Sunday Night Open Thread: Sweetest Couple On The Block

Gr

I was going to wait until I had video before posting about these two, but who knows when that will be. When I go out into the yard, it disrupts the dynamic.

Penelope Pearl has a crush on Bixby (more photos here) and I melt watching her follow him around.

I mentioned in a previous thread that her hormones have hit hard. She comes to me for skritches when it gets to be too much. Which is adorable.  But her main focus has been Bixby and he’s all cool with it. I just worry about him stepping on her accidentally.

I’ll keep trying for video, because she calls after him as she goes.

    Anyone else want Penelope Pearl to hop on Bixby’s back and ride around in style?

    “What’s that?”

    Ducks, dogs and cats living together? What’s next? Those pictures are so cute.

    @mrmoshpotato: Yes, I would like to see that too, as long as it wouldn’t be too dangerous for her. I had to laugh at what you wrote because it reminded me of that video that went around a year ago. The one where a family caught the neighbor’s corgi catching a ride on their pony’s back.

    So happy to see Bixby healthy and walking normally, so he can continue his duck-charming ways. Hope you’re able to get a video at some point.

    I often think the only real justification for the human species is to teach other species to be friends not only with us, but with one another.

    There should be an “after” picture (photoshopped, of course) of some white feathers and duck bones, picked clean with the dog licking his chops….
