Wild Bird Wednesday



Crows Rule ...


My little family of crows show up every morning to make sure they get their share of the morning feast.  Then the rest of the day they come and go protecting my feeder birds from predators ... smart crows.

Izzi Speak


Rehabilitations

Rehabilitations ... now that's a bigs word for you.  My Mom shortens it and calls it rehabs which makes it easier to remembers, but no ones has explained to mes what it is supposed to means.   I just calls it hards work, because that is what it is to mes.

So Moms says, we has to goes to rehabs and I says okays, what's that?  She says it is to makes mes betters ... so where is the "we" in making "mes" better? So off we goes (I guess because she has to drives the the cars, she thinks its okays to say wes) and we goes to a clinics way fars away.

I meets a doctor there ... why is it that doctors all has to push and pokes at me.  Whys, if they are so goods, can't they just looks and me and says I knows whats to do.


 The Doctors assistants is goods ... she gives me Peanuts butter in a cups so I will sits still.  I know what she is ups to, buts, I likes peanusts butter so it worked.



 He tells my Moms, I needs hydros therapys.  So here we goes agains with the big words when he could have just said, Izzi needs to walks in the waters.

Well, I woulds never have thoughts that walkings in waters would be hards work, but guess whats, it is.  My little legs would gets very tireds, but I kept walkings because my Tech would gives me little tiny treates.  I figured I was goings to has to walks a longs way just to get enough to makes up one normals treat, so I did.  I walked and walked.

  Thens to adds insults to injuries, he says here are the exercises Izzi needs to do at homes.  It's not bads enough that I has to walks in waters twice a weeks, now I has to backward walks, sideways walks, figure eights and sit/stands at homes every days.
    Let me tells you all my friends out theres ... if you evers hears your Moms say the word surgeries, it is times to leaves homes because your lifes will be miseralbles all summers.  And, you think that is the worst of its? Listens to this ... I couldn't goes up stairs, couldn't plays Frisbees, couldn't dos agilitys and thens because I couldn't dos anythings they puts me on a diets.  Are you kiddings me? ... But, I has to says, I am gettings pretty strongs by now.  Maybe when I get strongs like I used to bes, I will gets to do what I wants to do, not just what the doctor says I has to do ... you think?

There is one goods thing ... I gets to takes long walks twice a days with my Moms and sometimes my Auntie Mints comes alongs.  We goes to the states park where there are lots of new smells for me to reads.  So I guess that is an up sides ...



I thinks I am goings to survives this in times.
Hopes none of my friends ever has to goes through this ... it's Doggy Hells :(

Good Fences



This is a rather elaborate fence in Hyde Park (Chicago).  It is difficult to see the detail so I have included some close ups.
