Owning a pet can be such a joy! This bird owner caught her little Frostie happily dancing away, perfectly on-beat, to "I'll Fly Away." This is just too great.:)

Too cute...

This spider-dog literally scared the crap out of its owner

It's nearly impossible to go for "scary" when dressing a pet up in a costume. Even with a hockey mask and tiny bloody chainsaw, the cuteness factor will be through the roof. Which is why this guy should be proud for literally scaring the crap out of his wife with this spider-dog outfit. This disturbingly detailed costume, which turned a couple's dog into a canine-arachnid hybrid and made it to the front page of Reddit, frightened the poor owner so badly that she says she lost control of her bowels and "screamed like a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert." We think that means the costume's done.

Amazing how wild creatures sometimes want that HUMAN TOUCH (good song by Bruce Springsteen too lol)

Baby sea lion boards boat looking for snuggles, snacks, salvation

As YouTubers are wont to do, commenters were quick to take the fun out of this video, suggesting that the poor sea lion was probably starving and exhausted (which may well be true given the pup was picked up off the coast of California). Although many saw the joy in this close encounter with nature, others were just as quick to criticize the people on the boat, saying the boaters should have left the young sea lion alone. "You are not living in a Disney film," wrote one. "You've basically just signed that seal's death warrant." Gee guys, it's not like they stuck a hot poker in him to make him dance.

Love this...

Painting dog's art brightens the picture for tornado victim pals

Maybe Sotheby's isn't calling, but you can have your snooty art auctions. We prefer this snouty one. Arbor was rescued from an animal shelter in Las Vegas by Bryce and Jennifer Henderson, who didn't just teach her how to sit and shake hands but to paint. Now she has some 40,000 Facebook fans who adore her creations, so the Central Oklahoma Humane Society is hoping her latest work, "Hope Through the Rubble," will fetch a good chunk of kibble. The proceeds of an eBay auction will benefit the group's work with animals left homeless by the Oklahoma tornadoes, and bids are already well beyond the $453 Arbor earned for her previous masterpiece.

More for the BIRDS....Haha

Army's new bird drone is so realistic, other birds try to kick its ass

A group of Maryland engineers did an excellent job designing a robotic bird drone for the U.S. Army, but they might have made it too realistic. During test flights, the Robo Raven was attacked by real birds. The carbon fiber and foam Robo Raven (and that's totally our fantasy football team's name) is 2 feet long, weighs less than a Coke can and — just like real birds — can move each wing independently. The drone's movements are so lifelike that some birds try to fly in formation with it, but hawks and falcons will claw at it with their talons. "We don't see them coming," engineer John Gerdes said. "They dive and attack from above, then they typically fly away," yet our intrepid mechanical friend soars on and on. That's so Robo Raven!

Good morning birdthreaders. I hope you all had a great week. Rained this morning, still overcast but I am heading to the pool anyway. I have fed all the birds, clipped some beautiful roses for the table, pulled some weeds and am having my 3rd cup of coffee. I have a tiny bird that is grey/white with black on top of it's head and raccoon type eyes...anyone know what it is? I have never seen one in my feeder but it looks something like this:

Anyone else have them?
Almost resembles the mockingbird, I saw one last year. Mostly meadow larks,sparrows, and robins around here along with the occasional cardinal. Have heard a woodpecker nearby. Last year I saw a finch that looked colorful in the old maple tree;) hope, you discover what that bird is and if it's rare for our area...

Good evening, my fine feathered friend. Our computer was down for a little while, and when we were back online, our little guy took it over, watching cartoons. I checked on him frequently, so I do know it was only cartoons.

Hope everyone is having good days. I've been sleepy and lazy, and need to get moving more. I used to walk on our private road down to the river, until my neighbor, who was haying one of our fields, discovered a marijuana crop. The sheriff dept. took care of it, but I still have a creepy feeling that someone is still down there...discovered a recently discarded beer can and shell casings in the area. Creepy! So I'm a little hesitant to venture down there. It's quite far from the house and very isolated. I used to feel perfectly safe, but not so much now.

Birds are thriving here,and leaving their trademarks on everything...cars, windows, deck, deck furniture. They are pretty, but please, Lord, not so many. They show no fear of the dogs, who gladly share their kibble with the birds.

Hope to post more in coming days, but right now,I have many things that I put off and have to do. My barn needs sweeping and a pass-through with the industrial vacuum.

Otherwise, all is well and I will get back chatting with my dear friends as soon as the chores are done. I keep all of you in my prayers. Love, Lala

I certainly understand about being hesitant about being so far out by ones self. It's such a shame. As kids we'd take off after breakfast, show up at lunchtime then head out till supper time. We wandered creeks and woods and never felt any fear. Last summer I found a one pot meth lab tossed in my field. Yesterday I found marks on the barns walk door where someone tried to break in. Times, they be a'changin'!:-(

Stay safe, Anne, chills went along my arms hearing those marks on your barn. I hope, you have hubby or Family around their. I sure know what you ladies mean. Not like when I was growing up in the 70's either. Walk the hills and creeks. Stay safe:)

There, I meant. We often left our door unlocked. We had our coal house by a dirt road. Mom saw some strangers stop by the road and try to wave me over. They didn't know she was peering through the wooden slats. Took off when they saw her. I could picture her getting after them with the metal coal bucket or shovel. It's worse now with all the drug problems:(

The sheriffs deputy thought it was some kid because there are easy ways besides the walk door to gain entry. Guess I'd better work on some security. Sigh . My daughter and family live upstairs and we have the downstairs so there's usually someone around, but the barn is 700 feet from the house . On a lighter note, my pack rat ways would surely confuse even the most dedicated burglar!! The good stuff is in there but they would have to wade through a lot of stuff to find it! Lol
