• Support Moe the Sloth!

    2 years ago - By Cincinnati Zoo

    By purchasing a sloth t-shirt, you are helping support the care and feeding of Moe, our 16-year-old two-toed sloth. You can find Moe hanging around on her tree in the Discovery Forest at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden! A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Sloth Institute Costa Rica (TSI) to help support their initiatives with research, rescue, rehab and release of Costa Rica's native sloths.

"It is a very rare thing for any zoo to have 50 babies born and we wanted that to be recognized in the baby's name,"...

  • Boxer Is Just Brilliant With Baby

    Talk about having the patience of Job, I think Boxers have that when it comes to dealing with babies. They really are brilliant; super patient and comfortable with them!
    Just like Nikki the Boxer here taking care of and allowing baby Kai to use her as a pillow. Mom didn't want her kissing Kai yet and that's okay with Nikki. Maybe later on, she will allow her to kiss Kai when he's a little older. For now, being his pillow is just mighty fine with her. Anything to show Kai that she already loves him a lot and will always be there to help take care of him because after all...

    Our constant companions; our partners in crime; defender; protector; love of our lives and theirs! Dogs, no matter how old they are, are all that and they begin to mean more to us the older they get.
    For all the years that they have been with us, time spent together become more precious as time goes by. The bond and love we have for one another grow stronger, tighter. We are so lucky to have these silly dogs who will always be young at heart, in our lives. I can't imagine my life without my Maxi at all and she's 11 years old now. She snorts like a pig when she's looking...

    15 Cute Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of

    2 years ago - By iHeart Dogs

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most of us can agree that dogs are pretty darn cute. Especially when it comes to certain breeds, we just love their unique looks and adorable personalities. Just when you think you've seen them all, though, another breed comes around and shows us that dogs just keep getting cuter.

    15 Adorably Tired Dogs That Just Want To Sleep

    2 years ago - By iHeart Dogs

    It's a ruff life being a dog and sometimes you just need a minute to relax. Rejuvenate. Get some beauty sleep. Whether you're an apartment dwelling couch potato or a nationally competing canine athlete, there are difficult decisions and rules. Don't eat the cat, don't poop here, don't pee there - when can a pooch catch a break? Sometimes it gets to be a little too much and dogs just need to sleep.

  • Dog Cries When Reunited With Owners

    2 years ago - By iHeart Dogs

    I'm always so amazed at the kind of love our dogs give us and, if you think about it, we actually give so little back to them in return. Sure, we spend time with them; walk them; feed them; bathe them; bring them to their vets; play with them but they just aren't our priority, are they?
    But to them, we are. Their world revolve around us. Their loyalty and love is all for us. Still there are times, things happen and we have to let them go. No matter how much time passes and even if they are in another forever home; when we reunite with them, they still show us how much...

    Riding the Wave of Change
    by Glenn Williams
    As the story of Cecil the Lion continues to defy the desires of those wishing his story would just disappear; and continues to provide the motivations for those that desire his story to ride the wave of change, this story also seems to have evolved into the modern day biblical version of David vs. Goliath.
    Goliath, of course, represents the hunting industry, their army of lobbyists and endless supply of financial might; including those that spend $50,000 for the right to kill a lion, much like you might spend $5.00 to purchase a box of cereal...
