Turns out dogs aren't allowed at the zoo. The bipeds have a membership and go visit a few times a year. Last month, they had plans to go for a member's only day. They would have been able to go "behind the scenes" and see things like the veterinary area, food service, etc; however, it was under 20 degrees that day. They decided to go today because it was unseasonably warm (about 50 degrees F). There were some cats there that I would have liked to chase...
Dad's favorite animal to see at the zoo.
I really would have liked to see the Amur Leopards, Amur Tigers and polar bears. The leopards and tigers are named for the Amur River which runs through Siberia. My ancestors are from there, so maybe the leopards, tigers and I are distant cousins. The polar bears live in the Artic regions of North America. Mom and Dad think I might be part Malamute, or else I'm just an extra large Siberian. Mals are from Alaska, there's polar bears in Alaska... maybe, the polar bear is a distant cousin of mine too. I'll have to get Dad to work on researching that on the genealogy websites.
Well, back to watching the Bud Shootout (I was able to distract Dad because Ryan Newman isn't running the race due to rule changes - Dad's not happy about that).
