Birds and Happy Thanksgiving

Morning all.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Blogville friends across the pond. We hope you all have a fabulous day, eat lots of turkey which your humans will have spent hours preparing for you and have fun!! We can't wait to see all the photo's of your Special Day.

Well we hope we're not too late to pawticipate in Sarge's 'Give us the Bird' event. We have to post a photo of a bird - any bird - and we thought of this one straight away. This is one from back in the summer when the days were long, the hours of sun stretched on, the walks were long .... ahhhhh ..... ooops sorry going off there!

Anyway this is our contribution, we've named him Captain Beaky! He probably has another name but we liked that one, he's about 4 feet tall too! He's a Rhea who lives at a farm shop not too far away, they sell their eggs their and they are Ginormous!!
Captain Beaky

Am I handsome or what???
Hope you like him!

Have a wonderful day everyone and a great holiday 'over there' - we wish we could come and join in the fun. Tho Old Dear here said to make sure you know she is reading all of your blogs even if she can't reply to all because of her shoulder - blimey we might have to think about a younger model for a PA, this one's fast falling apart ;-)

Hi my Dex (*hugs*), Hi Lou!

That's a great entry into Sarge's event, I thought you had an emu there! You wouldn't want to mess with Captain Beaky if he wasn't in the mood for fun!

Mum and I have done a bird marathon, phew, only one day to go.....

Be good to your PA - peeps have their bits that break down and need attention - mine was doing so much kneeling - that she had a very sore knee that lasted days and days...lucky it seems to have recovered. Paws crossed!

hey Dexter and Louis,

First of all, Happy 6th Birthday, Dexter! I am SO sorry I missed it! I hope you had a fantastic day, and I hope you have a great 6th year of your life!

Sorry your mom is still hurting. We send her many get well wishes!

Captain Beaky is beautiful! I bet he is fun to hang with! I have a bird buddy, a parrot, but my parrot is tiny compared to your Captain Beaky. Good luck with your entry and paws crossed you win!


p.s. Sadly, my human is vegetarian, so no turkey for me. However, there was a carnivore present on Thanksgiving Day so I was able to get some leftover goose. Oh my dawg - so good! :->
