Birds, Bird Food and Dogs - do they mix?
Before getting my two little furbabies, I had tons of birds, many different kinds because I had several feeders up. I was the crazy bird lady in the neighboorhood and would feed and watch my birds all the time.
Since getting Lucy last Fall, I have not fed my birds and I covered the pond this last winter to discourage the birds from gathering at the ol' watering hole.
I am missing my birds though. I can hear them but I cannot see them. Is it safe for my puppies (who seem to put everything in their mouths) to be around birds and their spilled food/shells? i feed sunflower, thistle, and safflower seeds and peanuts, and then of course have the suiet and hummingbird foods too.
Thoughts? Experiences? Can I have the best of both worlds or do I need to limit my love to the furry puppies?
