Humans, Dogs and Boxes?

I want to squawk about something!  These humans are crazy!  They love boxes!  They look at big boxes and talk to little boxes.  My human (The one I hired to clean my cage and feed me) talks to a little box all the time.  It even calls out to her.  She will come running around the corner grabs it and says “Hello”.   It stops yelling out when she does this.  Sometimes it will call her and I think she is mad at it because she will pick it up and say….”I don’t think so”.

The crazy thing is the humans don’t talk to the big box.  The big box just talks to the humans and they sit there for hours just looking at it and listening.  Sometimes they watch the big box talk on the little box about what the big box is saying.  The other day all of the sudden they started yelling at the big box and that puzzled me.  They yelled “go, go, go”.  I found it very exciting but the box never moved!  The humans jumped up and down.  Some got mad and others laughed at the mad ones.  The box was never afraid it just sat there and talked and flashed its colors.

Gracie watching the Big Box!

I have a new problem now. I think the dogs are teaming up with the humans.  I have yet to see a dog talk to a little box but i have evidence that the dogs are now teaming up with the humans.  A reader shared this photo of Gracie watching and listening to a big box. Then the craziest thing happened … I started getting pictures where the dogs were dressing up like humans.

Here are two pictures from readers that have their team shirts on!

Here is Haley in her favorite team shirt!

Then you have Zeus…….aka Sir FURcrest!  Sorry Zeus your team lost but you still look great in that shirt.

I believe that we should do our best to watch out for the boxes in our lives.  Maybe humans should consider turning off the big box, putting down the little box, stop typing on the medium box.  Get your dog out of the closet and the two of you go for a walk…..Z Bird.

RD picked the Saints!!!

Here at the farm we felt for sure that it being a pet blog that the natural choice would be the Colts! We nominated RD as the official game forecaster for this year. With two tabs of paper the same size, color and smell he made his selection. The only difference in the two were the words Colts on one and the Saints on the other. RD has a trick that he already knows of guessing which hand the treat was in. You can shuffle it behind your back and he will actually pick the one with the treat. He gets it right about 95% of the time. Today we put the treat in both hands for equal smell and allowed him to see the names. RD selected the Saints to win the Superbowl. Goooooooo Saints! Have a great Superbowl Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Smokey and Z Bird

Smokey wanting me to come outside and discuss the Groundhog Day events!

The saying goes that if  Punxsutawaney Phil (a groundhog) sees his shadow on this day then we will have six more weeks of winter.  Something is bugging me about this whole thing.  I read today that he has seen his shadow 99 times, 15 times no shadow and 9 times no record.  This dude is OLD!  He would be like 123.  That’s not his shadow he saw…. that was death chasing him! The oldest reported wild groundhog lived a whopping 6 and a half years.  I don’t know about this Phil guy.  

Have you ever heard the story about how the goldfish died and the parents just swapped it for a look-a-like?  I think we need to keep an eye on that group there in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.  

I also read Phil actaully lives in the Punxsutawney Library in a climate-controlled home.  He thrives on a buffet of dog food and ice cream.  Sometime before Feb 2nd Phil is “placed” in a heated burrow underneath a tree stump that is on a stage located at Gobbler’s Knob.  Phil is pulled out somewhere between 7:20 and 7:30 am in front of a many as 35,000 people.  This whole event wasn’t that popular until Bill Murray starred in a film back in 1993 named Groundhog Day.  

Now it seems several states are jumping on the event and bringing out their best groundhog.   Ohio has Buckeye Chuck whom did not see his shadow and Staten Island Chuck also reported no shadow.  Texas couldn’t produce a groundhog so they settled for an armadillo named Bee Cave Bob.  This is the first time Texas has depended on Bob’s prediction but they do claim that he has been right 98.6 percent of the time.  If  this is his first time  Bee Cave Bob weighed in how do we get these numbers? 

Here at the farm I nominate me (Z Bird) as the official weather forecaster extraordinaire.  I am always 100 percent correct and I say it’s going to be a long winter!!!!!
