Can You Swim, Eat And Dry Your Hair?

by Kimberly A. Cook                 (twitter@  WarriorTales)

One reason I went into the Army is I can’t swim for beans. Do a mean dog paddle or glide? Yes. Breast stroke? No.  So when I saw this clip from the “Nature” television show with sea otters not only eating and swimming, but a momma otter blowing her baby’s hair dry and swimming, so impressive.

I can barely dry my hair standing on dry land, let alone swimming. Might be an electrical issue with the whole power cord thing too. That’s why those warning labels are on hair dryers because you know some idiot tried it. Once.

Watch these otters in action courtesy of the robot “Spy Otter” who snuck up and got these papparazi shots of the sea otters.

Have a great, safe, weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Two Fast Girls Move Into The Oregon Zoo

by Kimberly A. Cook                             (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Here in Oregon we get a lot of new folks moving up from California, but these two San Diego gals are very quick. Mary Jane and Darlene are the new cheetah residents at the Oregon Zoo. They look fast standing still. Like the supermodels of the feline family. Go big kitties!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

A Pool, A Watermelon And An Elephant?

by Kimberly A. Cook          (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Summer is finally here and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than splashing in the pool. Unless you’re Sammy at the Oregon Zoo; not only do you dive in the pool, you get to eat watermelon – in the pool – underwater. Life is good for Sam!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

It’s Minions Time!

by Kimberly A. Cook                  (Twitter@   WarriorTales)

Unless you live under a rock, you know the new Minions movie, “Despicable Me Three” opens today. I cannot get enough of these little yellow guys. Next on the agenda is to haunt McDonald’s to get the Happy Meal Minion’s toys. Gotta have them!

Warning: Minion butt tattoo seen in this clip. Cover the kids eyes!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Ever Herded Chickens?

by Kimberly A. Cook                (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Have not been able to get my act together the last week and a half for love or chocolate. I could blame it on the never ending winter weather or low sugar, but I just need to get organized. Some of the most energetic and brilliant creatures I’ve ever met are Border Collies. Maybe I need to hire one as an assistant!

But from this training film, it looks like Border Collie pups have to start at the bottom too; herding chickens. If you’re having that kind of week, remember even Border Collies start with chickens.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

It’s Time For A Piano Playing Chicken!

by Kimberly A. Cook             (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

I chose to turn off the news Tuesday night and watch “America’s Got Talent.” Sometimes your heart and mind need a break.

So what restored my faith? This pretty perky little fowl. If we can harness chicken power to play the piano, there is nothing we can’t accomplish together. Think the chickens are getting a band together too.

Stay safe, practice the Golden Rule and be kind to others. Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday.

Seen Huck The Roof Dog?

by Kimberly A. Cook                   (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Huckleberry knows what he’s doing. It’s the humans who are driving his mom and dad nuts. Seems this lively pooch figured out how to get on the roof as a young pup and he loves the height advantage. But every human who comes by thinks they don’t know about Huckleberry’s roof job.

His parents have posted a sign. So don’t knock, but do wave at Huckleberry! He’s a social media top dog now. #hucktheroofdog  Of course.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!
