Suddenly, Penguins in Dashikis

To welcome a delegation of African leaders to Japan, the Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise park held a parade of penguins of African origin dressed in colorful tunics. So far, there’s no word if they’ll be coming to America.

Miami Marlins Adopt-O-Mania

On Sunday, June 2, the Miami Marlins did not bat 1000. They batted 102! That’s how many furry friends found forever homes thanks to the Miami Marlins Ayudan (Spanish for “help”) Team of community outreach volunteers, along with the Humane Society, Animal Services and The Cat Network! That’s some major league teamwork, peeps.

Go Marlins! Look who’s on the Home Team now!

You’re a Brave Pug, Orange You!

Over 400 years ago a pug named Pompey, saved the life of his owner, William the Prince of Orange. It was near the battlefront in the Dutch struggle against the Spanish when Pompey, sleeping at the prince’s feet, foiled a midnight attack against the prince and saved his life. Soon after, the Pug became the official dog of the Netherlands House of Orange and the Royal Monarchy of the Netherlands.
