Lions and Zebras and Bears! Oh, My!

So, you remember when I told you Mom and Dad went to the zoo the weekend before Howl-O-Weenie?
Well, I wanted to share some of the photos they took, you know, other than the penguin ones you've seen already.

First they saw the polar bear.  

 Look how HOOGE his paws are! 

He was really enjoying that carrot he was eating.

They saw the lions napping in their giant sun puddle.

Talk about HOOGE!  
Mr. Lion's head is enormous!

Do you see Mrs. Lion hiding from us?

They also saw some zebras.

This picture cracks me up!  
It appears as though the ostrich scared the poop 
right outta that striped horse! 

The hippos were quite active and
they have the cutest little ears!

 Momma didn't get a picture when this guy opened his mouth and made a really loud noise.  She said she was enjoying the moment but I think she is just slow.

Of course they had to make a stop to see the monkeys.
This one sat down right in front of Mom.  Then they all left.  I'm guessing it was time for dinner!

I hope you weren't too bored with these pics from the Kansas City Zoo.  A lot of animals were inside because of the cool weather.  Daddy was sad that he didn't get to see the giraffes.  Apparently they have their own heated barn.

Hopefully, you will get to see some photos of me at the dog park soon.  We are still having trouble uploading images from the memory card to the laptop.  These pictures of the zoo are nice and all but this is supposed to be about me, right?  Not a place for Momma to show off pictures of other animals!

Other animals are fun but of course pics of you are the best! We are wondering what you think of Stanley "on duty". Is your daddy gonna be upset to find out he rides a Hog?

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Sometimes you just have to humor your humans and let them have a little fun with their pictures! I'm sure we'll have more fun seeing pictures of you, but the zoo animals are kind of interesting! ;)

We loved all the zoo pics, Taffy. Mom has been there with the grandkids, so we wonder why we can't go too. Isn't that story about the dog from Shawnee who can predict polar bear pregnancy interesting? We can't wait to find out if the resident polar bears are expecting.

I love the polar bear most of all!!!! Those are enormous paws!

I, too, am wondering what your dad thinks of Stanley riding a hog. Is everything okay?

We've see a lion up close and personal before. He was fed raw chicken and he came close to the caged bus so we can take a close look at him. His head was two times bigger than our heads!
