Merida does not like birds.
Little birds like Robins or Pigeons. Large birds like Geese and Crows, she hates them equally.
You only have to say the word, "bird", and she runs to the backdoor with a low growl.
So, imagine her delight when a few Canada Geese have started hanging out in the farmer's field behind our house.
Yesterday morning before breakfast, she saw these three and then the hunt was on!
She barked at them a little, ran around the yard, and then ran back! One cannot leave breakfast unattended with Gimli around!
