Animals can be so funny!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Armadillo’s always give birth to 6 babies and they are all the same sex. They are kind of dopey and don’t really acknowledge anything that is going on around them. That’s why DH was able to go up to one and pet it. I don't think we have them here but nine banded armadillos can / will jump up to 6 feet high if you scare them. That must be a sight to see!

When we first moved into our house, it wasn’t even close to being finished and barely livable in. We had been living with my in-laws while my FIL finished building the house and so as soon as we could we moved into it. At that time there wasn’t any yard so to speak. We didn’t have an area fenced in for the dogs and no patio yet. Anyway, shortly after we moved in we had a bobcat that would come up to the front door and stare at the outdoor light. It was a motion detector light and it was fascinated that with it. It would turn on when it came close to the house. So, it would come and stare at the light until it went off. Then it would get up to leave because it went off and it would turn on again. It did this several nights in a row until it decided that it was bored with it I guess. As you can tell having a motion detector light out here wasn’t a good idea. Even after we got a fence put up we got rid of that light because rabbits and other small animals would still come into the yard and turn it on in the middle of the night.

We have two cockatiels and one of them (Comet) always gets into the bottom of one of the cupboards and plays fort with his brother (Daffy Duck). That is, Comet is the General of the fort and his brother isn't allowed into the fort! Daffy will poke his head in every now and then to irritate his brother on purpose. If Daffy gets in by some chance without Comet realizing it then all he!! breaks loose and Daffy, if he isn't quick enough, will get a bite on his behind!! So, yesterday morning they were playing fort and Daffy closes the cupboard door on his brother so he can't get out! I just laughed and laughed over that!

My hubby's cousin has a black German Sheppard (Nicki) and a Pit Bull (Andi). They're both female and she'll put a tutu on Andi and pink boa around Nicki. It's hilarious to see! She has an invisible fence so that she can let them out without worrying about them wandering off. It's happened twice now where Andi has gotten a little too close to the invisible fence and Nicki has pushed her into it! So, she gets a shocked each time this happens!! So funny!

    One of the things I love about you is your enjoyment/love you have for wildlife and nature! One of the reasons I am excited about retirement is that I now have time to "stop and smell the roses," to really observe what is going on around me and not be rushing around all the time. Animals sure do interact in funny ways. I wish I could see Comet and Daffy In person - I bet it's hilarious to watch them! I get such a kick out of Max and Sophie on their daily walks with me. I have them on a double leash now, because they would always get tangled up with each other. But since they now can't be far apart, they do the funniest things! Sophie likes to boss Max around, but Max is learning how to deal with her. When Sophie wants to go and Max wants to stay somewhere, he plants his feet down and won't let her drag him. And when Sophie squats to do her business, Max starts doing the back leg scratching and growling and grass flies right on top of her!

    Animals are funny. I live in town so I don't have much in the way of wildlife, but even domestic animals are funny.
