Oh Gawd, It’s Aunt Doris

(First, it’ll be the chin scratch — yep, there it is — to be followed by the painful cheek pinch and the cooing of “Have you been a good girl, Beatrice?”)

It’s a baby dik-dik borned at the Chester Zoo. Story, mo’ pitchas here.

    The Chester Zoo is obviously ruled by a dik-dik-tatorship.

  2. Hey, watch it about Aunt Dorises. I’m an Aunt Theresa, after all. 😛

  3. So: face of an owl + mohawk + bun ears + capybara rump + twiglet legs of a fawn = dikdik
    Auntie-Lope, I get it . . .

  4. Here’re more recent pics, peeps: plink plink! and plbblblt!:

    Also – I was in an airport this afternoon and saw that someone had put a Hello Kitty sticker on the defibrillator machine in the terminal. Made. My. Day. Was that done by one of y’all??

    1: a cynical personality in a dik-dik is an unthought-of juxtaposition for me.

    2: wow now THAT is one (cough) HEALTHY, PLUMP lil gal (the dik-dik not the human connected to the hand) there!!! No impending starvayshe, on that lil one!!!
