My Child Has Blood On His Paws

So you remember that cute scare crow that I showed you on Sunday? Well, it lasted all of two days here at the ranch. I came home to this...

The head was never found. I think the culprit was trying to stop the identification process. Or the cause of death. But I think both are pretty evident!

There is just something about fall decorations and my animals. If you've been around for awhile, you may remember this little incident. I thought I took the necessary precautions to ensure the crow's safety. He was placed outside the yard fence. The dogs are only allowed outside the yard in our presence. Somehow when the husband allowed them out this morning, he didn't see the perpetrator grab the victim. He swears it was an inside job. Otherwise, the victim was hid until the husband left the house. It's all a little fishy if you ask me. RIP not scary enough scare crow

On a side note, I changed the format of the blog. I looks fine at my home computer but my office computer has the side bar and body cut off. How many of you are having issues with seeing it correctly?

It's working on mine. ? Sorry about the scarecrow. He was adorable.

Looks good to me... I want to come visit your house next time you decorate for fall... I'll even post myself with a camera to catch the culprit but it looks to me like "the others" have found a patsy for this crime!

Don't you love it! Diesel is a little sneak? My little sneak I can't even trust and he is out of his teens - just yesterday my gardening gloves stayed put for most of the day and then bingo one is gone!

I think Diesel might have been framed:)

Dusty Devoe said...

I love the picture of Diesel with the evidence in his mouth!

Linda said...

Not Diesel!!! sorry I lol'ed , our Skeeter dog was known as "Shredder" for an awfully long time!

Shirley said...

On my computer the sidebar was cut off until I went full screen, which fixed the problem.
Deisel is too funny, truckin' along with the evidence in his mouth! Husband's story sounds fishy to me.....

Paint Girl said...

I love catching them in the act! Even though if you don't catch them, they get that guilty look on their face! I can always tell when my dogs have done something wrong!
Deisel is so cute!

They are so funny sometimes. Puppies will be puppies! When I got my australian shepard, we had to make sure there was nothing on the floor when we left and he had to be gated on the back porch or when we got home he would have everything chewed to pieces no matter what it was!

Farmchick said...

Are you sure your poor puppy wasn't set up??? ;)

Blog looks perfect on my computer!

Stop over for a visit soon. :)

bekah said...

Practicing for the real thing is what I think:) It's cut off slightly on mine but just a tad.

Paula said...

Cut off on my slightly too.

Poor scare crow!

Jocelyn said...

We have had a similar incident like that that we call the
HAM SAMMICH MYSTERY.

Poor Scarecrow.... RIP

Tatersmama said...

Awww... poor little scarecrow!
But I think Diesel may have been trying to put it back together after the girls got at it.. what do you think?

But dogs? Dogs are like kids. You can't have anything nice until they're grown up and even then, I always wonder if it was worth it anyway.
