Furry Friday ~ Zoo Trip Part III

Here's my next installment of our Zoo Trip for Furry Friday. ☺ (Part I and Part II for those that haven't seen them yet or just want to again easily :-D)

There's a Giraffe WAY back in the back against that building, about the
center of the photo. :-D

This little guy (gal?) cracked me up. He just sat there, like that, the whole time. Just chillin'. LOL

See, told you there was a Giraffe LOL

They grow up so fast! LOL

These little guys were absolutely adorable. I could've watched them for hours. ☺

And this Dude was too cool! I think Sloths are so neat looking and their claws/talons are huge! But I guess they have to be to hold them upside down. LOL

The Elephant section had a couple workers feeding the Elephants close to the fence so we could see them better. The workers also answered any questions anyone had and passed around an Elephant tooth......that sucker was about the size of my hand! One tooth! Wow.

I was happy to get pictures of this guy b/c the first time we walked past, he was no where to be found. A second pass tho, revealed him front and center eating breakfast. :-D

Bottoms up! ☺

I have one more set of pictures to share with you. More heffalump pics, our closest cousins; monkeys and even the ever gorgeous big cats. :-D

See you next Furry Friday! ☺


  1. Yay I can't wait for the big cats!! That is so awesome you got to see an elephant tooth. I've never seen one before. Did you snap a picture of it?

    1. No! I didn't and I've beat myself up for not taking one! :-(

    2. Aww it's okay! It's easy to get caught up in the moment and forget. :) No harm done!

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
