Photo Essay -- Dancing Chicken and Barking Puppy

Can you tell I don't feel like working?

The other day my chicken was minding his own business, sitting in my favorite chair and reading my copy of Mark Ludy's The Grump.

He seemed to like the book a lot, because when he finished he hopped around in my chair, doing his "squawk, squawk" chicken dance.

Chicken was taken aback when puppy jumped up on the chair and barked, scaring chicken half to death. I think puppy was only doing his "bark, bark" puppy dance thing, but chicken didn't get it.

Chicken didn't wait for an explanation or make an effort to understand. He attacked puppy and pecked him on the nose.

This puppy, however, is no shrinking violet. You can see him above, doing his little "bark, bark" happy puppy dance, while chicken struggles to stand up.

Note: No stuffed animals were injured in any way during this photo session. Puppy's nose is fine, and chicken squawked and danced as soon as I set him on his feet.

Are you SURE no chickens were injured in production? That last frame got me worried. :)

Some days are like that. You just have to be silly and playful and not worry about the To Do List.
