Dottie's Favorite Blacksburg Summer Activities

30 May, 2018 0 comments Leave a comment

Hi there Hokies, its officially summertime; meaning not only is there a plethora of parking spots in the Burg’, but also a bounty of fun things to do. Here are my top five things to do in Blacksburg during the summer!

  1. Enjoy a Farm to Table Dinner Cheese Dinner

As a native of Blacksburg, I enjoy eating and experiencing the local foods that come straight from the farms of our area. Additionally, I’m a big fan of cheese. I just think it’s gouda, if you know what I mean. The Virginia Cheese Fest’s Farm to Table Dinner is June 8th this year, only week away.  I can’t wait! I’m excited to feast on Virginia Cheese, spend a beautiful night at the Smithfield Plantation and enjoy a meal provided by The Palisades. I also heard that Chef T from Hell’s Kitchen will be making the dinner this year!  Maybe I’ll even get an autograph. You can purchase tickets for the dinner here:  https://www.virginiacheesefest.com/tickets

  1. Experience Blacksburg’s Annual Steppin’ Out Festival

This festival needs to be on your summer bucket list. If handcrafted art, food trucks and live music gets you clapping, you must attend Blacksburg’s annual Steppin’ Out festival. This large event has various local vendors, making it the perfect way to get all your holiday shopping done early, or get yourself the perfect gift. Additionally, it is a family friendly event, so bring the kids! Make sure to mark your calendars for August 3rd and 4th to experience Steppin’ Out.

  1. Go on a hiking adventure.

I always like to kick off my summer antics by rustling my feathers and hiking up to see the rushing falls of the Cascades. The two-mile hike is perfect for getting in touch with the greenery of the New River Valley and exercise.

  1. Spend the day on the river

Time-to-time I get a wild feather and have a desire to swim with the elements. If you’re like me and enjoy a day spent splashing in the water and enjoying nature, I suggest driving down to the New River Junction, located on Big Falls Rd. in McCoy.  You can spend the entire day floating down the river. Just make sure to wear your sunscreen!

  1. Check off #52 of the Hokie Bucket List

With all this time and sunshine on your hands, I recommend putting your summer days to good use by checking of #52 of the Hokie Bucket list…. Getting your picture with one of my flock members! My flock nests all over Blacksburg. Make sure to snap your picture with my family member, tag Gobble de Art in your post, and use #findyourhokiebird to get featured on our social pages! Here is a map to help get you started on your Hokie Bird Hunt: https://www.zeemaps.com/view?group=1092471&x=-80.386696&y=37.218042&z=5

 

These are just a few of my favorite things to do in the summer. What are yours? Let me know in the comments below!

A Time to Remember

13 April, 2018 0 comments Leave a comment

As we Hokies know, spring brings about some beautiful traditions and opportunities to uphold Ut Prosim. However, spring also brings some sad memories as well.  

This year marks the eleventh year since we lost 32 lovely Hokies. These 32 individuals deserve to be at the front of our memory this week, next week, and forever. As Hokies, it is our duty to commemorate these souls by showing each other true kindness, participating in altruistic service, and embracing the foundations of our community. We must show love in order to properly love those we so heartbreakingly lost.

As Nikki Giovanni so brilliantly put it, let us never forget that “We are Virginia Tech.” Monday will be a hard day for many families and individuals of our community. It will be a hard day for the Hokie community as we mourn those who lost their lives. It will be a hard day for the faculty and staff that so reluctantly had to experience the tragedy. It will be hard. But, to quote Giovanni once more, “We will prevail.” We will always prevail. We will always hold hope in our Hokie hearts and love in our Hokie souls. We will cherish each other as individuals, cherish each other as a community, cherish each other as friends, and cherish each other as large Hokie family.

We will never forget; but, we will never lose our hope for this nation and our love for this college. We remember.

 

In loving memory of the following lives:

Ross A. Alameddine, Christopher James Bishop, Brian R. Bluhm, Ryan Christopher Clark, Austin Michelle Cloyd, Jocelyne Couture-Nowak, Kevin P. Granata, Matthew Gregory Gwaltney, Caitlin Millar Hammaren, Jeremy Michael Herbstritt, Rachael Elizabeth Hill, Emily Jane Hilscher, Jarrett Lee Lane, Matthew Joseph La Porte, Henry J. Lee (Henh Ly), Liviu Librescu, G.V. Loganathan, Partahi Mamora Halomoan Lumbantoruan, Lauren Ashley McCain, Daniel Patrick O’Neil, Juan Ramon Ortiz-Ortiz, Minal Hiralal Panchal, Daniel Alejandro Perez Cueva, Erin Nicole Peterson, Michael Steven Pohle, Jr., Julia Kathleen Pryde, Mary Karen Read, Reema Joseph Samaha, Waleed Mohamed Shaalan, Leslie Geraldine Sherman, Maxine Shelly Turner, and Nicole Regina White

With love and endless hope,

Friday Favorites with Dottie: Hokie Hiking

02 February, 2018 0 comments Leave a comment

Greetings, Hokies!

It’s a beautiful day for January. The sun is shining and I can feel spring in my feathers. Around here, Hokies get antsy in the cold weather; cabin fever is a real issue. So, even though it’s cold, it’s still a sunny day that shouldn’t be wasted. Momma Dot and I plan on going on a hike. But of course, I want to help a Hokie out before I go. If you’re feeling adventurous today, here’s a list of my favorite hiking places near or around the ‘Burg. Each destination is unique and beautiful in its own way.

Bald Knob

One of my go-to places to hike is Bald Knob at Mountain Lake. The hike there is enough to get you sweating, but it’s not a very long hike at all. Plus, there are two routes: the difficult one and the moderate one. The difficult route is much shorter, but let me tell you Hokies, it is quite the workout. It is straight up the mountain, but it does allow one to feel in tune with nature. The alternative route is much like the New River Trail. It’s longer, snakes its way up the mountain, and is a graveled and leveled path. Either route is great, but the view is even greater. At the top of Bald Knob, a hiker can see blankets of mountains rolling over top of each other. It’s amazing, especially at sunset. Additionally, if you’re a fan of the movie Dirty Dancing, the movie was filmed at this area. You can walk around the museum area at the parking lot to reminisce on this film. This hiking area is about 40 minutes away from campus.

Buffalo Mountain

Buffalo mountain is a beautiful little area and a nice place to hike. It’s a longer hike than Bald Knob, but less intense. It’s a great family hike, especially if you have little ones. The view from the hump of the mountain is gorgeous, especially in the fall. You can see for miles from the top of this mountain. This hiking area is again, about 40-50 minutes away from Blacksburg.

The Cascades

The Cascades is a great spot to go to during all seasons of the year. Hop on 460, drive 30 minutes down the road from Blacksburg, and you’re there! If it’s a hot day, you can act as if the destination is a well-deserved treat and take a nice dip under the falls. The Cascades is a beautiful waterfall that crashes over the side of a mountain. It’s a nice transition from hiking to the top of a mountain. This hike is only 4 miles round trip, but it is beautiful. This hike is even worth it in the wintertime; I’ve seen the frozen Cascades and they are just as beautiful as the fully-thawed, fully-crashing Cascades. You should certainly take the time to visit.

Sharp Top Mountain

Sharp Top Mountain is one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever been on. Me and Momma Dot thought we’d never get to the top. It’s straight up the mountain for multiple miles, so make sure you pack plenty of water and plan your time well. However, I’ve never, ever been on a hike so beautiful. When I reached the top of the mountain, I stood in awe. It was absolutely and unbelievably stunning. I’d hike the mountain 100 more times if it means I’d get to see that view again. I highly recommend it. This mountain is about an hour and a half away from campus. It’s closer to Liberty’s campus, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit. Try it out on a weekend when you aren’t too busy. I assure you, you will not regret it.

Grayson Highlands State Park

Grayson Highlands State Park (also known as Mount Rogers) is an amazing park with hundreds and hundreds of acres and hiking trails. If you’re looking for waterfalls, the Highlands have them. If you’re looking for wild ponies, the Highlands have those too. If you’re looking for amazing views from the peak of mountain-tops, you guessed it. The Highlands have multiple. You can also camp and backpack at the Highlands. It is literally one of my favorite places on earth. About two hours away from Blacksburg, the Highlands offer a wide variety of activities and trails for all walks of life.

If you’re itching to get out Hokies, here are some places I recommend. Exercise is good for your body, especially after winter hibernation. Take a break from your school work and get out for a little while. You won’t regret visiting any of these locations.

Dottie's Holiday Gift Guide for Christmas 2018

06 December, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Hi ya'll, Dottie here.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Although every day is great in Blacksburg, Hokie holiday season is the best time of all. However, sometimes it’s really hard to figure out what gift to give your special Hokie. Sometimes, it’s hard to decide whether to make a gift from the heart, buy something your Hokie needs, or purchase something your Hokie will truly love. Struggling? Well worry no more, my feathered friends,  Below is my holiday gift guide full of gifts that every Hokie will love.

That’s right, you can take me or one of my family member’s home for Christmas. Not only would we love to spend the Holidays with you, but we would also love to be a part of your flock family. We even look festive in Holiday hats! We’re sure your favorite Hokie would love to have us. We can hang out in your office or home, we make great company.

All Hokies must face the dreadful wind of the Drillfield; it’s an inevitable feature of Hokie life. Blacksburg winters are cold, windy and hard. Get your Hokie a hoodie to protect his or her ears, face and body from the harsh winter wind. Trust me, your Hokie will appreciate this thoughtful and useful gift.

One of the best things about Virginia Tech is its size. It’s such a large campus. However, during heated summer days, walking all over campus can get rough. Hokies get thirsty with every turn. Luckily, Virginia Tech has water bottle stations all over campus. However, these stations are no good if your Hokie doesn’t have a water bottle! Come summer time, your Hokie will appreciate this necessity.

Need a stocking stuffer? A thoughtful gift for that Blacksburg local or Hokie at heart that has everything? Why not get them a postcard book? This gift is useful and fun for any Hokie lover. The postcard book is filled with pictures of of the original flock members. Your gift recipient will love the thoughtful gift because it reminds them of home.

One of the trendy fads of today is wearing Alex and Ani bracelets. These cute bracelets are price friendly and are made from recycled materials right here in America. Almost every girl on campus has at least one of these bracelets. They also make great accessories at your next alumni tailgate.  Add this to your Hokie’s collection by purchasing a few more, or add this to your own Hokie wish list.  

Are you into meaningful gifts? I know I am! Giving someone a gift that brings tears is the best feeling in the world. One way to get this response is by creating a Hokie T-shirt quilt, especially if your Hokie is a senior. Take your Hokies VT t-shirts, sew them together, and watch their eyes light up on Christmas morning.  They won’t be disappointed. You can even add a Gobble de Art t-shirt to the t-shirt mix remind them of their fun Blacksburg home.

The good thing about Virginia Tech is its vibrant school colors. These colors are in style year-round! If you’re feeling crafty, you can easily make a Hokie a wreath for a Blacksburg door. This wreath can be hung year round, and every time your Hokie sees it, they’ll think of you.

This book is a great gift or stocking stuffer. They are great for those who have lived in Blacksburg for years, are new to the town or have moved away. Hokies will love this book because it serves as a memory of the special places the town has to offer. The book is chock full of pictures that children will enjoy too.

Hokie canvas crafts are the trendy thing to do. Paint the shape of Virginia or outline the shape in string and watch your creation come to life. Highlight the area of Blacksburg, fill the canvas will a cute pattern or meaningful quotes, frame it, and give it to your Hokie this holiday season. They’ll cherish this gift forever.

 

Of course, there are many more gifts you can get your Hokie this holiday season. I just wanted to give you a starting point. Christmas is in 19 days Hokies! It’s time to start shopping or crafting!  

 

Xoxo,

Dottie's Quick and Easy Thanksgiving Recipe

20 November, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Hi, guys. Dottie here. Thanksgiving is this week! To prepare you for this glorious (and terrifying) holiday, I wanted to give you a Thanksgiving recipe Momma Dot and I always use. We don’t eat meat in our nest, so we mainly eat side dishes. But luckily, side dishes are just as filling! I’m sure you know how to make the usual: green beans, mashed potatoes and stuffing. Most people like to stick to their familiar recipes. But if you’re getting tired of the same old same old every Thanksgiving, I have the perfect dish to spice up your dinner table. Today, I want to give you an easy recipe that few people use on Thanksgiving but many people will enjoy. What’s the dish? The glorious hash brown casserole.

Hashbrown casserole has become a staple at the Dot table on Thanksgiving. We love this dish. It’s filling, cheesy and delicious. And the best part? It’s so easy. All you’ll need is one bag of frozen shredded hashbrowns, one can of cream of chicken soup, one bag of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, one small onion and one container of sour cream. Make sure your hashbrowns are thawed before you start this dish. First, mix your sour cream with half the bag of shredded cheddar cheese and the whole can of cream of chicken soup. Mix it thoroughly, then chop up your onion and add it into the mixture. When all of that’s mixed together, add your hashbrowns. Mix one more time and then line your casserole dish. I recommend a disposable dish because it’s easier to store and easier to clean. Cook your casserole for 45-55 minutes, pull it out of the oven, and serve! Some say this dish is feather lickin’ good. Or maybe that’s just me…

Momma Dot and I can’t wait to eat this casserole for Thanksgiving. It makes the perfect addition to the usual dishes. And, if you’re on a budget, this casserole is for you. At max, this dish should cost  $10.00. If you have certain items laying around the house, it could only cost you about $5.00. I’m not sure what’s more amazing, the taste or the price. Anyways, this Hokie loves to chow down on all Thanksgiving dishes. Except… well… turkey. I hope you other Hokies get to try this amazing dish out for Thanksgiving. You won’t regret it, but the scale might.

 

Have a tasty day, Hokies!

Friday Favorites: Dottie's Dining Hall Diet

17 November, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

As a Hokie bird, I’m on Virginia Tech’s campus quite a bit. I greet students on the Drillfield, I travel to sporting events to support other Hokies, I participate in all the campus events, and I certainly like to admire the Hokie Stone as I’m walking around. However, one of my favorite activities to do on campus is … EAT! Virginia Tech has amazing food. It always has and it always will. There’s a variety of different foods to try from different dining halls, and I love each and every one for different reasons. Today, I want to give you the details on a few of my personal favorites. If you’re up for some fun, or you’re feeling hungry, take the Dottie challenge and try all my favorite dishes one week. I call this challenge the Dottie Diet.

Monday: West End

West End happens to be one of my favorite places on campus. It has a wide variety of foods, and they’re all high quality. You want Italian food? West End has it. You want steak? West End has it. You want a vegetarian wrap? West End has that too. As a Hokie bird, I definitely don’t eat meat… I am a bird after all. So, my favorite dish at West End is a veggie burger from the Fighting Gobbler. I like my burger with cheese, tomato, onion, and lettuce. And don’t forget a half basket of fries! Those seasoned slices are pure heaven.

Tuesday: D2

I like to call Tuesdays, D2uesdays! The day after Monday is the day you need the most food. All that Monday stress wears and tears at your mind. Food is the perfect way to fill those tears. Luckily, D2 is a buffet that offers every food imaginable. And oh man, D2 throws an amazing Thanksgiving meal for all Tech students. However, my favorite meal from D2 is pretty simple: Egg drop soup with wonton strips. This meal is perfect for a cold day, especially during the winter time. It’s different from the usual soups like tomato and chicken (ew) noodle too. The wontons add a perfect salty flavor to it as well. Simple, but delicious.

Wednesday: ABP

I feel like Au Bon Pain is underappreciated; this little soup shop is just as amazing as West End. While it doesn’t have the variety that West End and Turner provides, it certainly has the quality. This dining hall is perfect for lunchtime. It’s enough food to fill you up, but not too much. My favorite meal here may sound a little weird to you guys, but it’s delicious I swear. I like a sandwich with only tomatoes and cucumbers on toasted white loaf. Yes, that’s all! Add that sandwich to a delicious cup of broccoli and cheese soup and you have the perfect lunchtime meal.

Thursday: Turner

Turner is most students favorite dining hall on campus. I’m inclined to agree that it is pretty great. Like most students, my favorite restaurant in Turner is Qdoba. I love that place. My favorite meal? A veggie bowl with the following items: brown rice, pintos, queso, two scoops of pico de gallo, shredded cheese, lettuce, tortilla strips, and sour cream. Put the lid on that bowl, shake it up real good, and you have the best meal on earth.

Friday: Hokie Grill

Friday is the best day of the week. Most students get to relax on Fridays, and it’s normal to want a quick and easy meal. Hokie Grill is perfect for a lazy Friday. Simply go in the doors, grab your food, and run out. My favorite meal is an assortment of sides from Blue Ridge Barbeque. I love those corn muffins! It’s just like eating cake.

Saturday: Owens

Owens has a great assortment of foods to choose from and an even better assortment of desserts. There’s an entire station dedicated to desserts alone. The beer-battered french fries from Owens are amazing and the smoothies are the perfect on-the-go breakfast. My favorite meal from Owens is a cheese quesadilla with salsa and sour cream. I love how you can easily make your own quesadilla. It’s simple and easy, but it makes up for the ease in flavor.

Sunday: Deets

Deets has a very Starbucksy vibe. It’s a cute little coffee shop with a peaceful atmosphere that’s perfect for catching up on homework or studying. On Sundays, peace is necessary. It’s calm before the Monday storm. Deets has the perfect café foods to munch on. At Deets, I can’t choose a favorite food. It’s all so good. I love every pastry and every cup of coffee. However, my favorite ice cream flavor is simple ol’ chocolate. It’s a classic and makes for the perfect milkshake.

There you have it! Dottie’s favorite foods from every dining hall. Don’t forget, if you’re feeling spiffy this week, try out all my favorite foods on campus. It can be fun, filling, and entertaining.  It’ll also be a great way to prepare your stomach for Thanksgiving.

Don’t go hungry, Hokies!

Dottie Thanks Veterans

14 November, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Hello, Hokies! Saturday was Veteran’s Day and out of respect I want to say a huge thank you to all the men and women who have served—or are still serving— our country. There are so many things about this country to love. Sometimes, we forget how beautiful and wonderful our country really is. Sometimes, we forget how lucky we truly are. Sometimes, we forget how amazing it is to be an American. Sometimes, we forget that we have it easy, that there are soldiers risking their lives for us. It’s easy to forget. But today I want to remember. Today I want to take a moment to tell you why we should all be thankful, why we should all be grateful.

First, let me start with my Hokies. I may be a tad bit biased, but I think that Virginia Tech is the most wonderful place on earth.What makes the university even better is how it values veterans. Virginia Tech is a military school; it has a long history with the military and still cherishes service today. The university goes out of its way to help and hire veterans and those who serve.  Thank you, Virginia Tech for appreciating those who serve and acknowledging their sacrifice. Thank you for teaching your students what service truly means, by embodying UT Prosim. And a very big thank you to the cadets who help our college thrive, create a loving and serving environment, and plan on serving our country as well.

Now, I want to talk to you about why we should thank all of our countries veterans. Today, most of us woke up in warm beds safely, no fear in our hearts or minds. Today, most of us ate a nice, quiet breakfast, undisturbed by chaos and warfare. Today, we can voice our opinions about politics and government without the being harmed or imprisoned. Today, we can drive safely to work, humming to our favorite tunes. Today, we can hold our children in our arms. Today, we can do anything. Today, we are free.

Soldiers and Veterans, thank you for your service. Because of you, us citizens have freedoms. Because of you, us citizens have hope. Because of you, us citizens are safe. I hope you all had a wonderful Veterans day.

XOXO

Dottie.

Dottie’s Spooktacular Halloween

31 October, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

BOO! Did I scare you?

It’s Halloween, Hokies. Today is going to be a spooktacular day. Little monsters are going to be running around, princesses and pirates will be knocking on every door, candy is going to be handed out for free, Halloween movie marathons will be on television, and Jack-o-Lanterns will light up the night for miles. It’s going to be amazing.

I have some super cool plans for today. First of all, I’m going to get ready in my costume. It’s a super scary costume: A Wahoo. I’m dressing up in orange and blue and everything. I even have the hat! Hokies everywhere will be terrified of such a hideous sight. After I finish getting ready and putting on my costume, I plan on strutting around the Drillfield for a little while. I want to spook all the Hokies and hand out some candy. Oh man, I love candy, so I’m buying a lot so I can have some too. Herhsey’s, Twix, Reese’s, Skittles, M&Ms… My beak is watering!

After I walk around the Drillfield and greet my fellow Hokies with candy, I plan on going back to my nest to prepare for all the little monster visitors. I’ll light my pumpkins, hang all of the egg carton bats I made and add some spider webs to all the corners of my nest. I went all out this year and got a fog machine. It makes for the perfect haunted atmosphere. I also made goodie bags for each of the little creatures that come to visit me today. There’s spider rings, candy, eyeballs, glow sticks, and all kinds of goodies in each bag. And of course, you know I added Hokie stickers as well. What’s Halloween without a hint Hokie?

After the trick-or-treaters stop coming, I plan on turning off all the lights, cuddling up under my favorite blanket, and watching scary movies all night with Momma Dot. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I hope the movies scare the feathers off-of me.

But that’s enough about my plans. What are you doing today? What are you dressing up as? Are you as excited as I am? You should be!

 

Have a spooktaculary haunting Halloween!

 

XOXO

Dottie's Top 3 Tasty Tailgate Recipes

07 August, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Hiya Folks, it’s Dottie bringing you another blog post! This week I’m getting to talk about my two favorite things… FOOTBALL and FOOD! Hope you enjoy!

With football season coming up, I’m sure we’re all counting down the days. I can already smell the burgers on the grill at tailgates and hear the distant sounds of Enter Sandman.  With Hokie football fast approaching, it’s time to start perfecting your festive Hokie tailgate menu!

Not trying to brag or anything, but over the years I’ve been to my fair share of tailgates. Some may even say I’m a PROFESSIONAL tailgater! So today, I’ve decided to share with you my favorite tailgate treats that are not only simple and affordable but TASTY! Without further ado, here’s my top 3 Hokie bird approved tailgate treats that will be sure to spice up your festivities this football season!

First on my list is…

~ 3 Ingredient Meatballs~

Meatballs are a classic tailgate treat. They are perfect for sharing *or if you’re like me you can eat an entire plate to yourself! * This recipe is perfect for game day and is super simple to make all you need is:

  1. Frozen Meat balls (Pre-cooked).
  2. A jar of Grape Jelly.
  3. BBQ Sauce of your choice.

And that’s it! Crazy right?!

Just mix your ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours then your perfect bite sized snacks are ready to eat!

Next on the list,

~ Hokie Themed Cake Pops~

There’s nothing a Hokie bird loves more than consuming bite sized pieces of maroon and orange cake on a stick. *I’m drooling just thinking about it! * These tasty treats are a tailgate essential and can even double as decorative piece as well! Kinda’ like you’re killing two… with one stone… well… you know how that expression goes.

Anyways, these are super fun plus easy to make! Just follow the recipe and decorate your cake pops with maroon and orange and you’re good to go!

My Last Hokie tailgate essential is something a little more savory to go with your sweet treats!

~Tater Tot Skewers~

This treat can be made in advance or at your tailgate! Just bring the pre-cooked tots to your tailgate, some skewers, and whatever topping you want (My favorite is bacon and cheese!).  Heat them over the grill! Your guests will love this fun and easy to eat dish!

Well Hokie Fans, I’ve got to go. All this talk about food is making me hungry! May your tailgates be filled with laughter, friends and of course tater tots!!

Xoxo,

Dottie

Hello World, I'm Dottie

20 July, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Hi there Hokie friends,

After making my debut as the voice of Gobble de Art, I have appreciated all the love and support. I can’t wait to take you on my many adventures in Blacksburg, and throughout the beautiful Hokie Nation. Before I begin sharing my adventures with you, I wanted to introduce myself a little better so you all can get to know me.

As you know, my name is Hokie Pokie Dot, Dottie for short. I’ve nested in the beautiful mountain town of Blacksburg Virginia my whole life—no complaints here! I love watching football, but I’m surprisingly good at tennis. I enjoy long walks on the Huckleberry, but I am the worst at flying—heights terrify me! You might as well consider me a linguist because I am fluent in two languages; English and Gobbler. I love celebrating, but Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday… for reasons I don’t want to talk about.

My family always comes first:  Momma Hokie Pokie Dot, Mr. Executive, Lieutenant Colonel Cadet, Sir Fore the Hokies, Hokie Stone (we call him Steve) and LPD bird. I have a ton of extended family too! My Momma lives at the Hyatt in Blacksburg, but my siblings and I don’t have homes yet. If you are interested in adopting us, you can find us at our nest, https://www.gobbledeart.org/collections/all?page=2.

Anyways, it’s nice to chat with you all. Bye for now, I can’t wait to see you on my next adventure! Get the latest updates by following me and my flock family on Instagram at gobble_de_art.

 

With love,

Dottie

xoxo
