Hummingbird Invasion & Hot Hot Heat!

Well it’s official, I am off extreme crate rest!  Woo to the Hoo!!!!

The only problem…it’s so hot outside, that mom is not letting me out much to run around.  Yesterday in Nashville, we set an all time record of 109 degrees!  Yikes!!  It’s okay, we have been playing lots of fetch inside the house, so I will take what I can get!

Another thing that is keeping us busy…Hummingbirds!  Mom has been making lots of nectar for these little fellas, cause they eat ALOT!  Yesterday when mom filled their feeders up there were about 12 birds flying around her….holy moly!

This morning she tried to get a video of them, but there were only a few!  I hope you can hear them, they are quite fussy when trying to eat!!  HA!


  1. So glad to hear you are off of crate rest!!! Those humming birds are so cool, we have a few here too!
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  2. Woo to the woo is right. Glad you are out of jail. I like hummingbirds too. They are so fast.

  3. Higgins you are out! Hurrahh. Love the hummingbirds. Swop them any day for our pigeons. Have a happy Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. So glad that you are off crate rest. The hummingbirds are so cool. Keep cool my friend!


  5. On fab humming birds sounds very lovely, never seen one here in England, the best we can do is a little red Robbin who lives in the garden. 109 degrees, that's just a teeny bit too warm for us, but it would be nice to have a little bit over here, it's a freezing wet summer for us :( you take care now, xx

  6. Congratulations!!!!NO more jail time. I want to see you chase your own tail, hehe. Love that video.

    How did you have that Pets Add to Life advert on your side bar? I really like the message. I have been trying to spread the message that guinea pigs shouldn't be alone. Can you teach me to add one to mine too?

    I'll be back,

  7. Are you 100% good now, Higgs? The Typist says she's never heard of humans making nectar for birds before lol.

  8. I would offer you a place up here, but in Kentucky its just as blessed hot -sigh- I hope it cools down soon, for all of us!

    Glad you are off for good behavior!! :)

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  9. Wow, and I thought it was hot here! bol

    My mom feeds humming birds too. It's amazing how much such tiny things can eat.

  10. Oh my Dog, they are amazing! You just can't believe how tiny they are. Wish we had them over here.

  11. It's not quite that hot here in Oklahoma, but it is getting there! Stay cool and we are glad you are better!

  12. 12 hummingbirds?!? That's alot!

    While you are suffering from heat, we are having typhoons, strong rains and low temperatures. It's crazy!

    We are happy you no longer need the crate rest. Now you're officially huggable!

    Huggies and Cheese,


  13. Wow! That is hot! I am so glad to hear that you're out of jail Higgins. You guys sure do get alot of hummingbirds! :)

  14. Higgins welcome back to the real world! Bet you felt like you were in crate rest for EVER!! take it easy in that heat!



  15. Holy cow - that's a LOT of hummingbirds!

    Hope your mom has a great trip. And even though I'm sure you'll miss her, I think you might have fun just hanging with dad for a bit. :)
