Ekka - Creatures great and small, but preferably furry 
10th-Aug-2010 05:39 pm

Who knew a cow could double up
as a very comfortable warm and soft day bed
after an exhausting day of judging and demonstrations
to all us city cousins?

After a number of close encounters of the bovine kind,
cows have replaced canines as the ultimate drool machine in my mind.
But this one was just moist.
Mmmm... moist.

And what's a country fair without some dyed chickens?

And of course, pink.
Wonder if they hatched from pastel shaded Easter eggs. (^_~)

What's the easiest and suriest way to wake up a sleeping cat behind a glass door,
without touching anything?


Blow into the door gap.
The smell of your lunch (or plaque) is sure to shock the feline awake.

Chinese Sharpei is wrinkly much?
I was tempted to pinch the folds of fur.

Of all the wrinkly dogs I think the Sharpei is the cutest <3

Dyed chickens are kinda cool and kinda scary lol! Perfect for Easter indeed!

They are, but I'm always too tempted to pinch their folds and flap them. It's contagious, I tell you!

I keep wondering how they do it: hang them by the legs to dip them in a vat of colour? Feed them so much food colouring, it comes through in their feathers? Spray paint them?

Actually I thought that was the whole point of their wrinkles! =O It's supposed to be velvety and therapeutic playing with their folds! (I learnt that from Tensai Shimura Dobutsuen HAHA OTL)

Give them a bath in super diluted food coloring? lol

Depends on who you speak to. The wrinkles were supposedly a feature originally bred for fighting. There was a show recently, which showed this sharpei who needed surgery to remove the folds around its eyes, cuz it was blinding it.

A pillow of hamburger... I guess cows are warm and soft, but aren't they a bit smelly too? At least the ones I've dealt with on farms usually are.

A pillow of hamburger

*LOL* And steak.

Surprisingly the creature itself doesn't smell. We pet so many and they smell no more than a dog or a cat. The smell is only when there are so many of them confined in a small space with limited airflow. Cows apparently fart a lot, so it gets very pong-y - as with humans.

It also just occured to me that these cows probably get washed often where as my relatives on the farm probably don't give out many baths to the livestock.

Don't you have a similar country fair in the UK/Stuttgart?
