Benny & Penny Go For The Big Swim

Remember when you were young, and you learned how to swim? Maybe you took lessons at the pool, or your parents taught you. Either way, it probably looked and felt a little like this!

“It’s their first swim on the “Big Waters” of our pond enclosure at the Woodlands Wildlife Sanctuary, after being raised in a smaller pen with only a baby swimming pool. Their excitement is contagious! These goslings, and all the other orphaned and injured babies at our sanctuary, will be released back to their natural habitats.” -Monika M.

In Which Snickers Gets The Treatment

“So I’ve seen this picture of the cutest little dog floating around Facebook (L) with its fur in pigtails looking ever so scrumptious,” says Cuteporter Emily P. “We thought we would give it a go with our crazy 6 month old Maltese Shih Tzu pup Snickers (R) (or Snickerdoodle as we like to call her.)

Do Ya Wanna Play Do Ya Do Ya Do Ya

This little Prairie Dog is simply not gonna take no for an answer. And if the cat really doesn’t wanna play, well, there’s always that cardboard box. (Great Jazz Hands display and Backwards Movement going on, too.)
