Just four days later we have now lost another precious friend....

Orkney

I made a Memorial video for each friend.

For some time I have wanted to use my many photos of my precious Zoo Friends to make each one a video montage.  As of yesterday, I have lost four Zoo friends in 5 weeks.  Its heartbreaking.  As I look for photos I shed many tears.  I didn't think I'd be making Memorial videos, but when I saw some news photo's of Gene (Black Rhino) and they weren't even him, I needed to.  Here's my tribute to these amazing beings.

RIP Tunya, Bubsy, Mashaki/Gene, Orkney and Wishbone  XO.

And this past Monday we lost yet another precious friend, 

Wishbone.  RIP my sweet boy Bear.  XO

I am having a hard time with this, so it may be a bit on Wishy's tribute video
(done and link is above with others), but he will have one!
Please read my final post on my blog dedicated to him

  3. @Anonymous- Please keep checking on post updates. Sorry, I did plan to post those photos, but as you can see, losing yet another friend has pushed that back.
