Mesker Park Zoo to Euthanize Donna the Hippo Today [Video]

This is so sad.  Mesker Park Zoo announced yesterday that "with heavy heart" they have to euthanize Donna the Hippo today.  At 60-plus years-of-age, Donna is the oldest hippopotamus living in captivity.  But, over the last few months, her quality of life has declined siginificantly and Mesker officials were forced to make a painful decision.  Today, Wednesday, August 1st, 2012, Donna will go to sleep for the last time.  But she leaves behind generations of adults and children who marveled in wonder at her playfulness and spirit.  In case you never got to see Donna for yourself, here's some video captured by some folks who became instant fans when they got to meet her.

Meet Ashleigh & Pudsey from Britain’s Got Talent [Video]

This is the COOLEST dog on Earth!  I am a huge fan of America's Got Talent and was tuned into the results show last week.  And I am so happy that I was.  We were introduced to Ashleigh and Pudsey, the reigning champions of Britain's Got Talent.  Being a huge fan of circus acts, I have see a lot of "dog and pony" shows in my day, but I have never seen a dog like this!  Pudsey not only dances . . . he learns choreography and, with his owner/trainer Ashleigh, pulls off elaborate Vegas-style production numbers.  YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS!!
