Ever since Ellie and I filled up the bird feeder Jack has been stalking those poor birds outside our front door. This morning especially Jack was whining and nagging me more than normal to go outside. I'd let him out for a bit, make him come in, and he was pacing back and forth until I let him out again. Well, after about the 4th letting out, this is what he brought for me. Dropped it on the front porch. He was licking it, but didn't dare eat it this time (which is good b/c last time he ate a bird we had a high vet bill, plus the cost of his schooling teaching him not to eat birds). You've proven you're gaining in self control. Daddy would be so proud, Nasty Little Stalker!
