Morning Show

The puppies were mesmerized at the dining room door, watching something outside as I was making toast. I went over to see what was so interesting and that is how the first slice of toast went to the dogs.

It was like the Cartoon Channel for puppies!

I started another piece of toast and Sparkle started barking -- that is how the second piece of toast went to the dogs.

I would have missed the Turkey Show if I didn't listen to the language of my dogs, and they would have missed two slices of toast if they kept the visitors to themselves. 

Some of you have seen this photo on Facebook but I share for those who didn't -- Tika and Claire napping yesterday afternoon...

Life in Montana.

Wild turkeys are impressive and I understand the puppies fascination. We were at a state park campground in Texas with abundant wildlife including mule deer and turkeys in the campground. I opened the door to take our 2 adult female Berners out. They took one look at the male turkeys puffed up and dragging their feathers to make more noise and decided they didn't really need to go out yet. Testosterone poisoning at its best.

Thanks for sharing the story and the toast.

Totally fascinated - I am pretty sure that is a mating display, so I guess you'll be seeing baby turkeys!

The turkey fascination is part of a long-standing joke - I got a birthday card years ago, with turkeys on the front wearing party hats - inside, the message was "All your ex-boyfriends got together to wish you a Happy Birthday!"

I shall henceforth think of our turkeys as Sharon's exes. blush

We often see wild turkeys around our land, sometimes in a gaggle, sometimes loners. Last week Rob told me, "I saw that one down by the end of the driveway. It's a young tom." And then he went on, "There's a name for them - oh, what is it? I can't remember."
My reply, "Tommy?"

(thank you, I'll be here all week. try the beef)

They are not super welcome here, and are not native. Added to their aggression, we are glad the Coyotes keep them in manageable numbers.
