    Now holding a place in the Guinness Book of World Records- This Gentoo penguin “Olde” knows how to chill and take things in stride, as she steps into another year at an amazing 41 years old!  It is said that penguins in captivity usually live to about 30 years old, in the wild 15-20.  So what could be her secret? Well, according to her keepers…. “She’s very quiet and calm. She’s never one to act out, either on other penguins or zookeepers, and never has been.”   Maybe that’s it!! Along with some good help around her Im sure 🙂

    This is Giovanna wanting to remind you that pet insurance is not just for dogs and cats….

    All pets are family from the 2 legged to four legged, whether its fur, feathers or scales…. We definitely love them all.

    And when they become ill, they need care too.
    From the routine exam to diagnostics, and or treatment.  All of which we know too well.  Something that can get very expensive very  quickly.

    This is the new addition to our outdoor terrarium. I love it!

    Outdoor terrariums are so much fun!
    But always make sure its kept up, so not to be a breeding ground for mosquitos.

    Mosquitos can transmit so many diseases that can be harmful to both you and your pet.  The very well known zika virus that spread to people, and of course heartworm that can be transmitted to your pet.
    Did you know there are over ten diseases that can be transmitted by mosquitos?

    Fish are always a good idea in a terrarium, to keep mosquito larvae out of your pond.

    They are so easy to build, and when kept up so beautiful.  I don’t remember a Summer without dragonflies.
