (such as sirens or the answering machine) – howl! That would shut the bird up. Works with the sirens and answering machine every time. Try it, Dennis. It might work.

  2. Interesting. When we were watching the Westminster Dog Show the other night, they didn’t say anything about how parakeets were the eternal nemesis (nemeses?) of Vizslas. Of course, they didn’t mention anything about the Vizsla’s desire to go on Great Adventures, or how they look dashing in fedoras, so we’re thinking we only got an abbreviated description from the man on the teevee. That said, I think you’ll be pretty safe in that closet. Besides, there looks like there are all sorts of things to chew on in there. Just saying…

  3. Maybe it wasn’t REALLY a bird.. Perhaps it was a Squirrel in bird’s feathers.
    Ok bye.

  4. Hey Dennis!
    Wow, that must be some scary bird. Mom says maybe it’s a pteradactyl or something instead. Maybe Frankie’s right and it’s a squirrel in disguise. Either way, you might want to poke your head out and if this bird’s small…just give him a big ole Dennis bash! Well, maybe that would get you in the doghouse with the peeps. Run Tippi!!!

  5. Oh gosh Dennis. A parakeet. really??? Scooter will come and vanquish him for you. Or Sunny, or perhaps our new sundog. He may be overkill tho, Scooter is callin his military connections to get over and take care of it.
    (I know-we have been quiet so long. We are trying to remedy that. We have missed your venshurs! And Scooter would like to walk the moon again. he says he can still get that shuttle!!!)
    Cmon over and see the 3rd Texas Sundog if you would like!
    Hugs
    Sunny and the rest of us

  6. Um, so Dennis? I sure wouldn’t let this get around. You’ll never hear the end of it at the 2011 Vizsla Hootenanny.

  7. Why does dada assume that you are confused? He has written enough scary books to know that sometimes things are not what they seem. I believe that you are warning your family to beware the bird. If only they would listen.

  10. Oh Dennis! All that fuss over a little bird? I’m guessing it’s unlikely that he’ll lead an army of space trolls to attack you!

    You have been watching The Birds, haven’t you?!

  11. Dennis … your closet has way more stuff in than mine does. But, at least I am not hiding from a small little bird. I am hiding from everything else!! Your friend, Clover.

  12. Listen, Dennis, just tell Tucker it is an eating bird, and they are very tasty, and then hide his dish so when he gets hungry it will be Bye, Bye Birdie and fast! Tucker doesn’t waste anytime when he sees food, does he? Bird=Food. Simple as that.

    Cheerup!

    Kisses,

  14. A parakeet?? Really?? Sorry, I should try to be more understanding. heh heh heh I adopted a parakeet once from the SPCA and he could give one nasty bite when he wanted to so I can understand your fear. 😉

  15. I think Dennis is wise to look for shelter. Birds are like miniature bomber aircrafts. Birddroppings flying around carry bacterias. And that’s how dogs get red eye.

  16. Dennis- My mom discovered the solution. Her verification word over at rainfield’s blog today was fryakeet. This should solve your problem. Maggie the Vizsla.

  17. Wow, that looks like one of those Where’s Waldo puzzles. Are you doing a Where’s Dennis book?
    And for Pete’s sake, what’s all this talk about you & Tucker being hunting dogs? YOU’VE GOT A CAT! Cats know how to handle birds. Especially small birds that are beneath the notice of serious bird hunting/retrieving dogs.
