Owl Second Guessing Move to Caribbean
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Recently retired owl Amber last month moved to the US Virgin Island of St. Croix. But what was intended to be a quiet retirement, living out her golden years in paradise, has turned into a nightmare.
"She’s become the center of attention everywhere she goes on the island. People just stare at her, sometimes even through binoculars," said close friend Alex Marinelli. "It’s rude. It’s like they’ve never seen an owl before."
According to owl expert Dr. Nathan Twony of Ball State University, that very well could be the case.
"Long eared owls don’t usually get down that far south," he said. "Seeing a bird like Amber in St. Croix would understandably cause quite a stir. I’m sure the local ornithological community is pretty excited."

Dog’s Fashion Sense Is Not for Everyone
Frankie the dog has always blazed his own path. Friends recall how he dropped out a school to pursue a career as a novelist. How he chose Android when everyone else was buying iPhones. How he rooted for the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, even while making his home in Seattle.
Lately, though, Frankie has just started acting weird. Case in point: he’s begun wearing a chicken named Morty as a hat.
"I mean, this isn’t yet James Franco level weird," said friend Colleen Murphy. "But it’s certainly not normal."
Friends have no idea who Morty is or how the two met, but they speculate that Frankie is paying the bird to ride around on his head.

Chicken Can’t Remember Why He Crossed the Road
Sammy the chicken crossed the road earlier this morning but once he reached the other side, onlookers said he appeared confused and out of sorts. He spent some time pecking the ground nonchalantly, to cover, but it was clear that he had forgotten why he crossed the street in the first place.
"I feel really bad for him," said Cheryl Hawkins. "Really, I do. Everyone is always asking him that question, and now even he doesn’t know the answer."
Sammy has been having memory problems recently, according to friends. Yesterday he crowed at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, instead of dawn, for example. 
"It threw thew whole farm out of whack," said one friend. "We all overslept and then Sam cockle-doodle-doos at nearly sundown. Threw us for a loop."
