Daddy's taking us to the zoo today, zoo today...


Jazz was very curious about all the animals she saw especially this mass of guinea pigs!




Dixie was more interested in the smells coming from the animals especially the mountain goats! And if there had have been poop on the outside of the cages she would have rolled in it for sure!


Today was Culture day here in Japan and therefor a national holiday. Shin had the day off and as it was such a bright sunny day autumn day we decided to take the girls out somewhere. Shin found a small zoo not far from here that is free and allows dogs to enter. There was a mix of domestic and wild animals and birds but all seemed very used to people and even dogs. Jazz was very curious and more scared of some of the animals than they were of her. She looked intently at all the animals and chatted with a few. Dixie on the other hand was more interested in the smells coming from the different animals and had her nose stuck to the ground and hardly realised the animals producing those smells! The quality of these few pics is not that good as they were taken on my mobile, I left the camera in the car!!

That was a great day out! I wish there were a zoo like that in our area. But, coming to think about it, anywhere outside suburban areas are like the zoo in this country... You can even see wild penguins in our coasts.

Goodness me, you get to go to the zoo??? That would never happen here, not in a million years. Glad you had fun.

Oh you lucky dogs! Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.

I bet you had a terrific time checking out all the strange animals and smells.

And seeing so many guinea pigs in one place.. JUST TOO FUNNY!

You have very brave girls! Luna can't go to the zoo, she would want to go hunting and so on. We took her only in Dino park in Austria last year but she smelled smthg and wanted to hunt - so she screamed, cried and barked and everybody were looking at us. Cherry at the top was finding a cage with rabbits .. we almost ran out :o)
