Cubby cubbin' it, ya'll

I'm sure ya'll have seen this one, but I just had to post an official pic. Peeps down at the San Diego Zoo had two lion cubs, of which "Koza", below, is one. Unfortunately, his twin died.To encourage social behavior they introduced a Mastiff puppy for Koza to play with. The photos are very sweet.


Big thanks to Wendy "Hot Coffee" D.

The exppression on the cub's face in the above photo is priceless. And the playing photos - AAAAAA! Of course, it will be interesting once Koza gets stronger... :)

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 06:28 AM

Oh wow, he is so beautiful but so completely adorable, like a cartoon kitten with those eyes. LOVE the extra photos, especially #s 4 and 13.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 06:37 AM

Oh I love his widdle puddy paws!!! The pics on the origin site show some great paw-age!!!!

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 06:46 AM

His face almost looks human, with that enigmatic Mona Lisa smile on his anerable face...

(...oh man, I actually SAID "anerable"...see what y'all have done to me?!)

#4 is the CUTEST pic I've ever seen! It's gonna be a wallpaper ASAP.

[09:56] schmoopie: of course, in a year, the tiger will eat him.
[09:56] theo: OK, *NOW* I want a dog.
[09:56] theo: No wait.
[09:56] theo: I want a LION.
[09:56] schmoopie: does it have to come with its own tiger?
[09:56] schmoopie: er, lion. sorry.
[09:57] schmoopie: right now doggie seems to be getting the best of him in most of the tussles. but i'll be that's going to rapidly change.
[09:57] theo: Just bidin' his time wit dem big ol paws...
[09:57] schmoopie: ...and big ol fangs...
[09:58] schmoopie: that's not going to be a small dog, either. but not lion-sized.
[10:01] theo: You had the bowl all morning! It's MY turn, pupface! http://photos.signonsandiego.com/gallery1.5/oddcouple/DTwap251922x13
[10:01] schmoopie: LOL!
[10:02] schmoopie: in the lion's sudden snarl, the pup hears a warning of things to come...

Do not look into the eyes, you will be in his power.... *too late*

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:18 AM

those eyes ...

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:18 AM

look at those eyes! so sweet and innocent looking.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:35 AM

Theo! you forgot: "end scene" (dramatic pause for applause)


 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:35 AM

So, uh, why was it necessary to Photoshop that animal's eyes? They look completely bogus.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:56 AM

See, that's why it's *your* blog.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 08:56 AM

Huh. Those photos of the pup and cub together seem not so sweet to me... more like the cub is thinking "get this spastic freakin' puppy away from me!" It seems seriously annoyed.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 09:03 AM

The absolute cutest ever!

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 09:38 AM

Hey peeps -- StuffOnMyCat is back up. FYI.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 10:11 AM

OK I'm posting way too much but one last thing...

Mack, I watched the video in the article that Mo linked to, and those cub eyes aren't retouched. See for yourself. You may "Aaaawwwwwwww" in safety and confidence.

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 10:33 AM

OMG, THE EYES! I think I might cry. Hold me.

Look at that expression!! It's so sweet! It's like he's saying, "Uhhhh, I didn't do it, honest. Look how cute I am. How could something so cute do anything bad?"

I love him. He wants to be my Valentine!

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 01:37 PM


In the video, there's a moment where Cairo the dog is getting called out for something and he has a very similar expression on his mug.

"What?!? I didn't do anything..."

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 02:56 PM

I can't believe how cute he is...

 |  Feb 13, 2006 at 05:37 PM

This has soooooo been photoshopped...

 |  Feb 24, 2006 at 10:07 AM

You are soooooo not paying attention...

 |  Feb 24, 2006 at 10:10 AM

looks too photoshoped, really don't like it

 |  Mar 03, 2006 at 11:55 AM

Unfortunately this cub had to be euthanized after someone was careless and removed a barrier keeping him from a lioness that was not his mother. She mauled him beyond repair :(

 |  May 10, 2006 at 11:45 AM

well, that sucks.
