Confused husky pup
He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.
Oh my gosh, that explains why some dogs put their head to one side when you talk to them. They’re not confused, they’re trying to listen to us better. Awww.
Oh GOOD. Doctor Who / Malcolm Tucker mashups are still a thing.
Hah. I totally missed the finger thing in the actual episode. I’m assuming the kiddies did too.

EYEBROWS. HE GETS IT.
The kakapo is one of the rarest parrots in the world:It’s flightless
It’s the world’s heaviest parrot
It’s possibly the oldest living bird and
It has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres
I suppose it could be considered a moderate success of conservation efforts that there’s now 126 kakapo on the planet, up from 49 in the mid ’90s. But it’s not really anything to be complacent about. Fossil records indicate that in pre-Polynesian times, the kakapo was New Zealand’s third most common bird, before being pretty much wiped out by human settlers and predators introduced by them. Poor little buggers.
