We interrupt your program to bring you this fast-breaking TDB news flash. I'm your intrepid doggie reporter and Special Agent Chester L. W. Stephens. I'm live and on location in our back yard.
There's another exploded birdie in our yard! We found feathers everywhere!
The Double Doggie Homeland Security System was on the case immediately. Here is Special Agent Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens next to several scattered down feathers.
I'm investigating more feathery evidence.
Another rain storm is fast approaching. Ghostwriter gathered as many feathers as she could before the crime scene was obliterated. We'll conduct further research in our forensics lab later, but from the markings on the long wing and tail feathers, she determined this was an adult mourning dove. We're quite certain the perpetrator was some kind of hawk.
But then ghostwriter kicked me off the case when she discovered I was … ahem … eating the evidence …
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress.
