Wondrous Wildlife

Animal Analogies

 

animalogy_marketingIt is funny how many times we compare ourselves or others to animals, so just for fun here are some.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. If you lie down with dogs, you’ll wake up with fleas. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander...

He’s a dirty rat. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. The bluebird of happiness. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill. He’s as wild as a Cajun coon. He’s all bark and no bite.

Don’t go digging up an old grave, leave that to the dogs. He’s as stubborn as a mule. It will happen as soon as the cows come home. It’s raining cats and dogs. Watch out for the two legged snakes. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. You’re as little as a tad pole. He’s as quick as a cat. She’s as quiet as a mouse. He’s as slippery as an eel. Slow as a turtle. Wilder than a March hare. Sly as a fox. A cold nose means a warm heart. He has bats in his belfry. She is as blind as a bat. She’s an old bat. You don’t have the sense God gave little geese. Like water off a duck’s back.

Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noon-day sun. I’m so hungry I could eat a horse. I wish I was a fly on the wall. The wise old owl. Silly as a goose. He’s as strong as an ox. He’s as gentle as a lamb. He’s as proud as a peacock. He’s like a bull in a china shop. The early bird gets the worm. The second mouse gets the cheese. I sold my cow, so I don’t need your bull. Mad as a wet hen. That’s just ducky. It’s the cat’s pajamas. I feel like a salmon swimming upstream. He’s as happy as a clam. She has a memory like an elephant. Now that’s the cat’s meow. Like a cat on a hot tin roof. Let sleeping dogs lay. It’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys. They are like a herd of sheep. She is a social butterfly.

Don’t kill the goose that lays the golden eggs. My goose is cooked. That’s something to crow about. Like a moth to a flame. It’s raining cats and dogs. I’ve got a frog in my throat. She’s just the bee’s knees. We’re off like a herd of turtles. I don’t want to hear another peep out of you. When pigs fly. I smell a rat. She has clammy hands and crow’s feet. He’s pigheaded. I was buffaloed. I’m as snug as a bug in a rug. She was an eager beaver. Don’t buy a pig in a poke. He’s all hat, and no cattle. If the horse throws you off get right back on.

I know there are many more, but we hope you had a chuckle or two.

We would like to thank all our volunteers for their continued support at various events. If you find a wild animal in need of help you may contact us or if we are unavailable, you may contact the Fire Dept. 766-3615. If you are able to assist the animal, you can take it to Dr. Pepe Magaña in Riberas for treatment.
