Headless Chicken of the North

Kona got her new chicken today, which replaces the chicken of her puppyhood (thanks Kandace). Unfortunately, her doggy friends had not been so gentle with the last rubber chicken and it developed a significant laceration of its neck (see the graphic photo below).

Kona has been observed spending hours gently licking and holding her rubber chicken. When it squeaks, she makes crying noises. Rubber chicken, rubber chicken, how I love thee...

Tragic rubber chicken injury:

Kona is beside herself with excitement:

Besides dog news, I got a few hundred bulbs in today. I even got a blister in my right palm while doing it! For all this work, I'm hoping more family members come for garden tours next May during bulb-o-rama.

Wow! That is a lot of bulbs. Kona looks most excited and proud of her new rubber chicken. She must have been sad when her old rubber chicken developed a fatal injury.

Did you have a rubber chicken burial ceremony?!
Glad to see that it has been replaced. Go Kona Go!
Well, back to the crazy campaign!
