Animal updates!

A little later this afternoon MacGyver, the dogs, the bird and I are all going to pack into the truck and head down to Nokomis for the weekend.  It should be epic.

But I didn’t want to leave without first giving you an animal update.

First, I’ve recently gotten a few emails from some people asking about Boomer.  Some of you were wondering how he’s been doing and what he’s been up to lately.  I can tell you that he’s been pretty busy,

sleeping.

Boomer Sleeping

Woody is growing at an alarming pace.  I can’t even believe how fast this bird has grown.  He’s tripled in size in only three weeks and he can fly for a few feet now.  He still doesn’t really have any major flight feathers but don’t tell him that.  He thinks he can soar through the sky!

He knows his name too.  He comes when you call him.  He is also starting to get the red coloring on his head which is clearly evident in the next picture.

You can see the red just at the top behind his head, or not, depending on how closely you look but it’s there, I swear.  He’s so darn cute.  Have I mentioned that?

Did I mention that Boomer is still the champ at sleeping?  Or that he’s also cute?

Boomer's philosophy on sleep

“When you’re this good at something, there’s no reason to quit.”

And it wouldn’t be an update without a status report on this little guy who is, you guessed it, also a cutie pie,

Hank the Dachshunds

“Psssst, single adoptable male here, loves women! Not afraid to share the bed or my toys, just not with other dogs, cats or birds! Looking for a new family, preferably a sane one. Currently taking applications.”

I don’t know why he would say that, he loves it here.  He might be a tad bit jealous is all.  Maybe I could get the in-laws to pecker sit this weekend so I could give the wiener some extra attention.

hmmmmHope you have an excellent weekend!

What are your plans?
