We all love him so, and he was such a SMART dog. Yet, we must be joyful when a pet finds a family of his own. All adoptees receive a beautiful, high quality collar and lead due to the generosity of lupinepet.com.

Geraldo is named for Gerald Pool, a supporter and Advisor for Amazon CARES. Thank you Gerald!

El era un perrito muy inteligente y hermoso, pero es maravilloso cuando ellos encuentran su propia casa. Todas nuestras adopciones llevan un collar y un leash, gracias a su generosidad.

This adorable baby was born at the San Diego Zoo in December 2010.

Dik-diks are a type of small antelope that is native to eastern and south-western Africa named for the alarm calls of the females, which make a dik-dik, or zik-zik sound. In addition to the female's alarm call, both the male and female make a shrill whistling sound.

Flying Dustmen

From 'Street Life in London', 1877, by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith:

"The removal of dust and refuse from the houses of the metropolis is a task which devolves on the officers of the various parishes. Although the duty of collecting dust is not always discharged to the satisfaction of householders, it must be admitted, when the gigantic nature of the work is taken into account, that there is very little ground for complaint. In the parish of Lambeth alone there are about 40,000 rateable houses. Each house is calculated to contribute on an average three loads of dust in the course of the year, so that the accumulated annual refuse of this section of London would form a mound of no mean proportions. In this parish matters are so arranged that a dust-cart is supposed to pass each door twice a week. The faithful observance of this and other rules depends jointly on the men themselves, and on the efficient supervision of foremen set over them. These foremen are in the pay of the vestry, while the men and carts are hired by the day from a contractor. The rubbish thus collected is carted away in part to "shoots" found by the vestry within the area of the parish, and in part to the Thames, where it is deposited in boats hired for its removal at one pound sterling per load."

Pet of the Week: Cosmo, 8958154
animal pound
Image by LollypopFarm
Cosmo is a male 3-year-old Beagle/Jack Russell terrier mix who was brought to Lollypop Farm because of personal problems his owner was having that made her unable to care for a dog.

Cosmo weighs about 20 pounds and has lots of energy! His favorite thing to do is play! He would love an active owner.

Cosmo would do best in a home without kids under 15. He needs to meet any dogs in the household before going home with an adopter to make sure they’ll be buddies.


Pet of the Week: Mandy, 11474777

If you’re a Beagle lover, we have a winner for you! Meet Mandy, a 2.5-year-old, who’s at Lollypop Farm because her previous owner no longer had time for her.

She’s 23 pounds of cuteness, punctuated with a big vocabulary. In her kennel, she’s busy making sure you know she’s there, once outside the chatter stops! Mandy does well on a leash; she’ll trot right along, keeping her nose constantly to the ground to check things out.

If you want to meet Mandy, bring your children, and any dogs who share your home, to meet her. Children over the age of 6 are recommended. Mandy is busy interviewing potential families, so don’t delay if you think she’s your girl!

NYC - Prospect Park Zoo: California Sea Lion
animal names
Image by wallyg
The California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus) is a coastal sea lion of the northern Pacific Ocean. Possessing of a streamlined body with a layer of blubber under the skin to provide warmth and buoyancy, males can nonetheless grow up to 600 pounds and 8 feet long. As a marine mammal, they are equally adept in water as they are on land. California Sea Lions feed on a wide-variety of seafood including fish, shellfish, and squid. They are highly sociable and gather in large numbers on beaches and coasts.

Their large eyes help them adjust to low levels of light in underwater environments, while their whiskers augment their sense of touch. Their nostrils automatically close once they hit the water. Their long front flippers rotate outward for better movement on land, and propel them forward in water. Males grow a large crest of bone on the top of their heads as they reach sexual maturity, and it is this that gives the animal its generic name (loph is "forehead" and za- is an emphatic; Zalophus californianus means "Californian big-head").

**
The Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn's only Zoo, is home to nearly 400 animals of more than 80 species. First established as a small menagerie in Prospect Park in the late 1800's, this collection of animals became the more formal Prospect Park Zoo on Flatbush Avenue that opened to the public on July 3, 1935. A Works Progress Administration (WPA) project, the Zoo was part of a massive city-wide park improvement program initiated and executed by former Parks Commissioner Robert Moses. Closed in 1988 for a five year, million dollar renovation program, the zoo was completely replaced save for the exteriors of the 1930's-era buildings. Rededicated on October 5, 1993, it joined Wildlife Conservation Society's (WCS) world-renowned network of wildlife parks in New York City.
