This is like the old Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom show. Only in someone's backyard in Peoria. And, without the gore.
Remember Sheeba the cat? The last time we saw her, she wasn't feeling welI and sucked at playing the board game Risk. Apparently, she's not very good at taxes either, but I wouldn't mind if she did mine. We see her here with Dan, who marvels that she managed to calculate a $10,000 return, even though she didn't make much income this year (having been fired from Denny's and all).
This angsty canine uses music as an outlet for his inner torment. Perhaps this doggie and my favorite little baby synth player should combine forces to form an adorable-avant-garde art-rock duo.
It's impressive enough when a cat can talk, but this one seems to have acquired an English accent. His other hobbies include taking tea, chasing "birds," and feasting on fish and chips.
Meet Elke, the four-day-old hand raised Francois Leaf-Monkey as she poses
on the red carpet at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney like a total pro. A native of Northeast Vietnam and Southeast China, this little red-headed monkey's heart-shaped face and calm demeanor tells me she's gonna be a supah-star!
Move over de Kooning, it's prime time for de Canine, aka Ziggy the abstract painter dog. His tools are modest (a paper towel holder with a paintbrush attached). His subjects, abstract (splotches on a blank page). But make no mistake, this fuzzy van Gogh, who could use his body as a big brush if he wanted to, has an artistic temperament on top of it all. Look out.
"Dinner has finished for the humans. They appear to have left a few pieces of meat and some exciting green cruciferous vegetable on a plate. I believe it is out of their purr-view. And that is when I shall strike from my perch behind this plant. They will never know. . ."
