Where's E.C. Bird?

Hi friends!

Mom and Dogdad are back from St. Louis and we're back from camp. But that flighty E.C. Bird is nowhere to be found.

We know lots of you took his plight to heart, offering him a sweater or a scarf or a sanctuary when he told you how distressed he was to find himself in the frigid Midwest. Nothing like compassionate canines to offer sympathy to a fellow suffering creature. Thank you for that!!!

But a day later, the region warmed up -- and yet, did E.C. Bird file the reports he promised as soon as his beak thawed and the reindeer flew home? No!!! Did he update his condition and his whereabouts? Did he offer to return the cam? No!! Did he look for another egret to fill in for him? No!!!

So here we are, back from our Christmas vacation with no stories from him, no pictures from him, no nothing to share from him. Fortunately, Dogdad snuck a few pictures in and that's what you see here.

The chilled street where Grandma lives.

Squirrel nests in the trees where our uncle and aunt live (Squirrel nests!!! We didn't know squirrels had nests.)

A pre-marathon-gift-opening Christmas tree.

And a silly someone familiar-looking wearing antlers. (We think it's Mom, 'cause she was kind of envious of all the dogs who were wearing antlers in their Christmas cards. )

But back to E.C. Bird. We had paid him in advance with a seven-day supply of his favorite fishes -- so we are wondering if we should have recourse to an attorney. That's not in the spirit of Chistmas and the holiday season -- so we're still undecided. What do you all think we should do?

Your pals, sending you lots of wirey love for the New Year,

Jake and Just Harry

Pee ess: (Shhhh, don't tell him I told you, but Jakey will be 6 years old on New Years Day!! J.H.)

We're glad your dog dad took some pictures, and we think your mom looks great in antlers! Maybe we should look for rabbit ears for her for the next holiday season.

As for the sneaky egret, we hear he has been spotted at the bird house in Forest Park.

Gussie, You are so clever. We checked the link to the bird house -- and there he was. Do you think he traded in the cam for shelter? We're sending the bird house a letter asking them to hold
E.C. Bird for questioning.

Glad you are back. It was quiet without you two. We think that the egret is probably thawing out in some spaw and running up a huge fish tab, and trying to charge it to you. Beware, because it will be fishy.

Gus said...

Well, that bird place is definitely THE place to be for Egrets in St. Loulis. Muzzer and Dad went there this summer. They used to walk through it when they were "courting" back in the dark ages. I stayed at home with a bully bar, cause no dogs is allowed.

As they say, egret come, egret go. Maybe that was easy come, easy go. Alas, I don't think you will have a case because birds are so flighty.

Hey, guys!

I'm catching up after being away from the pooter for almost a week. So, welcome back, buddies! Tell your sweet mama that she looks crazy in those antlers.

About the big number 6 for Jake... any plans for a blowout bash? I'm there if so.

Goober love,
