Lost of animal stuff on Twitter lately, as always, with much of the stuff I liked best involving dogs.
First, a dog’s unique way of getting past a gate.
Next, a reunion.
I looked up “cats and dogs” on Twitter, to see what epic confrontations would materialise, but instead found my way to #Dogandcat, which is full of dogs and cats getting along with one another, although some of the cats seem to be getting a bit irritated. Dogs, on the other hand … There’s just nothing they won’t do to oblige their humans. They’ll even like cats, if the humans tell them to.
I also learned of Dog and Cat, which is a TV show from the seventies about two humans called that. A young Kim Basinger is involved, presumably playing Cat. This never made it to England, first time around.
Moving away from dogs, horses are reminded not to overstep boundaries.
Next, because I know you’ve always had your doubts about this, ostriches:
… do not bury their heads in sand to hide from danger. They actually dig holes to bury their eggs and the myth came about from people seeing ostriches putting their heads in the holes to turn the eggs to ensure they are evenly heated.
Final full stop added there. Twitter is great for animal videos, but is ruining punctuation.
Finally, news from a fox. Well, actually a Fox:
A Twatter pile on I can deal with.
Extremely painful upper left molar, not so much.
Oh dear god, the agony.
Lots of suggested remedies follow. I trust the agony will abate soon.
