Three Hours at the Zoo

Of course, I am referring to the Assiniboine Park Zoo here in Winnipeg, where I volunteer for a three hour shift once or twice a week.  During that time we move to different locations so that each shift is spent in 3 different areas.  This way we see most of the zoo in the time… Continue reading Three Hours at the Zoo

Polar Bears

It was a chilly morning for a walk (-18C), but it was sunny and not much wind, so I headed over to the Assiniboine Park Zoo.  Many of the critters enjoy the cold weather and are more active than they are during the summer, when it is more comfortable for us humans.

Assiniboine Park Zoo – June (and Chester)

We will start with Chester – he is home from his weekend at the Emergency Vet Clinic and so far is doing just fine.  He is obviously glad to be home and I am thrilled to have him by my side again.  He is not a young dog and I know I won’t have him… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo – June (and Chester)
