Feather and Bill are back

This is really toasting my biscuits, Feather and Bill are here every single day now. They show up at about dinner time and crazy momma, runs about abandoning our meal preparation to go shred bread for them.

Today they got the nonna involved. Now that takes chutzpah. Think about it. She is our guest, and they put her to work. I mean... look. I treat my nonna right. I give her the best belly rubbing opportunities. I keep her company. She is MY nonna after all. And to see her spring into action to go feed Feather and Bill.... well it was a shot into the heart.

Of course we have stepped up our campaign. Of course we isolate them and confine them to the pool and of course we bark etc. BUT they come anyway. They must be stupid. They don't get the message. Ok. I admit. If that woman would stop feeding them, maybe they would hear the message. DRAT.

And you know what? The tailed rat you call squirrel... he eats duck leftovers. I am afraid my house is turning into a zoo and soon I will have to charge admission.

What's a civilized 4 legged to do???

You might just have to go out there and join them, 'vie. I know it's beneath you, but it doesn't look like they are going away so you at least want them on your side should anymore animals show up.

Maybe you should beat them at their game and invite a bunch of YOUR friends over. They think your pool is their home, so have 4-legged pool party and chase them away for good!

So many critters and creatures ... I think you're doing your job with the surrounding by the pool and barking. What more could you do? So you gotta live and let live.

Makes for a more interesting day!

I think you need to show those dumb ducks who's boss and beat them at their own game. They've claimed your swimming pool as their home. So, have a pool party of 4-leggeds to gang up on them and make enough noise barking to make them leave.

How are you, JD, and the Wendy possibly going to enjoy your swims this summer with them there?! They need to go!
