I love art and I love cats and dogs. Inserting my three cats – Madison, Audrey and Roberta and now, Jack the Dog into famous masterpieces is just plain fun. For those on facebook you can become a fan of Audrey and Roberta with Jack the Dog and join 300 other fans and follow their adventures each day.

Winter gave us one last gasp of cold, wind and snow this week. The animals at the Central Park Zoo did not mind at all. Come visit before it all melts away.

In anticipation of this week’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations I thought gathering photos of ‘green’ animals might be fun. All of today’s photos are from the Central Park Zoo except for the bottom photo which is of green iguanas at the Prospect Park Zoo. And speaking of green animals, Kermit said it best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpiIWMWWVco

Every once in awhile I break from the usual Sunday zoo photos. We went up to the NY Botanical Garden in the Bronx to see the Orchid Show: Thailand. It is an enormous exhibition filled with color, light, shadow, shape, sounds and smells. It is open through April 9th and I highly recommend a visit.orchids2017

superdogSuper Bowl Sunday is about new TV commercials, chicken wings, all sorts of munchies and a little bit of football. Thought I would share some beautiful animals enjoying their munchies, which I am sure are healthier than what you will be eating today.munchies And that is Jack (above) enjoying a pre-game football toy.

6389This Lunar New Year celebrates the Rooster. A year of the Rooster always comes after a Year of the Monkey  and before Year of the Dog. If you were born in any of the following years, you are included in the Year of the Rooster – 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993 and 2005. I searched my archives and came up short on my rooster photos so I decided to stretch the theme a bit. The rooster is part of the group called Galliformes. ‘The Galliformes are an order of heavy-bodied ground-feeding birds that includes turkey, grouse, chicken, New World quail and Old World quail, ptarmigan, partridge, pheasant, junglefowl and the Cracidae. The name derives from “gallus”, Latin for “cock” or “rooster”. Enjoy this Lunar New Year and these amazing birds who are part of this group. Cock-a-doodle-doo!rooster
