Maybe you have seen this or maybe you haven’t. Even if you have I’m sure you’ll want too see it again. It’s so adorable. It looks as if the penguin is being well taken care of and is happy. I sure hope so. She must miss creatures of her own kind though. And all of that walking on those tiny little legs!
This 10-year-old King Penguin was rescued from a fisherman’s line and refused to leave after he was healed. He was adopted by a family in a small town in Japan and became a beloved pet who has his own personal air-conditioned cold room. Lala is so smart – he walks to the fish store with his little backpack to shop for fresh fish every day.
Now THAT is cool. Wonderful story.
That. was. AWESOME!!! Thanks, I needed that.
Nancy sent me over for this wonderful post! We have been in sync! Check out my post for Jan. 18: http://paulatohlinecalhoun1951.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/pendergrass-e-penguin/
I love it, but can’t help but feel slightly apprehensive about his well-being. He looks great, though! It made me smile.
Enjoying your blog, BTW. I’ll be back!
I saw your penguin story. Thats fabulous, it is so cute. I could just see that fat, fuzzy little sweetie with a big smile on his face as he met a girl.
