Hot Chocolate and Emu

I took Lassie for our usual one on one walk this morning. It's a chilly, storm cloudy day today, so I took a mug of hot chocolate with me. ;)

No hot chocolate for Lassie, but he did get some cheese for his modeling services.

This morning I decided to go a slightly different route rather than our routine one, because why not?
We walked down a street we've never been down before. We saw a man checking his mail with his very old dog by his side. I saw a Border Collie keeping a close eye on me and Lassie, who never saw him as far as I know. We saw chickens (who run really funny, by the way, like a kid who's pants are falling down) and a horse or two and plenty of other dogs. But the most interesting animal we saw had to be these guys:

I saw them and started taking pictures with my iPod. Lassie saw them, stared, and then went straight to the fence for a closer look.

He didn't bark or growl, he just stared at these strange giant birds.
Even still, I called him right back to me after he got a good look at them. I didn't want him to make them mad and one of them seemed to be working up the nerve to approach him.

I think Emu is the strangest animal Lassie has ever seen.

Lassie wants to know, what's the oddest animal you have ever seen?

Shucks. I never see anything more exotic that a silly squirrel. Or maybe a peacock. An emu would be really neat.

I think our boys would expect me to share my hot chocolate with them...

Hot chocolate is still needed in the mornings in my neck of the woods! I wish it would warm up!
