Storyline

When a pigeon flies through the Simpsons' home and suffers a broken wing, Bart makes it his duty to care for the bird - whom he names Ray - and nurse it back to health. When Ray is ready to fly, Homer decides to enter him in a bird race when Danica Patrick appears to him in a dream. Things don't go according to plan, however, when Santa's Little Helper swallows Ray. Worried that Bart needs some help getting over the loss, Marge and Homer take him to a therapy session with Dr. Thurston, who advises that the only cure for Bart's blues is to give away the family dog. But when the Simpsons visit the pup's new home, a shock causes them to rethink their decision Written by Fox Publicity

This episode just was SO wrong

What a terrible episode.

Having been a huge fan of this show since its start in 1989/90 I was actually looking forward to seeing this. Being a bird lover, I felt it would be a good story. Boy was I wrong.

Bad enough they had the dog eat the bird but having Bart strangling the Ostrich was just overkill.

Show just doesn't have it anymore and they have lost a long time fan in me. They could have made the storyline happier, but nope, the script writers are cruel and heartless.

Sorry Simpsons, it was good but it ain't anymore
