So what is happening?

I have been hanging out at home, resting up for the next trip. We are headed to Denver next week for a few days. That will be fun and different. Did anyone hear the NPR story about the dogs being used in Australia to protect the nesting penguins from foxes. Apparently foxes just live penguins, but not in a good way. The dogs are on loan from a free range chicken farm and have been very sucessful at protecting the nesting area. The only problem seems to be that the dogs get bored after a week or two and swim back to the mainland.


  1. How could one possibly get bored living with penguins??? We just love it! So do the sheep, platypi, etc. AND there are all those trips to France you have to take!

  2. PS: great pic from the ever-amusing fishmonger at Wild Oats!

  3. I did not see the story. But I also couldn't stop my brain from saying over and over; I WANT HIS LIFE! All you do little penguin is travel travel travel.

    I'm jealous.

    So there.

  4. You obviously need some penguins in your life, Merrit!


    Bring a flightless bird into your home. View pictures and chose the little critter that's just right for you. Pictures come with a short bio on each of our charming companions.

    Adopt now!
