My poor Hollie......

the guy downstairs phoned to ask how to do something late the other night..having been on the phone for about 5 minutes, i said it would be easier if i just came down, left the door on the catch and parrot perching on cupboard door where she always sits while i'm on pc.....went down a few minutes later could hear this strange noise, i thought it was a fox outside, then i realised, i run up stairs shouting to him...where's ur dog.....at that point the dog came running out of me flat.....there was red tails feathers everywhere and grey ones too....poor little hollie frightened to deaf in the corner on the floor. He has a staf and soooooooo bloody lucky he didn't kill her....her feathers were wet, so he had defo had his mouth around her and she had a little cut on her body underneath her wing...i was in bits.....the young fella couldn't apologize enough.....he said i'm gonna go and beat him now.....i said don't u dare, he's a dog, it's natrual for him to chase anything that moves...just so lucky he didn't do any real damage. it wasn't the dogs thought it was ours, they are our animals and we are responsible for them, we shouldn't of left our doors open. Anyway stayed at home with her the next day cos i worried about her going into shock........got her checked by vet, which he paid half of...Thankfully 2 days later she was back on the window sil whistling again and seems to be fully recovered now. She has seen the dog from the window playing in the garden and seemed to be ok by that, she wasn't fretting.

anyway, just thought i'd share that with u and to anyone who has any kind of pet, don't leave the door on the catch no matter for how long. close it and take ur keys....lol

Glad she's ok

dog should be put to sleep, what will it be next a child? i love staffies but if it has done this to a parrot, it wouldnt think twice about a child.

Is is great to hear she is alright, I let my cat outside a few months ago and someone poisoned him so hearing good animal outcomes cheers me up.

omg...thats a bit harsh isn't it.......she came out alive...the dog was toying with her, yeah he could of killed her but didn't..it's a dog's natural instinct to chase something like a bird...or cat...
