Magpies are ridiculous! Our dog is 16 years old and is deaf, blind, incontinent and has a bit of dementia, but adorable none the less. I have to leave the kitchen sliding door open for him otherwise he cannot decide if he wants to go out or come in and will stand and yap on whichever side of the door he is at wanting to get to the other side. By leaving the sliding door open he can wander in and out as he pleases. The magpies and bandicoots have started eating his dog biscuits, so I now put his bowl of biscuits inside in the kitchen so the magpies and the bandicoots cannot eat them. But, now the magpies have realised the biscuits are inside and they are coming inside after the biscuits. I spend a lot of time cleaning up the dogs pooping and peeing and disinfecting the kitchen floor, now the magpies are coming in and pooping on the floor too!
I was sitting working in the office when I heard a ruckus a few minutes ago and went to see what on earth it was. A magpie was in the kitchen and in a panic because it could not find its way out again. I was afraid it was going to smash a tall green glass objet d’art that was my birthday present two years back. So I opened the sliding doors up wide and left the room to let it calm down and hopefully find its own way out of the room.
What with the dog pooping and peeing all over the kitchen, and now the magpies pooping in the kitchen as well, I just can’t win!!
