My human has only one twos, one twos (twos) legs, doesn't think like us and he has been called weirds. I like that in a familys man. He is stubborns like me. He likes his beer dark. He could be called an Eclectic Peeps. Most of all, he loves me and I like that. DeltaBunny will journal our lives togethers in the small Delta town of Rio Vista, California.

My dad found this Q&A on the BBC web site. He thought you might be interested.

Q: I'd like to know whether the bird flu can spread to dogs - my Labrador is constantly picking up dead birds and eating them. I would like to understand (a) the risks of her catching bird flu, and (b) the chances of her then passing it on to us. Is this something the BBC could investigate and report on?

A: Your dog should be quite safe and probably most at risk from indigestion knowing what Labradors are prepared to eat! I don't know of any cases of dogs being infected with bird flu but tigers certainly can be. Of more concern would be your dog picking up an infected duck or swan and bringing it home. But that's a pretty remote risk given that we haven't had a single case in the UK to date.

thank you for passing that info on to us.We have lots of birds where we live, Dose this mean that our dogs will have ot get the flu shots,
I wonder will the government bring into force human quarantine restrictions if an outbreak occurs, regardless of where an outbreak occurs?
