It’s Chloe the dancing cow!

I have so many cow sightings to show you  and I’m not doing a great job at catching up, am I? But I swear I’ll get there, and so for today I’d like to introduce you to the very sexy Chloe, the dancing cow.

We found her at our local Michael’s art & craft store and we even tried it as it entices us on the box. Well, you won’t believe it but Chloe the cow wiggles and shakes her booty, and even does the splits. Now, how sexy is that? OK, maybe not as sexy as Daisy the pole dancing cow, but I think it’s a close second. Don’t you agree?

Springtime means happy cows, very happy cows!

Having a Facebook page for Every Day I See A Cow has a few privileges. It helps me reach people through Facebook and interact with them. And once in a while, someone will post something about cows they want me to see.

Recently the group Not In My Cuppa, whose goal is to bring awareness about the well-being of dairy cows in the UK and improve their conditions, invited me to check out a link on my wall. The link went to the Cow Dance website, created by the WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals).

If you want to smile and laugh for a few minutes, I invite you to visit their website and watch a few videos of very happy cows being released in the fields after being locked up in the barn for the winter. Check them out jumping, kicking their back legs in the air, rolling in the grass… They couldn’t be happier. Here’s just one video of dancing cows to give you a taste.

It’s the cow book parade at the library

Yesterday I dropped off some books at the library that were due then, and today it was time to pick up new books I had ordered. My librarian has played jokes on me before, putting children’s books with cows on the front covers in the past, but today I think she overdid it. I didn’t take photos of all the “cow” books on display but I think you’ll get the picture.

Aw, don’t they all look happy? Even the ducks are smiling.

If you’ve ever wondered what cows and sheep do at night, this book may have the answer for you.

Alright, cows could be dancing at night too – doesn’t it look like fun, and sexy? Is this dirty dancing?

I almost borrowed this book out of curiosity. The more I look at it, the more I regret not grabbing it off the shelf. Can you imagine what happens to a cow at sea?

Now I did grab this one and I read it tonight with my kids. Quite a funny story, about an Irish farmer who thinks his wife works less than him… He asks to trade chores for a day and things don’t go as planned, to say the least. I don’t think the cow will forget its adventure either, after falling off the roof and closely avoiding death by strangulation. I liked the artwork and the story – I’d recommend this one to anyone who wants to have a good laugh. Heck, there’s even Irish ale involved – what’s not to like?

Now, be on the lookout for more cow books because I got to borrow more than what you see here. Yes, there were that many cows on display at the library today. Was today Cow Appreciation Day by any chance?

Cow video you don’t want to miss

Every day new cow spottings come as a surprise, as I never know when and where they’ll occur (nobody’s handed me a schedule yet). My first cow sighting today happened after breakfast when I heard my oldest say, “Hey mama, take a look this way!” So I did, and this is what I saw:

Haha, thanks, buddy, you’re very funny! Could someone please tell him it’s called April Fool’s Day, not April Fool’s Month?

A few hours later, I was browsing the Legoland California website to gather precious information. You see, we’re thinking about taking a family vacation and the two options we’re considering at this time are Disneyland California and Legoland California. One requires a hotel stay, the other doesn’t. Both parks are not cheap and will bring my kids to levels of energy I’m not sure I can handle. I think either way, I’ll need a vacation by myself after our family vacation!

As I was looking at the Legoland interactive map, I spotted these friendly bovines:

If you don’t believe me, see it for yourself on the Legoland California interactive map, in the top right corner. These cows are strategically placed in green pastures behind the Legoland Resort Hotel. Is that supposed to make me want to stay there overnight? Having witnessed the purchasing power of cows and commented on it in this blog, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Lego people were trying to tell me something. I feel like calling the hotel and asking them if there really are cows in that spot.

Now for my most memorable - and I have to say most disturbing - cow of the day, I have to thank a fellow WordPress blogger at Knotrune, who emailed me this YouTube link earlier today:

I’m not sure I want to smile, laugh, cry, throw up, or else, but I can’t stop watching. This cow video is mesmerizing and only proves one thing. Someone out there is way, way more obsessed about cows than I am!

GE Ecomagination gives cows rock star power

For today’s post, I can only blame myself give credit to one of my blog’s visitors, Trevis T. He sent me an email asking me if I knew where the daily cow sighting theory originated from. Unfortunately I didn’t have an answer for him, but he got me thinking and I’m now working on the case. I’ll make sure to let you know if I find out the crazy person who came up with this daily cow concept!

So Travis was nice enough to inform me of a TV commercial he just saw. Remember that I don’t have cable TV, so my exposure to TV ads is limited to what I see on my computer when I watch TV series on Hulu. I’ve never seen the commercial below so when Trevis mentioned it, I was intrigued and felt compelled to check it out.

Oh boy, I’m not sure I ever wanted to see that, so I’m warning you. Watch this at your own risk, especially if you haven’t seen it before.

Wow, how freakish is that??? I really admire GE and their Ecomagination team for their use of cow manure to generate energy and share the news with all of us. But seriously, give the cows rock star power? I find the cheering crowd fascinating though, as there are apparently many more cow fans than I ever thought possible! After seeing this GE Ecomagination commercial, I can only imagine I’ll have nightmares happy dreams all night long. Thanks, Trevis!
