Thank you to Anthony at World Tapir Day for wanting to include Goober!   for choosing to use one of my treasured photos of Goob, for taking my suggestion to make him Mr August since that was his Birth Month :)  and for loving Goober from afar even though he never got to meet him.

Thank you to all the Tapir Friends and Fans who also donated photos.   Cheers!


  1. I am so jazzed to see Goober as Mr.August, mostly because Gobber IS MR AUGUST. I sure miss him a lot. Goober was always the happiest critter at the zoo and always managed a smile. I cannot wait to get a few of these calendars. Gosh, we always knew Goobie would be a calendar boy. Yeahhhhhhh Goober !!!

  2. @Lee- Thank you for your comment. ... I KNOW!!! It is a wonderful way to honor our Friend Goober :) He was a special guy and his smile can reach even more people. I love the photo that was chosen as I think it truly represents what a happy guy he was. I miss Goobie so much. I just try not to think about it. Love you Goob!

  3. Congrats to you and the goob! well done!
