Oh, the Hugged Manatee!

This little orphan isn’t a huge manatee, but she will be, thanks to the round-the-clock care of Sea World, which has rescued 23 manatees in 2010. The park hopes to return her to the wild once she’s big enough.

Nice work, Nick G. and everyone at Sea World.

You know, on second thought, you go ahead. Really, that’s fine.

Hide and Go Squeak

“… nine hundred and ninety eight, nine hundred and ninety nine, one thousand!”

“OK, did all you mice find a hiding place? Good, now stay there and let me sleep.”

We’d let a cutie like Isabella find us every time, Jessica C.

It’s Winter in July!

As we swelter and simmer in triple-digit despair, let’s cool off with this video of a pup engaged in a spirited game of Fetch the Sled.

Wow, the 4-H Program on this Campus Must Really Be Hardcore

Says CurlygirlKathy: “I was walking through town in Northampton, MA and came across this sight. Only in a crazy town like Northampton would there be a place to park your cow while you go shopping!”
