Zoos are a great place to see pairs of animals. This week’s photo montage is devoted to pairings of all sorts.  Happy Valentine’s Day to all and enjoy the video below that cracked me up. For those that are not familiar with my little dog, that is Benny above – looking as cute as he possibly can be.

Giving and receiving gifts during the holiday is grand but at the Central Park Zoo gifts are given all year long.  This week’s photo montage salutes just some of the arrivals during 2011 at the Central Park Zoo.  The arrival of a male red panda, the birth of four Banded Mongoose, two baby Cavies, eight Penguin chicks, magpie robin chicks, a first Scarlet Ibis chick, the arrival of two young female sea lions, lots of adorable goats, two baby lambs and of course, the arrival of a lamb named Baby Irene Hope born during the maelstrom called, Hurricane Irene. The zoo had oodles of ducklings born this year including the very important Chinese Mergansers and just recently, a rare, Pink-eared duckling.

My dog, Benny, seen above, is my present to you – looking better than ever.

One more thing – I have been invited back to the Fifth Avenue Apple Store and will be giving a photo presentation on January 11th at 7 PM.  The topic is ‘A Year in Photos at the Central Park Zoo’.  Come one, come all – it is free and it will be fun.

Check out this video of the Central Park Zoo’s two red pandas enjoying a little browse.


Dog (and Cat) Days of Summer August 21, 2011

Even though taking photos of amazing and beautiful animals at zoos all over the world is definitely one of my passions I never forget about the two delightful critters that reside with me at Casa Lobo.  So this week I dedicate my photo montage to eight year old Benny the dog and 10 year old Madison the cat.

Happy Father’s Day!  Enjoy this photo salute to some of the animal kingdom’s Dads. On a different subject, yesterday was the celebration of the sixth anniversary of the day I adopted my little dog, Benny.  Savor this little video I created last year to honor his fifth anniversary.

To my friend, Barbara March 13, 2011

I dedicate this week’s photo montage to Barbara Rosenthal.  She was the adoring god-mother to my dog, Benny, the mother of Chaplin, her fabulous tuxedo cat and a dear old friend. Barbara died suddenly last week and has left a huge whole in my heart.  She had many passions including the opera, ballet, theater, fine wine, good food and travel.  But what we shared most was the love of a goofy dog named Benny. Whenever I left town I did not for one moment think that Benny was anxious, or even missed me.  He seamlessly made the transition from my house to Barbara’s house.  Her terrific cat more than tolerated Benny, the interloper, and I even think that there were many moments when he actually enjoyed the dog’s company.  You can read more about Barbara in her obituary in today’s New York Times.

A celebration of Barbara’s rich life will be held at 2 PM, on Sunday, April 10th, at ‘The Riverside’ on 76th and Amsterdam. Donations can be made in her name to the Central Park Zoo’s Horticulture Dept. (this combines her love of plants and animals) – 830 Fifth Avenue – NY NY 10065.
