Little Pink Life-Form
It’s an invasion, run and hide. Little pink men are landing in PnF land.Find Food
Not quite. Yes we have visitors and yes they are pink but they are not all men and they are not invading. Relax and I shall tell you a bit about what is going on.
In the depths of that vast cold place, we call Outerspace are pinpoints of light and bodies of rock and mineral that orbit those pinpoints of light. On one such floating body, many light-years away, there is the hustle and bustle of life-forms living their lives. This life has decided to visit Petland—as they have heard what a marvellous place it is—and see what makes all the different creatures get along so well and maybe just maybe make a new home or at least a place to visit from time to time.
This life is quite adorable to gaze upon—not scary, nor scaley. These pink lifeforms have large eyes—I wonder if their homeworld does not have much light, as larger eyes aid in using what little light there is to see well. They also have ears that look like suction cups or sound-gathering devices. I bet their hearing is top-notch. They have two arms with hands that look able to do most anything, and they have two legs, so they don’t look too different from any life forms here in PnF land—I think they will fit right in.
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!Moon jumping
How on earth did cows ever start jumping over the moon? Glad you asked!
Long ago, no self respecting cow would ever dream of jumping anything higher than the fence around the vegetable garden (although, to be honest, most incursions happened as a result of innocently leaning in for a little nibble - those fences are ever so rickety to a cow who doesn't know her own strength!)
One day a band of gypsies was passing through the region (PnF Land is a favourite destination of theirs) and they invited the local pets to gather round their campfire and tell stories.
Well, the leader of the gypsies (a fine fellow by the unlikely name of Dydimus) was feeling especially mischievous this night, and decided to “spike” the barrel of delicious punch that the pets were sharing.
As each pet drank deeply, their eyes gained an extra twinkle, and they began to laugh and sing, and a few even danced! A formerly shy kitten suddenly snatched up the violin from a very surprised gypsy maiden, and began playing a merry tune for the pets to dance to!
The Scottie dog and the Chihuahua both found the scene quite hilarious, and began laughing and barking with glee!
Well, everyone knows that cows are great fun at a party, and several started a limbo contest, but soon found they liked jumping over the stick better than trying to get under it!
Unfortunately, being among the bigger pets at the party, no pet was able to hold the sticks high enough, so the ever adventurous cows began picking objects to jump over! Dydimus (known as “Diddle” to his friends) was slyly making suggestions to the enthusiastic cows, and they were soon jumping over the gypsy wagons, houses, and then tall trees!
One especially giddy bovine stopped to gaze up at the moon, and with a little whisper in her ear from Dydimus, she set her sights and took off! Imagine her delight at being the first pet to sail over the moon! Well, one by one, each cow had to try it, and the unlikely sport of moon-jumping was born!
Being skilled in the art of poetry and song, the gypsies soon immortalized the entire evening in very quaint verse, which begins with a nod to their beloved leader, “Hey, Diddle, Diddle, the cat and the fiddle…”
No pet knows what the dishes had to do with it, but there is much speculation about that very special “punch”...
