Great short little video of just what I expressed in my previous post about how a beautiful it is to have a turkey allow you to interact with her and engage in huggles! Hug a turkey: I promise, you will never be the same again!

It’s never too late to change!

Watch to the end and you’ll hear a lovely little cooing (and see all the hugs and kisses too) 😀

    Thank you for the lovely video. I also enjoyed the pitbull too, but I’m partial since I have a rescued pittie. I wanted to share a recent turkey observation. I’ve been enjoying wild turkeys in my neighborhood all year. This winter, as they were making their way through the backyards, one by one jumping on top of a fence and hopping over into the next yard, one of them got sidetracked and found himself all alone just as the others were moving out of sight. When he realized he was left behind, he started pacing back and forth in front of the fence, trying to figure out how to get past it. Oh the drama! But help was on the way. One of the turkeys (the biggest one – pack leader?) noticed he was missing and went back for him. He just hung around until the straggler solved the fence problem and they both rejoined their group. They really are fascinating creatures.

      Thank you so much for sharing, Jodi! I love to read things like this. Amazing how such simple acts can make my day! 😀

      Even though I’d love to hug any turkey :), optimally, it’s best to just let them live their lives as naturally as they can. I guess, the hugging and so forth should be left for the rescued animals. So, I love that you were able to enjoy them simply by watching :D. My philosophy is “Let them be,” which is better than hugging every living thing, ha. You know, I love cheetahs, but, personally, wouldn’t want to snuggle with one!

          Hi 🙂 Thanks. I have some from 3 years ago! Yikes. Some are so outdated, they need to be re-done 😕

          Thanks for stopping by 😀

            Ha, I’ve read across your blog quite a little for some time now, and also commented. But maybe my comments have been caught by your spam filter. (There was a time when I was liked to be treated as spam by almost all blogs out there I wanted to comment on, but meanwhile I could fix that by clearing my cache and rebooting. Whee. ;))

            Happy to meet another smiley lover, btw! 😉 There are too few of them around the blogsphere!

            Oh, would you perhaps look into your spam filter, if you have the time? If you haven’t emptied it, my comment(s) might still be there … I think I’ve written something about your wonderful pomegranate emptying method I still need to try out. 🙂

              Kath, How weird! I’m perplexed as to where your comments would have gone and why they are now posting??! Hmm. Strange.
              😀 🙂 😀 🙂 😀 🙂 😀
