"What did you say they looked like?... This is the page, I think,"
"I agree, Rugby, that picture looks just like them."
Our new The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America has all kinds of fans, we're learning. These funny photos of Pembroke Welsh Corgis using the guide, complete with quotes, was sent to us by Susan Peitricola of VT.
We cracked up when we saw these photos and, being Corgi owners ourselves, we know it's not easy to get such photos (Corgis are very smart dogs, and cookie bribery is usually involved).
Even funnier is the page they're turned to, page 68, the Wild Turkey page (with Lillian's photo of the three Turkeys). It just so happens that recently, our own Corgi, Abby, saw some Wild Turkeys in our field. Corgis are herding dogs and, although Abby has never been trained in herding, she ran down the hill and in no time had herded those Turkeys into a tight little ball. She then proudly ran back to us. Too funny times two.
