A trio of hogs no longer needs to worry about someone huffing and puffing and blowing their house in!
The three female pigs made their debut this month at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Queens Zoo. They're mulefoot hogs, which have single noncloven hooves that resemble those of a mule.
The domestic breed is considered critically rare by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy because they aren't commonly bred by farmers, the zoo says.
We've loved seeing all the touching tributes to the city of Boston since the Marathon attack last month, and here's yet another to warm our hearts: Kevin Spacey's new puppy.
The House of Cards actor tweeted a photo over the weekend of his new little lady, adopted from the North Shore Animal League. "New member of my family. Her name is Boston in honor of the city," he added.
Spacey flew to Boston after the bombings to visit and pose for photos with doctors, nurses and the first responders who helped at the finish line. "Real heroes," he wrote.
Soon, Boston the puppy will join Spacey's other dog, Mini, who he said is "15 & still acting like a puppy. Be a week or so before she can meet Boston. I'm definitely in dog heaven!"
Sorry, all other species names. Thanks for playing, but you've been beat. These are babydoll lambs.
The Prospect Park Zoo, part of the Wildlife Conservation Society system in New York, recently welcomed a brother and sister pair to its babydoll lamb family. Arthur and Brooklyn were born to mother Ginger last month, and are growing a little every day.
Arthur, who weighed eight pounds at birth, will grow to be about 175 pounds. Brooklyn was only six pounds when she was born, but her expected adult size is 120 pounds.
WCS says the babydoll lamb, also called the miniature Southdown, is the oldest known purebred sheep in the world.
We have to admit that we hadn't heard of Rochester-based metal band Sirens & Sailors until this music video came out... but we're really glad we've discovered them, because this video is mind-blowing (and possibly a little ear-splitting).
If you can't bring yourself to watch all of the "Birthday Parties for Puppies" video, at least skip to 4:47 for a pretty sweet message.
Today is National High Five Day, and while we think we should all have the day off to observe this very important national holiday, the boss says no. So the best we can do is offer you this video of a guy trying to teach his baby to high five... and the dog who figures it out first.
