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. :P

    I LOVE it! My mom’s name was Doris so she was Aunt Doris to many, many nieces and nephews! Hooray for Aunt Doris!

  4. *waving pompoms* Dor-is! Dor-is! Dor-is!

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

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

    and I think little dik-diklet makes a very good Beatrice

    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??

    OHMAHGAWHD an ACTUAL HK (on a defibrillatorthingamajigg)????


  14. Ok, this is cute but I think I still prefer the desktop model.

  15. No use of the dik dik tag?

  16. Just the right size for my desktop – that must be the one I ordered!

  17. Fird Birfle says:

    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!!!
