Cock - A - Doodle - Do!!

In Key West I went to take a picture of a rooster in the driveway of where we were staying.
He wanted to get away from me.
I never knew roosters were climbers!
Granted the little bugger flew onto the branch, but then it kept climbing!!

What have you learned about animals lately that has surprised you?

He works hard for the money!!

While in Key West we went to Mallory Square to enjoy the sunset.  Every evening there are street performers and vendors in the area.  There was a guitar player and as he played, this little cutie would walk around to the audience members for the tips.  When you gave the dog the tip, he’d walk over and drop it into the bucket.  He was so cute!  He looked VERY well cared for too!  I bet the treats the guy gave him were gourmet!!

What’s the cutest animal trick you’ve seen lately?

Human Hamster Ball

While I was in Tampa last week I went to Citrus Park Mall.
In the center of the mall there is an above ground pool with about a foot or so of water in it.
The person climbs inside the plastic ball and then the attendant puts a hose (what looks like a shop vac)
and blows air into the ball and zips it closed.  Spreads some Vaseline on the zipper and off they go.

It seems like a good business.  The biggest expense is probably the rent paid to the mall.

Eurp Bobble's Price List

These guys were obviously older teenagers and they looked like they got exhausted FAST!!

I have a video too, but I can’t figure out how to upload it!!

There are videos on their website.

Every time I see one of the larger pet balls in Petsmart I’m tempted to get one for Isabella.  I bet if I got inside one of these I’d think twice about it!!  LOL!

Does this look like something you’d try?
