    These are pictures from our vet clinic/family zoo trip to the Indianapolis zoo last Saturday. I just got around to uploading the pictures, and I thought I would share my more favorite ones!
    (My mom was the photographer, so I can't claim any as mine. :p)

    The very pretty Tiger (who was heading back to her nice quiet spot after she demo'ed some "tiger training" for us):

    He was quite cute and hamming it up for the cameras:

    L to R: my sister's friend, my sister, me, my brother, and my brother's girlfriend. I swear this picture makes me look super short. Or maybe my baby siblings are just growing up!

    The end!

    Wait, they have dog demos at the zoo? I WANT TO WORK AT THAT ZOO. I'M MOVING. RIGHT NAO. I HOPE YOU WANT A ROOM MATE.


    Love the pictures! I really wish I could travel and go see all the zoos everywhere because they're all SO different.

    Great pics! I went to that zoo with a dear friend to visit a new baby elephant at that time.

    Hahaha, I don't know if they've always had dog demos, or if they just hired on these people for the summer/what not. There were quite a few different dogs there, and each had their own handler (who was their personal owner). Two of the trainers, I think, were top trainers in disc dog/freestyle competition. Don't ask me their names, because I don't remember. lol I took a few videos, too, I just haven't uploaded them.
