Your Daily Squee: A Baby Zonkey Was Just Born In Italy!

You guys, I’d like you to meet Ippo the baby zonkey, which is exactly what it sounds like: a donkey/zebra hybrid. Ippo was born a few days ago at an animal reserve in Florence, Italy, after her zebra dad climbed over a fence to get busy with her donkey mom (ahh, romance!). Remember when Gillian Jacobs told us that her personal theme song is “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey”? Pretty sure it’s time for an updated version: “Ippo the Italian Summer Zonkey.” Ippo is currently the only zonkey in Italy, which seems like something to celebrate. Salute! [ABC News]

Skateboarding Bulldogs, Please Never Change

Look At Him Go!

What is it with you bulldogs and skateboards? Whatever it is, don’t ever change, because bulldog/skateboard shenanigans are a foundational element of all that is right with the world. I’ve witnessed it first hand — for some reason, the bulldog breed is particularly prone to enjoy skateboard hijinks. They can jump on that board for hours. Here, Peruvian Ivan Juscamaita and his bulldog pup Biuf, teach fellow bulldogs how to gleam the cube. Juscamaita says he’s hoping to open an official bulldog skateboarding school in Lima, and donate the profits to animal shelters. We fully support that. [Telegraph]

The Acro-Cats Are Cats That Actually Follow Directions

Cats that actually listen to you?!?

Oh, I’m sorry, were you talking to me? I’m a little distracted by this acrobatic cat troupe. They’re called the Amazing Acro-Cats, and they’re a 13-cat touring troupe of feline talent. Their owner/Cat Leader is Next Level Crazy Cat Lady Samantha Martin, who’s trained her cats to do actual tricks. Do you know how hard it is to teach a cat to do anything? Anything?  Listen, I love Colonel Mustard, but he is a raging, non-compliant cat jerk and won’t do anything I ask (up to and including actually covering his poop in the litter box). So these guys? They are brilliant little cat angels. [Boston Magazine]

SAVE THAT DOG!

Today in Precious Creature news, please join me in watching this riveting video of a terrified Chow-Chow trapped on a window ledge in Brooklyn. I’m not sure what this little dude was doing. Perhaps he was hungry? Maybe he wanted an Italian Ice. Most likely, he was hot under all that fur, smelled some barbecue wafting from a local block party, heard the stereo bumpin’ The Gap Band and wanted to join in. Whatever the deal is, glad you made it out, little guy. [Gothamist]

Oh Mini Pig, I Think We All Feel The Same Way About Ice Cream

There are really only two ways to deal with super hot summer weather: 1) learn to own your boob sweat, because there’s just no way to avoid it, and 2) eat ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream. This mini pig knows what’s up, and its facial expression is one we’ve all made before after making a desperate visit to Baskin Robbins for a couple scoops of that cool, creamy relief. Aaaahhhh.
