Thanks for the dose of realism, Dominic.

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 19, 2013 at 11:30pm

I hope people won't romanticize this story.  While the facts are amazing, the rest of the story is that these dogs have short miserable lives, living on garbage, often abused by people, and producing sickly puppies who won't live through the winter.  I have also seen videos where some of these dogs are quite aggressive with people.  But what can we expect in a society where homeless children also run the streets.  The dichotomy in our own society is that some dogs are treated like spoiled children, above and beyond the needs of of a canine and sometimes detrimental to their health, while others. like Russia, are treated like throw away garbage.  I hate to be a downer, because the story itself is a wonderful example of adaptation and intelligence.

I wonder if it would do any good to hang a mirror in a tree or shrub nearby?

The downside of animal intelligence.

Dominic, love the mom and baby giraffe! Such a sweet kiss! The elephant looks ready to take on the world. Thanks for the nice wake up photos.

Tony, what a way to wake up and get started, that dear little fuzzy elephant, the square fish (I didn't know they came that way), mom and baby hedgehog, and the orange butterflies perfectly matched to the flower. I think it is a cosmos. What do you think it is? I am definitely going to put in cosmos this year if it attracts butterflies, hopefully orange.

Thank you Tony!
