  4. did i miss something? did anyone move? this video is WAY too long!

  5. Wow! What’s the backstory on this?

  6. But it’s not very often you get to see a wol in one place for so long, so all the more interesting for it.

  7. Lovely, patient doggie. Possibly a bit bemused as well.

  8. What a lovely start to my day:
    …the tender touches
    …such a flouffy owl
    …the patient puppeh
    and I quietly call matchinks.
    I think this day will be delightful. Thank-you.

  9. Rachael says:

    Are those the owlie’s normal feets? Or is he/she wearing gloves? :)

    Patient, patient goggy. What a sweet friendship – just makes my day.

  10. amyliz says:

    How do these situations happen? And why do they never happen to me???

  11. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Looks like the owl is preening his dogfriend. :3

  12. rescue gal says:

    I call not real- these creatures have been created by Jim Henson’s magical workshop to amuse and delight us!

  13. rescue gal says:

    HONEST- I did not look at the You Tube comments, LOL. That was just a funny co-incodence; but I am not alone in my thinking.

  14. “This owl–Louise (nickname Wee) loves Annie the bird dog. You should see where they work visit them at: http://www.tacticalavianpredators.com and http://www.raptoradventures.com

    That is all the information that is forthcoming on the YouTube page.

  15. Aunt Bev says:

    So I am guessing the baby owlet survival ratio is not exactly high… guess the wise owl part kicks in much later…

  16. Stressfactor says:

    Looking at their two websites it appears as though this family keeps and raises various raptors (looks like mostly falcons although there is “Wee” here) and then uses them to help teach people about raptors, train those who want to own and fly falcons (the ancient sport of falconry) and also (IMO brilliantly) offer pest control services through the raptors.

    So Mr. Owl here looks to be a ‘working family pet’ and has probably grown up around the dog. And vice versa,

  17. ceejoe says:

    My first reaction: WTH is that?!?
    Second reaction: Puppeh is looking at hoomin like Can’t you make it leave me alone???

  18. Catwhisperer says:

    Ha! Great narration, Jenny!

  19. That dog has clearly been trained to not engage the birds, I’m guessing from the few comments of the film maker that having birds around is somewhat regular. Another option is that the bird has hurt the dog before, but she just seems rather annoyed if anyhing by it.

  20. Matchingks?

  21. wow, the giant killer feets used to gently pet on the dog. very dear.

  22. Yay, someone else who uses “crap and a half”! Also, fits the video perfectly.

  23. Theresa says:

    AND “eldritch horror”! :lol:

  24. Theresa says:

    That’s a BIG baby. Also matchingks.

  25. “Fluffy eldritch horror” is something I’m gonna have to work into conversation today.

  26. The Original Jane says:

    This.

  27. :D

  28. Daniel Ben-Zvi says:

    I can’t be the only one who looked at the dog and thought “Sprocket!”.

  29. Somewhere there’s a cat crying at home and looking up divorce attorneys in the yellow pages.

  30. Jenny Islander says:

    Apparently the dog actually helped raise the bird, although the maternal instinct apparently wore off. On their site there’s a video of the bird, now a full-grown owl, riding in the back seat with the dog. The owl is all “I wuv oo” and the dog just sighs and props her chin on the rear windowsill.
