Our new local park has a great off leash area, which is also popular for picnickers. Which means lots of birds in the park. Guinness absolutely loves chasing the birds, and on his second day he managed to catch one. I think it must have been a little injured alread because the other birds would fly to high branches where this bird tended to taunt him from very low branches.
So anyway, he got it by the tail feathers, and the bird just gave up and sat there. And guinness walked around it, and they touched noses, and guinness walked around few more times sniffing the bird. Then he and the bird just sat next to each other for a few minutes. I wish I'd had my camera. And that was it, after a little resting the bird took off down a steep slope and managed to get some good loft and settle on a high branch.
Given how intensely Guinness chases these birds, I was surprised that he didn't feel any instinct to hurt the bird, he didn't even try to pick it up.
It was very cute.
