I hope you enjoyed the photos of this beautiful backyard visitor.
The following is a link about this bird’s life history. (http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/mourning_dove/lifehistory).
Please see related links (at the bottom of this page) for interesting posts (and pretty photos) about the Mourning Dove!
Thanks for visiting my blog, dogkisses!
A note to those of you who are aware that my sweet dog, Ruthie Mae, has been recovering from a severe GI upset that happened after our end of summer camping trip.
I’m happy to report that Ruthie is doing well!
She is still on a prescription diet, Hill’s ID, which is expensive, but has helped tremendously in her recovery. I’m working on transitioning her to a more normal diet by adding boiled chicken and rice, along with pumpkin, to the ID food.
I’ve been working on a post about HGE, which is a rare and mysterious condition in dogs and is the diagnosis Ruthie received in early September. I’m not used to writing about such factual information and I’m tired these days, so it’s taking me a while to finish the post. I wanted to at least offer an update.
Thanks to all of you who have expressed your kindness and concern. Ruthie and I are most grateful!
