Mr. Squawkie goes for a walkie!

“Check what I found when I got home this evening – his dad was sitting on top of my neighbour’s car looking very disapproving indeed so I waited till they’d gone off for chips before i went to take these shots. He’s like a fluffy nubbin on a stick (or two, to be precise) – like those things people clean their ears with.

He also benefits from extreme beauty close-ups – you know what i’m talking about ;D I fear he shall not last the night but he might stay alive in our hearts for ever more if you post him.. and you never posted pictures of my dog, and this little dewd is even cuter (shhh!! don’t say it out loud!) so if you don’t post this I’ll KNOW it’s personal….”

Look! Up in the Sky!

It’s a bird … on a bird!  Yes, it’s time once again for the thrilling adventures of Gaylord, The Wonder Crow, atop his trusty vulture Dagmar as they fight a never-ending crusade against improper grocery bagging practices! Whenever bags are filled past rated load limits, wherever bread is crushed beneath cantaloupes and detergent boxes, Gaylord and Dagmar are there to save the day!

Owlette enjoys ear scratch!

No, that is not a typo. It’s a lil’ owl who loooooooves a good scratch. He even has a happy little cackle and his eyes roll back like Shark week. This whole scene belongs in a Japanese video game check it:

Ready… Aim…

Bravely refusing the blindfold, Lieutenant Drummond defiantly stared down the row of soldiers before him, each with a single snowball at the ready.  “Does condemned have any last requests?” asked Colonel Blatznykov.

FLASHBACK: Our First-Ever ResQte™

Happy Spring Saturday, Peeps! Who’s up for a few Lil’ Floating Snacks? er… ‘quacks’?

Maggie from Australia writes: “They are Pacific Black ducklings, native to Australia, who we rescued after they fell into the man-made water feature outside our home and couldn’t get out again [they were only a few days old and were a long way from flying]…”

“This picture was taken one night when we’d returned the ducklings to their temporary sanctuary in our guest bathroom. Lucy, our 3 year old beagle, was fascinated by them and whimpered for hours after they were taken away – she missed her little mates.”

The baby ducks should be releases to the wild later this month… Thanks, Maggie.
