Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this new series!
Name: Puff, but don’t let that fluffy name fool ya—I’m top of the pecking order ’round these parts.
Age: Been outta the shell three years, nine months, two weeks, give or take a few sunrises.
Location: My digs? A fully-loaded backyard some place in the NYC ‘burbs. Got all the ducky accoutrements– pen/coop/water/bugs. And *do not* ask if we have a pond. We don’t have a pond. Our motto: “we don’t need no stinkin’ pond”! We have fresh water brought in daily. A pond. Sheez!
What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Are you my mother?
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? When I spilled water on the lawn, made mud and found my first worms. Nothing says home like a juicy annelid– nom nom nom.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I, myself, am above reproach but I can tell you about the time my fellow flockers, Bonnie and Fannie, escaped from the kiddie pool and ran around the garage for a couple of hours. PS, they were *not* wearing diapers.
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Okay, by “paws” I take it you mean “wings”? Well, that would definitely be Mom. She and I are both top hen in our respective realms so we totally relate to one another, kinda like a mutual admiration society with omelets.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? Not Mom, she gets me. Other humans think I don’t know how to drive. Ha!
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Puff – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
