Boo at the Zoo

Hippo took a stroll through the National Zoo on Sunday to enjoy the Boo at the Zoo decorations. He dressed up for Halloween, but I don't know what he had in mind. Do you?

Happy Hippo Halloween!

Four-day old hippo

I haven't been able to find any baby pictures of Hippo. But we did uncover shots of this four-day old hippopotamus at Amneville Zoo in France. His name is Samburu. Happy zeroth birthday, Samburu!

Luckiest Hippo in the World!

I am the luckiest little Hippo in the whole world! I took a short vacation to Disney World with my entourage and did a lot of cool things that even the big hippos never get to do. I'm disappointed that I didn't get to meet the pretty Hippo Ballerina from Fantasia, but I went on a lot of rides, saw some shows, and best of all--I have THREE new hats. I might even be the best dressed Hippo you've ever met!

I am the proud owner of a small hippo sized pair of Mickey Mouse ears (a must have for any Hippo Disney adventure). The bestest part, though, is I finally have not just one, but two sombreros! I have always wanted a sombrero! I am so happy and excited!

My formal sombrero is black, very snazzy looking with its silver trim, and matches my beady little Hippo eyes. My every day business sombrero is red--a nice happy color to match my personality.

Hippo has discovered that there is another small hippopotamus named Hippo! Maybe they're cousins; there is quite a resemblance. That Hippo took a trip to Disneyland in August with his ballet misstress and posted photos.

Hippo likes ballet. Whenever I play music he starts to dance. He's not so good at the spinning and jumping himself, but he likes to watch it. Hippo also likes the looks of Disneyland and hopes he can go someday to see Mickey and ride the Tea Cups.

Pet store

Hippo wonders why all these animals are trapped behind glass. He sure is glad that he was rescued from a stuffed animal shelter and given a good home.
