Then to top things off, as I was heading out the door with a bag to scoop out the dead fish, I was greeted by the image of the dog grabbing onto a baby chick that must have fallen to the ground as it was learning to fly. I tried to get it away from her, and it did seem to be barely alive and letting out a sad peep the first time I managed to pry her jaws away, but before I could even move to grab it she whipped around and snatched it up again. By the time I could pry it loose again, the bird was just dead.
So not only did I get to throw away my dead fish, but I also got to then throw away a dead baby bird as well that was just learning to fly, and as I carried the bag around to the front of the house I got to sit and listen to the worried cheepings of the parent birds looking for their baby.
I'm starting to just feel like this is the House of Death already.
*sigh* Well, back to my weekly reviews, then to work. Joy.
