This little baby is a rare pygmy hippo, and the newest member of the Lowry Park Zoo family.

Busch Gardens has a New BABY GIRAFFE!!

  • 6:20 am Monday, November 27th, 2017 by Danielle

While we were busy celebrating chowing down on turkey and stuffing last Thursday, the team at Busch Gardens was busy bringing a new baby giraffe into the world!!

The ‘tiny’ little guy weighed in at 150-POUNDS and was already 6-feet tall when he was born. Celina, one of the park’s giraffes, is his mommy.

Busch Gardens posted some pictures of him to their Facebook page and say they’re letting YOU pick his name!!

SO. STINKING. CUTE. ❤

This Guy Built His Dog His VERY OWN ROOM!!

  • 6:47 am Thursday, August 24th, 2017 by Danielle

This dog is SERIOUSLY the luckiest.

When his owner realized he needed a place to sleep…instead of throwing a puppy bed in the corner, he BUILT HIM HIS VERY OWN BEDROOM!!

It’s fully-equipped with a bed, overhead light, and even pictures of his family on the wall.

Cutest. Thing. EVER.

A Crying Weatherman, Newborns Dressed Like the Eclipse, These are the BEST Things About Yesterday…

  • 8:20 am Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 by Danielle

Ok…we could go on about yesterday’s eclipse FOREVERRRRRR.

I mean, even here – where coverage was only about 81% – it was pretty darn spectacular…

But let’s just get the BEST of the best out of the way in this last blog – and then I’ll shut-up about it – for another 7 years at least… 😉

Here we go!!

1. THE NEWBORNS IN ST LOUIS THAT WERE DRESSED LIKE THE ECLIPSE!!

Babies born yesterday at St. Luke’s hospital in St. Louis got the Solar Eclipse treatment yesterday…

The eclipse-themed buntings (I call them blankets, but apparently that’s the proper name) were given to each baby’s [More]

My Dog of the Week is…JESSIE!!

  • 8:20 am Friday, August 4th, 2017 by Danielle

THAT EAR…I CAN’T HANDLE IT!!!!!

Jessie is my #DogOfTheWeek and she’s a TOTAL snuggler.

She’s almost 2, which means she’s perfect for the family looking for a lifelong companion – who may not be able to take on a puppy right now, but still wants a dog that is full of energy.

This baby girl LOVESSSSS to play…I mean, she’s an Australian Shepherd mix – duh!!

Find out more about Jessie here and take your whole family to meet her TODAY at the Humane Society of Pinellas!! ❤

A Deer Keeps Photobombing Kid’s Photoshoots…and it’s the Cutest Thing EVERRRRR

  • 8:06 am Monday, July 24th, 2017 by Danielle

Camie Bolin is a photographer in Texas.

Her pictures are beautiful as-is, but a deer at one of her shoot locations has made a couple of her sessions even MORE adorable.

Camie says that on two separate occasions now, the deer has popped up during a photoshoot, calmly wandering into the pictures, and even letting the kids she was photographing PET her.

The pictures she got are INCREDIBLE!!

Melt. My. Heart.

Ummmm…is that a GREEN Puppy?!?!

  • 7:42 am Monday, July 17th, 2017 by Danielle

Oh you know, nothing to see here, just a golden retriever named Rio who gave birth to a GREEN PUPPY last week…

Rio had a litter of 9 puppies – and her owner says she ‘couldn’t believe it’ when she laid eyes on the green pup.

Although it’s EXTREMELY rare (there have only been three other documented times where a green puppy was born to a mom), there is an explanation. Apparently, there’s a bile in the placenta, that, when mixed with the mom’s amniotic fluid, could temporarily change a pup’s fur color.

And his name is???

Tiger Snuggles Up to Pregnant Woman’s Belly

  • 7:30 am Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 by Danielle

This tiger snuggling up to a pregnant woman’s belly is the SWEETEST thing you’ll see all week… ❤

The girl you see here is Natasha. She and her cousin were at an event at the Potawatomi Zoo in Indiana when they decided to stop and check out the tigers.

Apparently this sweet tiger had very maternal instincts. In the video, you can see her come directly up to Natasha and try to snuggle up close.

When Natasha shows the tiger her pregnant belly, it immediately nestles it’s head towards her stomach.

My heart is legit  melting out of my body. ❤

This Guy Got His GF and Her Dog Matching Presents because He’s a GENIUS!!

  • 7:36 am Friday, June 9th, 2017 by Danielle

When you hear about something this cute, you assume that the couple involved MUST be in the ‘new relationship’ phase, right?

YEP.

Nicholas Purvis and his girlfriend, Cassandra, have been dating for 8-months (although they have been friends for about 6-years, so I’ll give them that).

When it came time to celebrate Cassandra’s birthday, Nicholas had the BEST IDEA EVER.

He told BuzzFeed News that although they’re a new couple, he DOES know his girlfriend well, ‘She loves two things more than me: Sleeping and her dog.’

So, he killed two birds with one stone in the most ADORABLE way ever.

For her birthday, Cassandra got [More]
