Everyone says how "fragile" seramas are, but mine insist on sleeping outside, on top of their coop.  The past few nights have been really cold and damp, so I pick them up and put them inside, after dark.  But so far, the cold doesn't seem to bother them much.   

I have to do that with two Silkie pullets that I just moved to a new coop but I think their issue is lack of intelligence and not just a preference for sleeping outside.

Mrs. Oz has a perverted white Chihuahua named Rocket, for a couple of reasons.  He suffers during his morning outing when there's frosty grass.  The rest of the day he recovers by sleeping in a baby crib.

We were at an outdoor obedience trial one day, and there was frost on the grass.  During his 'sits' a large male dog would squat only to the point where he almost touched the frosty ground.  He was protecting the next generation.

I've got an ankle biter female dog. There are some days where she won't squat down all the way to relive herself :gig

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.
