Our Newest Ambassador

When I set a goal and say I'm going to do something, I'm going to get the job done.  When I am doubted or underestimated, you better believe I'm going to go above and beyond what it takes to reach my goal.  Doubt just adds fuel to the fire.  So when I set the goal to harness train the Zoo's dall sheep lamb Lauren and take her to an outreach downtown Anchorage, there was no way in hell I was going to fail.  I set the same goal for myself last summer with the musk ox girls and was successful, so why wouldn't I be able to do it again? Perfectly normal goal, right?! Normal or not, at least I can now check that off the list!  Goal complete, with flying freakin' colors.

And here's a behind-the-scenes look at what it looks like to take a dall sheep on an outreach.  Copilot Lauren was as happy as pie.  She even took a quick beauty nap before her big debut.

What a wonderful addition to our Alaska Zoo Animal Ambassador family.

A day later, the smile is still on my face.
