Being a dog is for the birds!

Sometimes, you just can’t deny that bird is the word. Today, it’s the word.

  1. Your punny pet names: Chick Clark and Duckleberry Finn.
  2. Puppies herding ducklings? I could watch that all day. (Note to self: come up with career plan that will allow me to do just that.)
  3. Speaking of careers, who would have guessed that becoming a Secret Service agent would allow one to help ducklings in distress?
  4. Even though the White House is apparently welcoming to ducklings, I’ve heard that a dog park is no place for a duck.
  5. Perhaps I should have called this post Make Way for Ducklings. Here’s another item of duckling-related cuteness: a Labrador adopting an orphaned duckling.
  6. We should give some other birds their due as well – these orphaned goslings and their adoptive canine mom are unbelievably cute.
  7. Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with some hummingbirds? Now’s your chance.
  8. Oh, heck – it’s an inclusive blog, despite the name. Let’s let the cats shine too. Enjoy this video of a parrot and a kitten hanging out.
  9. Thoughts I’ve never had: “I could really take a good nap right now if only I had a cat to curl up in.” Thoughts a baby chick has had: that one.

Finally, it’s time for today’s video. It’s cute, but what really sold me was the ending…

Thank goodness I managed to get this week’s linkage together. I don’t think I could have made it up to you if I’d skipped it two weeks in a row!

I’m back, baby.

    • Maybe I should give myself a week off more often.

      Alas, I cannot take full credit for finding adorable Animal Planet videos. I was a regular reader of the Best Week Ever blog… which is, as of this week, now defunct. Where will I find them now? I don’t know!

  1. O.M.D. The cute – it hurts!

    And, as big a fan as I am, I now believe Douglas Adams got the answer to “Life, the Universe and Everything” wrong. The answer is obviously “dogs are awesome”. (Okay, and cats are pretty cool, too. πŸ™‚
