I Only Have Eyes for Ewe

(Photo by John Gomes, Alaska Zoo photographer.)

Isn't this just so cute it makes you want to puke?! A simple nose to nose is how she reminds me she loves me. She is such a lover.  Is that weird of me to say?

The above photo was taken last Saturday when we spent the afternoon at Bird Treatment and Learning Centre's Autumn Wings Festival with cutiepie Lauren the dall sheep.  A great afternoon had by all, including Miss Lauren. This was only Lauren's fourth visit off zoo grounds and she proved yet again she is a rockstar and amazing ambassador for her species, but definitely needed a nap after a long day of eating dandelions and fireweed...

Here are some of Bird TLC's feathery friends that made an appearance at the festival...

Clearly I'm an animal lover. Please don't try to tell me otherwise.


I want to give a big shout out to all of "Our Alaskan Staycation" readers.  Whether you are friends, family or complete strangers, whether you have followed from the beginning or just recently embarked on the journey with us, and whether you follow religiously or occasionally just stop on by, I can't thank you enough for all of your support!  Something that started as a way to keep in touch and communicate our adventures to friends and family back home has grown into something that is read by people all over the world.  It is my hope that it will only continue to grow. So please, keep following, keep reading and keep commenting (positive comments only please).  And if there is anything in particular you would like to see, please let me know!  

We're happy to have you along for the journey.
