 This series is about the bond between domestic dogs and wild birds. 

 I began to think a bit about this when a dog I once had would bark emphatically, followed by tearing across the yard at top speed in an effort to chase the Magpies away...only to have them return almost immediately to fly just out of her reach taunting her.  This amused me greatly, both because it seemed like some sort of perverse play between the species, and because it happened often enough for me to conclude that they might each have been counting on the other to put some excitement in their daily lives. 

 Since we can't know completely the mind of either birds or dogs, I think it is possible that there is a whole world of relationships between these two species that we, as humans, are not privileged to know.  With that in mind, I bring you this series from my imagination depicting a variety of domestic dogs together with wild birds or things bird-related.

 Thank you for giving me the great pleasure of sharing these works with you.
