During this morning’s heartwarming nature crap hike in the woods, my 4-month-old yella Lab Frances spotted this teakwood table and immediately grabbed one of its legs in her teeth, with the apparent intention of dragging it home, half a mile away. But before I could photograph this heartwarming tableau, the unexpected arrival of a wild turkey and a couple of heartwarming turkey chicks took us both aback. Fran recovered her composure in .007 seconds, executed a flawless rollback, and lickety-splitted into the brush after the birds.
There was a fairly epic commotion offstage, but no blood was spilled.
Regrettably, none of the heartwarming photos of the turkey chicks turned out. So you’ll have to take my word for it that these chicks were the size of Cessna Skycatchers.
