Flamingos, the Wading Birds

I took these photos when we visited Pittsburgh Zoo during Father's Day this year. These long legged wading birds are beautiful  aren't they?   Just looking at their colors makes me happy and I love their long legs and neck, they are truly unique!!
When we went  to Disney World in Florida a few years ago, we saw so many flamingos during the Zafari Tour in Animal Kingdom.

Get Your Pet Ready for Halloween with a Fun Costume

Halloween is that time of year where you can dress up as anything you can imagine. When you view your pet as more of a member of the family than just another animal, you'll love finding the perfect costume for your four-legged friend. Pet costumes range from NF jerseys and licensed costumes to fun outfits that will stop people on the street. Whether you have a dog or a cat, you can find thousands of suitable costumes online.
Safety and Comfort First

As much as you might like dressing your dog up as a horse with a cowboy on its back, your pet might not feel the same way. When choosing a costume, it's important that you pick one that feels comfortable on your pet and keeps your pet safe. Costumes with hoods or masks that fall over their eyes may keep your pet from walking correctly or interfere with its vision. You'll also want to avoid costumes that come too far down on your pet's legs. Make sure that you walk around with your pet around the house before taking it outside.

What Type of Costume is Right for Your Pet?

You know your pet better than anyone else in the world, which makes you the perfect person to choose a costume. You can find simple jerseys for your favorite team, elaborate costumes that will help your pet win best in show and even little prince and princess costumes.
