Pet Stories

HELLO MARSTON

IT SEEMS JOHN McCONACHIE'S MEMORY IS FADING. JOHN YOU OR YOUR FAMILIES
MUTT OF CHOICE FROM THE VINE LITTER HAD A UNIQUE TWO TONE HEAD, SWIRLS ALL
OVER OF BROWN AND WHITE, EVEN IT'S HEAD, SOMEWHAT LIKE HOLSTEIN CATTLE
MARKINGS, BUT NO MOOING.
THE MOTHER WAS PART COLLIE; THE SIRE FROM PARTS UNKNOWN, AS NO
GAURANTEE OR PEDIGREE PAPERS WERE INCLUDED IN THESE TYPE OF TRANSACTIONS.
SINCE ALL THESE CATS AND RATS AND ELEPHANTS ARE BEING BROUGHT UP, WE
WILL HAVE TO TELL OF OUR PET CROWS OF ONE SPRING AND SUMMER, EH MARSTON.

RICHARD...................


Thanks Richard W.
It's true we had crows that we would take from the mother's nest once they were old enough. One in particular (Corky) hung around for more than a year and became an accomplished thief. He would steel anything that was bright and he loved steeling our father's brass screws.

My mother believed that some of these crows would return to our backyard in the spring.
I think you might have additional material on this ...
