Mum Wanted To Bring One Home!!!

Wow
It is her birthday in a couple of weeks and still don't know what to get her - however I managed to give her a treat today.  This morning I went shopping and found an Owl Sanctury was set up near the shops raising money ... and awareness, so thought I would bring Mum back in immediately after lunch.

She had a great 1/2 hour - even better than I expected as she held one of them ... and chatted to them all!

It was lovely to give her something like this ... she has always loved owls, so a special afternoon treat for her.

How lovely! And they are so tame! I'm not sure I'd put my face that close to an owl's beak.

Mum loved them - and even without her sight problems would have wanted to be close. There was one ther that they had to watch - but even she allowed mum up close to it.

Owls are stunning creatures, aren't they? I was so lucky to spot the "drop-in" event ... hope you manage to bump into similar.

Oh, how lovely! You can see how much she was loving it. I adore owls too, so I can easily imagine how much this trip meant to her.

Your mom is seriously cool. You can see how delighted she is around the owls. What a great daughter you are for arranging this treat for her.

My mom hated all animals. She wouldn't let me have a dog growing up. Once I left home, I would bring my current dog to the house when we came for a visit. Mom would fuss about everytime. She did love one of our dogs, Ruffles who was an English Cocker. Ruffles was very protective. Some local boys were crossing Mom's yard to get to her plum trees. I opened the door to yell at them. Ruffles hit the door and burst out into the yard. The boys ran screaming with Ruffles right at their heels. She stopped at the edge of the yard and continued barking at them. Those boys never tried to steal Mom's plums again. After Ruffles passed, Mom said she woke up from a dream once yelling for Ruffles to get whatever was scaring Mom. That was huge praise from my Mom.

Mum has always tended to say she prefers animals to humans!!! In some cases I think that is so true.

When she was a kid the family kept chickens during the war - came to time that one had to go, no one could eat it once it was cooked!!! My mum's first 4 dogs were Cocker Spaniels ... I always tell Jiffy had odd he really is!

I am sorry about your mum - maybe you could adopt mine!

She looks so happy!

I would have loved that as well. How wonderful!

Was Hedwig there?

LOL - I better not suggest that to mum as she isn't a fan.

They are lovely creatures, aren't they?

I've been meaning to comment on these pics for weeks! Just had to say how happy your mum looks with the owls, she's having an absolutely wonderful time. That big one looks really heavy too!

Mum had a great early birthday!

When we got back I picked Jiffy up and gave him to mum to hold - she said the owl wasn't much different in weight!!!!
