Default My carelessness today

Reporting myself here for being big time dumb. We have a yellow lab (she is older and overweight and very kind, but STILL a yellow lab). Yellow labs are bird dogs, if you know what I mean. Well, today.... she followed me into the bird room.. She's done that before when I'm there, and I politely ask her to leave. Well, today.. I closed the door when she was still in the room. When I came back, here are the birds about 3 feet away from her while she is snoring on the floor, taking a nap.
I cannot believe I did this. For what could have happened..... Good thing Mollie doesn't know she is a bird dog. Truthfully, I've always been more worried about our schnauzers than Mollie. BUT...
good girl, Mollie when your 'mom' is so out to lunch.
I'm beginning to think these birds are lucky to survive me.

Oh Honey, please don't beat yourself up too hard. Your dog is obviously a sweetheart and if you didn't know that on a deep level you'd NEVER have forgotten her in the bird room. Ever.

I'm glad it turned out that she was just happy to have a snooze with the birdies

That's a cute story lol...by bird dog do you mean hunting dog that retrieves shot ducks and stuff?

Labradors and goldren retrivers are super friendly and gentle and I think your dog could see that those birds are your pets and not food/something to ness with, also I'm sure she can see how gentle you are with them. That being said dogs are still animals so it's best to not take chances cus ya never know what they will do. That being said, I always love those videos online with birds feeding dogs or chasing dogs lol. I feel like my golden retriever would have gotten along fine with my bird, he was beyond gentle....got him a little pet monkey toy (same sizd as a parakeet) and it made a whining noise when you squeezed it and he thought it was real and crying and would start crying if some one else squeezed it and carried itas gently as possible in his mouth.

Would be cool to see my bird riding on my head in heaven

Oh Judy,

I can just imagine your reaction when you walked back in the room and found Mollie there sound asleep.

Thankfully, Mollie simply wanted to be near you (which is why she followed you there in the first place) and decided to take a little nap while waiting for you to return.

Judy, don't be so hard on yourself potentially yes it could of been a tragic event, but it wasn't And yes your budgies are lucky to be with you Mollie sounds like a sweetie, I have a 14 year old Golden Retriever named Molly, she is in fact scared of my birds

I can see how scared you could be!

My Lily, who is 6 years old, is terrified of the budgies' chirps, so she's only near their cage when I am. For the first month he was here, Bucky would just stare at them, but now he deems them boring. In fact, the accidental budgie chaser was Gizmo (RIP little man), who had wandered into the budgie-proofed area when I wasn't looking and chased poor little Gilbert!

You guys are great... Mollie is a gentle soul, and I love her for that. BUT... yes, it could have been awful. Those silly birdies were curious and checking out the huge snoring lump on the floor... LOL!!
Thanks for the support and stories.
Now those silly Schnauzers... I have one that is way too interested in the birds.. and he (Waylon) isn't allowed in that room... nope.

This sentence made me chuckle with understanding. I'm glad everyone behaved, the not-so-close-calls, can be just as scary as the close calls when your imagination gets racing.

Wow, Judy, what a scare you must have had! Good thing Mollie is a sweetie and didn't harm the fids, I think you were the most scared out of everyone.
Glad everything turned out okay and nothing happened. All's well that ends well, right?
