Usually it’s Cooper who likes to promote the heroes, shelters and rescues who help her feathered friends. Today, it’s Harvey’s turn.

Working hurricane relief, when suddenly…  On reddit

“lil buddy” is doing just fine, has made a ton of friends. It’s amusing to watch all these soldiers drop what they’re doing to come feed him peanuts….lil buddy has been supervising the relief effort from a high perch. With the OPTEMPO we’re pushing here it’s hard to keep track of him but the marines have spotted him a few times. And I will do what I can to reunite “lil buddy” with his home.

If you are looking to volunteer or donate, the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCARedRover and Best Friends Animal Society are all assisting animals affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Odds and Ends

I didn’t have time to work on a post for today, so here’s a little video of Sunny (kind of) playing with the rings. She was weaving in and out of them until she saw the camera…

And here’s a photo of the flock. Ozzie and Felix are jockeying for position. Emmy kept hiding behind the play gym. Harvey wouldn’t face the camera and Alfie was falling asleep. This was the best we could do. Hopefully one day I’ll get a nice, clear shot of them all together. 

Fashion Face Off!


Congratulations Harvey! And no, you cannot get grillz.
