Let’s hear it for Honey and hope for the best

November 7, 2009


I post this story just because African Hunting Dogs are my favorite animal … and also that of my daughter who in summer 2008 helped make enrichment feeders for the three males here at the Phoenix Zoo. Mother gives birth to nine pups and unfortunately dies – a surrogate named “Honey” takes over. Here’s hoping the pups – who normally have a 50% mortality in captivity – can make it through.

    When I was young these were “Cape” Hunting Dogs.

    You scientists! You keep changing the names of things!!! Why isn’t Pluto a planet???!!!

    (I hope they make it, too.)

    The Ridger – of course Pluto isn’t a planet. He’s a dog, stupid.
