Everybody Loves Watermelon

Sometimes I can see the big dog inside the little puppy.  

Did you know puppies like watermelon?  They don't like it as much as chickens do.  Having a half of a watermelon in the yard is good entertainment.  

It's like watching animals around the watering hole while on safari, right?  I imagine it is a little less thrilling, but I'm easily entertained.

Once the dogs were finished tasting, the chickens got serious about eating.  

They worked on eating the watermelon for two days.  Even the little chicks spent time perched on the rind pecking away.  When a big chicken would wander over for a nibble, the chicks would scatter and wait until the watermelon was unattended before coming back for seconds.  

By the end of the first day, the watermelon was half eaten.  The chickens didn't seem to mind that the rain filled the rind.  What's a little more water in a watermelon?  I'm sure they just thought it was extra hydrating that way - watermelon soup.

By the end of the weekend, there wasn't a bite left.  They didn't waste a drop!
