The dove is missing!
For two days it bounce around my backyard without flying.
I fed it corn, left water for it, and set up a hay bale to offer shade and protection from my door.
And now it is gone.
My hope became horror after I saw the feathers…lots of feathers, signs of a struggle.
Later while walking our small dog, fecal evidence betrayed our toy predator.
Our Shitzu was more Sun Tzu, a warrior bird dog, not a palace pet.
Mourn, rest, stay away from the kind of chaos that can attack us when we are in a vulnerable state.
