Harness races

Welcome, sports fans. It’s time for harness racing. The field today has as its favorite, Kali

and second favorite, Kaci

It is now post time—–and they’re off!

Uh oh. Kali spots a lizard and the lizard ran into the rosemary bush

Kaci spots a rabbit

The race is over and we have a  winner. It’s

OK, I cheated because I flew. It was lucky (unlucky for me) that there were no male birds on the course. One of these days, I’ll get really lucky.

  1. Yeah, my birds keep hoping to get lucky, too, but it’s just not happening.

    • You’re telling me that I’m not the only one? The world will soon have no birds but a lot of unfertilized eggs?

      • My female refuses to even lay u fertilized eggs. She’s on strike! She was a breeder years ago and relinquished to a rescue when the male attacked her rather than breeding. She was quite antagonistic after that. We adopted her and she has no romantic inklings, devestating our Romeo. She is over it! Our male pines for her. He misses having a mate, it he was abusive to his mate in the past…..

  2. Kissie, you are such a beautiful girl, keep believing and perhaps you will “get lucky” one of these days. Looks like the pups had a good harness race. 🙂

  3. Awww, this is a whole bunch of cuteness this Friday morning. Nice way to start my weekend.

    Have a fabulous day. My best to your peeps. ☺

  4. Oh, my money was on the lizard, lost again *sigh*

  5. “And they’re off!” Not sure what you’d do if you caught the lizard but what an amazing race. 🦎

  6. I think the lizard or the bunny may have won that harness race – in the air of course YOU were the winner Kismet! One day your prince will come I hope…..then those pretty little eggs you pop out will turn into beautiful BURDS like you!

    Love, Teddy

  7. Great fun! Kismet we thought you might just be the skycam to record all the action. Glad there were no rattle snakes….yuck!

  8. OK, so what does that solar panel on the walkway attach to? Your bird phone?

  9. Crackers they let you out of your Coke box and he has got a towel all prepared for a dookie! Kismet they even read bird magazines, you are definitely something special and we know.

    • We’re still worried about YOU.

      • Will had major blood work done and a ophthalmology examine.  Vitiligo can have a great effect on his eyes. His eyes are perfect.
        After the blood work comes back a core punch biopsy will be done on the 26th.  Less than 2% of dogs are affected with this. Blood might be able to give us a reason for this and the biopsy to come will tell us the degree of progressiveness. His blood panel looks great but the endocrine panel are not back yet.

  10. We’re still worried about you.

  11. you are the winner congrats, no ifs no butts ;o) I have a single black berd guy in my backyard and he would like to meet a beautiful girl, I’m sure… I will give him the unused GPS thingy so he can start the long trip over da big pond….

  12. Sophie has figured out how to get out of her harness. There will be no harness races in her future. She can also back out of her collar.

  13. Oh how I do love a good race, and with or without a boy bird, you are lucky enough! 🙂

  14. Love the pic of you on Pops lap. Such a beautiful bird you are. Can’t understand why you have no man yet. Maybe they’re afraid they won’t measure up. Can you do a centerfold in the Bird magazine?

  15. Well of course you won….hehehe goes with out saying,xx Speedy
