hopefully a vulture doesn't come by and eat us.

Don't worry, I'll protect you and your brood.

But freals: you have no idea how I srsly worry about vultures/hawks swooping by and taking Parker. She's so small and I've seen them eying her at the dogpark.

So cool.

OMG...you SEE vultures where you live??? I have never seen them in real life, but remember being petrified of them when I was a kid.

That would horrific if something like that happened with Parker, but I can totally picture you kicking the vulture's ass...you'd hand it to him...what a scene that would be...holy.

KITTY!?!?
That photo made me actually say 'WHAT THE FUCK?' out loud!
(i love it)
Oh, and i think it's good you haven't seen vultures. I once witnessed a pack eating an orange cat carcass. :p It was gross yet hypnotizing.

Bahaha...sorry. heehee.

Oh dear, that would be horrifying...and where my dear was your camcorder??? :P

Hi, I'm a baby vulture and I'm going to grow up and steal your dog.

(sick)

I pity the bird that has to live in a plastic nest.
