When I got home this evening and took the boys out for retrieves... there she was with what remained of yesterday's black bird.

Politely plucking and *pftttting* feathers out of her mouth; the bird's head was noticeably absent and I think it was minus a wing, maybe a leg or two? I really didn't want to investigate that closely so I told her to "take it away, Meg". She did. Soft mouthing it to a spot about ten feet to the south, whereupon she happily rolled around on it on her back.

Methinks a certain young cat of mine had something to do with all of this. And she's not talking.

Ewwww. Poor birdie. I'd have thrown it as far away, out of their reach, as possible.
I know Megan. She was "tending" to the bird. None of the other dogs will even have a niff on anything like that in the yard. For some reason (happily) they show no interest whatsoever.

I would not put my dogs at any sort of health risk, but I will take every opportunity to learn more about their inherent behaviours. It is rare that this sort of thing takes place and so... seize the day.
